Placeholder Image

LARNED — The Jordaan Memorial Library book club will meet at 9 a.m. Tuesday, July 19. Come see the newest books ready for checkout.  Come prepared to share a book you are currently reading. Enjoy the conversation and find some new authors to read.
We appreciate donations of books and magazines but please call before you come.
A few things to consider before you donate books —
Paperbacks held together with rubber bands and no covers need to be thrown away.
Books that have been stored for years need to be dumped. Textbooks more than 10 years old are not useful to anyone.
Moldy books are a health hazard. Thanks for your cooperation.

She faces another challenge when a friend forces her to keep a secret that will undo families and friendships. Carley also has to deal with an array of feelings when her husband’s former law partner keeps showing up at unexpected times in “Heat Wave,” by Nancy Thayer.
