Our first movie night was well-attended; thanks to those who came and laughed their way through 'Day of the Animals.' For those who missed it, the movie is available to check out... and we hope to do another movie night, sometime next year.


Author Todd Borg paid a visit to the branch, and was met by a room full of enthusiastic fans. Three lucky readers won a copy of his latest Tahoe mystery title, and he had more books available for sale.


If you missed this opportunity to hear Todd talk about his books and life as an author, check out the Left Coast Crime 2018 mystery convention in Reno, where he will feature as Toastmaster!
