Updates for July

The stream of new books has thinned somewhat this summer, as we end our budget year.  But take a look at these nice titles that did arrive in July!

Also, remember that parking downtown is no longer free on Saturdays.  Starting this past week, meters are being checked and tickets are being given (until 7:00 pm, that is.)  Tickets are $10.00, so do be careful.
