Too many DVDs? Consider donating some of them to the Library… we have many patrons who cannot afford cable tv and regularly check out movies at the Library. Drop off inside or in the tan book drop outside of the library door. (Donated DVDs we don’t use are placed on our book sale cart or donated to other organizations)
According to Wikipedia, Clayton Conrad Anderson (born February 23, 1959) is a retired NASA astronaut. Launched on STS-117, he replaced Sunita Williams on June 10, 2007 as a member of the ISS Expedition 15 crew. Anderson was born in Omaha, but considers Ashland, Nebraska to be his hometown, as he graduated from Ashland-Greenwood High School. He received a bachelor of science degree in physics at Hastings College, NE, and a master of science degree in aerospace engineering at Iowa State University in 1983. Anderson is the first and only astronaut from Nebraska and was widely reported in news media as the astronaut rejected fifteen times by NASA before being accepted in 1998. His book, “The Ordinary Spaceman: From Boyhood Dreams to Astronaut” is available at the library. Fellow Nebraskan and Olympic gold medalist, Curt Tomasevicz states, “Clay has truly had an exciting life full of adventure and challenges. He tackles each moment in life with ambition and optimism. His life stories can inspire each of us to reach further, dig deeper, and fly higher. From his days growing up in Nebraska and his family life to his time on the International Space Station, Clay proves that life is what you make of it.”

When her husband is suspected of the murder, Kate vows to find the killer. “Stripped Bare” by Shannon Baker, who spent more than 20 years in the Nebraska Sandhills.
