We’re heading into August, and I, for one, have already had enough of the heat. Honestly, I think the best course to follow might be staying inside, luxuriating in the AC, and enjoying some books, DVDs, and music from the library. You might have other thoughts, but I’m feeling pretty confident about this course of action for myself.

And we’ve got some great stuff coming—new Sandra Brown and Stephen King; Louise Penny and America’s Test Kitchen; BTS, Great Courses, F9, and NCIS: New Orleans. Below is the list of new Adult titles for August. Feel free to put as many of these on hold in the catalog as necessary to see you through the heat.
