It is with great sorrow that we announce the unexpected passing of our wonderful friend and colleague on The Friends' Board, Barbara Stanford, who lit up every room she entered with good humor and her beautiful smile. Barb died peacefully in her sleep early this morning, Tuesday, March 20. She excelled in her many roles as Board Member: Vice-President, Membership Chair and Board Development Chair. We will all miss her warm, caring personality, cheerfulness and eagerness to support a community she dearly loved.

Legal Tender by Lisa Scottoline

A page turner from the very beginning, I read this in one sitting because couldn’t put it down. Fast-paced, entertaining and smart, Scottoline barely gives you time to breathe in this race against the clock of injustice.

Philly-born and -bred attorney Bennie Rosatto finds herself accused of the murder of her former lover and soon-to-be former law partner. Not one to let her reputation and everything she’s worked for be taken away, she goes “underground,” hiding in plain sight, to find the real killer.

With a supporting cast of great characters, Scottoline takes you on a great, high energy ride, with humor and intelligence.

The Friends of the Palm Springs Library exists to help the Library staff provide world-class service to the community.
