Lost Symbol News

Reading the Lost Symbol? Then What?
The library has four copies of Dan Brown's latest, The Lost Symbol; two more are on the way, along with a copy of the book in audio CD format. Please keep in mind that one copy is a Speed Read (7-day circulation period, first-come first served) and if you don't mind reading large print, give us a call and we'll shift your hold to the large print copy. We’d also be grateful to those of you who bought the book but don’t plan to keep it; please consider donating your copy to the library.

Either way -- i
