Well, the wait is FINALLY over!!! Stephenie Meyer’s latest tale of Bella, Edward and Jacob has been released!… and you can get it here! It is currently on display in the Young Adult area, waiting for an anxious reader! Sadly, however, it’s not going to stay there for long because on Tuesday, August 14 I will have to send it to other towns so their patrons can read it. So, if you’re interested in snagging this title before it is shipped off, PLEASE call the library, come pick it up, or email me and say “I NEED ECLIPSE!” and I will save it here with your name on it. And if it is too late, and Eclipse has left our shelf, still let me know you want it! I will add your name to the list and you should get it shortly. 🙂
