Need a suggestion for something to read or watch from the library this weekend? Maybe you'd like to check out an ebook or audiobook? Try some of our Staff Picks, to find what some of the other people in our parish are enjoying.

We know that not every staff pick will appeal to every patron, but not to worry! If you need help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.

Desperation by Stephen King

Something is very wrong in the mining town of Desperation, NV. A rogue police officer is abusing his power in the worst of ways, citizens are going insane (or missing), dangerous animals lurk around every corner, and fear clings like a heavy fog.

This book is not for the faint of heart or stomach. You will beg characters to leave town (they won’t), and your heart will race as a mysterious survivor child seems to be the only chance out of Desperation.

Enjoy this audibook of Stephen King’s latest tale of horror during a long drive or as you go for a walk...wherever the lights will remain on.

If Desperation interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
