Plenty to do at Clinton library

Sad news for readers last week. Best-selling author Tom Clancy passed away on Oct. 1 at the age of 66. His military thrillers took the world by storm with his debut novel "The Hunt for Red October" in 1984 and many of his best-sellers have been made into hit movies.

Mr. Clancy has a new release due out from his publishers on Dec. 3 entitled "Command Authority." Readers may place holds on this upcoming release at the library.
