Looking for the next great book? Look no further! Our resident author, Susan Van Kirk, has a book to share.
Seldom has a book moved me to tears, but Sandrine’s Case certainly did because of the beauty of its prose and its exquisite ending. Do NOT read the ending first!
Professor Sam Madison is on trial for the murder of his wife, Sandrine, who was found dead in their bed in a posed position. But did he murder his 46-year-old wife, who was also a professor at Coburn College in their small Southern town, or did she commit suicide? Click HERE to read more...
The Aqua Project
We are the new recipients of a 200+ gallon fish tank, generously donated to the library by Monmouth College. Together we are forming the Aqua Project, an aquatic adventure and partnership between the library, the college, area schools and our patrons. Two local species of fish currently reside in the tank: bass and blue gills. The purpose of the project is to raise awareness about the importance of water in our community, to educate our patrons on the ecosystems that thrive in an aquarium, and to offer a scientific resource to the students in Monmouth. For more information on the project, check out our wiki: https://sites.google.com/site/wcplaquaproject/
