Adult Book Club meets from 4:30 to 5:30 every Second Thursday of each month.  Please come and join us.   April 9th. book club choice is "The Lost Slab by Rick Kelsheimer.  

Maggie O'Hara was at a dead end. Her husband split for a college co-ed and as the only female deputy in a good ole boy Sheriff's department, her career was on the fast track to nowhere. Just when she thought things couldn't get any worse, they did. Mark Underwood ruled the county like a banana republic dictator. He accumulated a fortune generated by controlling every aspect of the local government. Crawford County was his kingdom and nobody was going to take it from him. "The Black Panther of Flat Rock" was nothing more than an urban legend, wasn't it? Greg Kitner had nothing to fear as he walked home on a deserted road after a fight with his girl friend. Logic said his eyes were playing tricks on him when he saw something moving in the wood.  Please call the library at 586-5317 if you wish for us to order you a book.

 The friendly and helpful staff helped me get Wifi at the library so I could complete a task and still have visit time with family while I was in town yesterday! The library is a wonderful resource for Palestine! 

 We always feel welcome. It's just a great resource for our small community. The children's programs are wonderful. The people are always friendly and helpful. 

 Beautiful, Very modern facility.
