Robert B. Parker's IronhorseRobert B. Parker's Ironhorse by Robert Knott
"Robert B. Parker's legion of fans will be thrilled with Ironhorse.  Robert Knott, co-writer of the screenplay for Appaloosa - Bob's remarkable western- has penned the next great saga featuring itinerant lawmen Everett Hitch and Virgil Cole.   Knott's new novel reads just like vintage Parker and the storyline crackles with all the excitement and humor of what is a perfect continuation of the Hitch/Cole series. Parker fans are going to love it!" —Ed Harris, Academy Award-nominated actor

New Computer Stations in the Children's Room

Image of AWE computersThanks to the generosity of our Friends, we have new game computers in the Children's Department.  There are two Early Literacy Stations from AWE (Advanced Workstations in Education), and two stations with specialized Internet browsers.

The Early Literacy Station (ELS) is a dynamic all-in-one digital learning solution for children ages 2-8. It is a self-contained unit requiring no Internet connection, so it is safe and secure. The educational titles are pre-loaded on the computer and are displayed using engaging graphics and intuitive menus.  But it's not just reading literacy that ELS promotes, but also proficiency in math, science & nature, social studies & geography, reading, phonics, and language arts, writing & computer skills, reference, and music & art.  Although, there are over 60 "games" loaded on the ELS computers, many of the games have more games within itself bringing the total up to 158.  Two ELS stations have replaced our old CD-ROM stations C & D.  The stations are first come, first serve.  They cannot be reserved.  Students may go on for up to an hour before being logged off.  No library card is required.
