The Friday Book Group will meet at 2:00 p.m. Fri. Dec. 20th on the 2nd floor of the library to discuss Felicity Hayes-McCoy’s “The Library at the Edge of the World.” Driving her mobile library van through Finfarran’s farms and villages, local librarian Hanna Casey tries not to think of the sophisticated London life she abandoned when she left her cheating husband. With her daughter Jazz travelling the world and her relationship with her mother growing increasingly fraught, Hanna decides to reclaim her independence. Then, when the threatened closure of her library puts her plans in jeopardy, she finds herself leading a battle to restore the heart and soul of the fragmented community. Will she also find the new life she’s been searching for?
