Week 7 of the SYNC free audiobooks program: Thursday, June 8 – Wednesday, June 14
The main characters in this week’s book pair are on the run. In Plus One, which is set in a vivid alternate reality where America is rigidly divided between people who live and work during the day (Rays) or night (Smudges), Sol, a Smudge, stumbles on a government conspiracy to manipulate her people. During her escape from the authorities, she gains an unexpected ally: a Ray, a boy the world tells her she can’t love.
In If I Run, Casey knows that she’s innocent but her DNA is all over the crime scene. There’s no use talking to police; they have failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she’s arrested . . . or worse. The truth doesn’t matter anymore. But what is the truth? That’s the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren’t adding up. Casey Cox doesn’t fit the profile of a killer. If she isn’t guilty, why did she run?
The books can only be downloaded during that week and are replaced by another set the next week. More information on the current pair and a QR code to play a brief clip from the each can be found in the library window. A bookmark listing all of the books can be obtained from the library as well.
The library is clearing out its 11 year collection of Rolling Stone magazines (June 22, 2000 to Sept. 1, 2011). They are free to whoever wants them (boxes are available). Any unclaimed issues will be recycled at the end of the year.
