Kill a what?

Thanks to a generous donation from the NHSaves and the New Hampshire State Library, patrons of the WMCC Fortier Library can borrow a Kill A Watt Energy Detector.

Simply plug the device into an outlet, and plug the appliance into the detector for one hour. This little device shows how much energy an appliance uses, even when not in use (the clock on a DVD player, for instance).

Ask a member of the library staff if you can check out the Kill A Watt Energy Detector and Cut the Carbon in your home.

The Godwulf Manuscript

Meet Spenser, a Boston private detective. In Robert B. Parker's novel, The Godwulf Manuscript, Spenser is hired to track down a stolen manuscript, hopefully without getting himself killed in the process.

This title is the first in the Spenser series, which was the basis for the popular TV series, Spenser For Hire.

Please join us for the third in our Tough Guys series on Wednesday, October 13, 2010, at 7 p.m. at the White Mountains Community College Fortier Library with Dartmouth scholar Suzanne Brown leading the discussion. The series is funded in part by the New Hampshire Humanities Council.

Copies of the books are available at the WMCC Fortier Library and the Berlin Public Library.
