Crochet and Craft
First and Third Friday
July 7 and 21
Want to learn how to crochet? Have a project you’re working on that you want to show off, need help with? Come to the library and learn or teach a handcraft (knitting, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch, macrame, origami, chainmail, whatever). Crafters of all ages and genders are welcome. Bring supplies and we’ll build the expertise together.
Description: Come over to Bertha Williams Library and play Scrabble with us. We have plenty of dictionaries for you to brush up on your vocabulary and the Jumble in the Montgomery Advertiser is helpful too! See how sharp your Scrabble skills are against the librarians or just play for fun!

Title: And When She Was Good
Author: Laura Lippman
Description: In the comfortable suburb where Heloise Lewis lives, she’s just a mom, the youngish widow with a forgettable job who somehow never misses a soccer game or a school play. In the state capitol, she’s the redheaded lobbyist with a good cause and a mediocre track record.
But in discreet hotel rooms throughout the area, she’s the woman of your dreams—if you can afford her hourly fee.
But now, after a decade, her secret life is under siege. Her once oblivious accountant is asking loaded questions. Her longtime protector is hinting at new dangers. Her employees can’t be trusted. One county over, another so-called suburban madam has been found dead in her car, a suicide. Or is it? And then she learns that her son’s father, a killer and former pimp, might be released from prison. With no formal education, no real family, and no friends, Heloise has to remake her life—again. Disappearing will be the easy part. The trick will be living long enough to start a new life. ~Dust Jacket
