Library Happenings

Sharon Lavender

Holiday best wishes to everyone from the SLCC librarians. For those who are new to Sun Lakes, books on our open shelves may be borrowed anytime during clubhouse hours. Librarians are available from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday, to check out books from the enclosed shelves. This can be a very busy time for everyone. We hope you will find the time to stop by our library and select the perfect book to help you relax.

Payson author Karen Randau has recently written three Rim Country Mysteries: Deadly Deceit, Deadly Inheritance and Deadly Choices. We currently have all three books in our collection. These books fall into a new publisher category called Short on Time Books. They are fast-paced thrillers with intricate plots, lots of action and rollercoaster-like twists and turns. Forget everything for a few hours and check out this new author. Hopefully, you will then be waiting eagerly for her next book in this series.

Just a quick reminder: When you borrow a hardcover book, please be sure to return those book jackets. New books are added to our collection daily. We often have best sellers available shortly after publication. Our library is fortunate to receive so many generous donations. Thank you so very much.
