In Memorium — Krystal Anderson

Administrator : April 14, 2015 1:21 pm : Elkhart Public Library

krystalWith deep respect and sadness, Elkhart Public Library pays tribute to Krystal N. Anderson, who served on the Board of Trustees from July 2012 until her unexpected passing on
April 10, 2015.

We will miss Krystal’s warmth and compassion, the positive energy and cheerful outlook she brought to every Board meeting, and her unwavering support of the Library. We have lost a friend, an advocate, and an irreplaceable member of the community.

Our deepest sympathies go to Krystal’s family, friends, and colleagues.

FOR LAND SAKES: 73 YEARS IN REAL ESTATE by Charles H. Fieldhouse (818 F45)

A GAME OF THRONES and A CLASH OF KINGS  by George R. R. Martin (FAN, Audiobook, eBook, Spanish Language) • I am thoroughly enjoying listening to this series (A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE), which is steeped in magic, intrigue and mystery. If you have caught any of the HBO series based on the books, and enjoyed the fast-paced storytelling from multiple perspectives, then I encourage you to read or listen to this series. Whether you read or watch first makes little difference, though if visual violence or sexual situations and nudity are problems for you, you might prefer the books. ~Jane, Administration

THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS by M. R. Carey (FIC, Audiobook) • This book could be easily be categorized as Science Fiction. The slow, suspenseful disclosure of the core problem and the final solution sprung at the end were very nicely done. It was, however, difficult to keep reminding myself that the typical childish irrationality, uncharacteristic adult analysis, and reactions of the 10 year old girl were supposed to be the result of her upbringing and exceptional intelligence. The typical tragedy at the end to avoid the happy ever after was unnecessary, but I enjoyed it very much. ~Henry, Custodian

HADESsr-hades by Candice Fox (FIC) • Deliciously dark. I devoured it.
