Welcome

The Tri-City Library District selects, acquires, organizes and provides access to books, magazines, cds, dvds and other materials of interest and/or permanent value. These items provide for the educational, informational, cultural and recreational needs of the surrounding areas users. The Library also promotes the importance and appreciation of reading and community involvement from childhood through adult programs.

The Tri-City Library District site also serves as a central repository and online community center. We want everyone to look beyond the books and see the library as an important resource in the Tri-City area.

    4th Tuesday Book Club (August 2019)

    4th Tuesday Book Club (August 2019)

    Meet Georgia, SuSu, Teeny, Diane, and Linda--five women who've been best friends through thirty years since high school. Sit in when they don their red hats and purple outfits to join Atlanta's Ladies Who Lunch for a delicious monthly serving of racy jokes, iced tea and chicken salad, baskets of sweet rolls, the latest Buckhead gossip, and most of all--lively support and caring through the ups and downs of their lives. When Diane discovers her banker husband has a condo (with mistress) that he bought with their retirement funds, the Red Hats swing into action and hang him with his own rope in a story that serves up laughter, friendship, revenge, high school memories, long-lost loves, a suburban dominatrix, and plenty of white wine and junk food. From the 1960s to the present, The Red Hat Club is a funny, unforgettable novel that shows the power women can find when they accept and support each other.

    3rd Thursday (September 2019)

    London, 1940: Winston Churchill has just been sworn in, war rages across the Channel, and the threat of a Blitz looms larger by the day. But none of this deters Maggie Hope. She graduated at the top of her college class and possesses all the skills of the finest minds in British intelligence, but her gender qualifies her only to be the newest typist at No. 10 Downing Street. Her indefatigable spirit and remarkable gifts for codebreaking, though, rival those of even the highest men in government, and Maggie finds that working for the prime minister affords her a level of clearance she could never have imagined - and opportunities she will not let pass.
