This website recently became one of the first Central Ohio public library websites to use https. Now all of your communications with our site will be encrypted, so your online interactions with the Library will be more secure. With https, anyone trying to eavesdrop on your web browsing session would see scrambled up gibberish instead of information you typed into our website, whether you wanted to register for a program, ask a question, or request an interlibrary loan. How can you find out which other websites use this protocol? Look for a lock symbol on the left hand side of the address bar, and a web address beginning with https:// instead of the original http://.

The Widow by Fiona Barton

 “It's a strange feeling, owning a secret. It's like a stone in my stomach, crushing my insides and making me feel sick every time I think of it.”

Jean leads a pleasant life. She married a man she loves, lives in a nice house and seems by all accounts to be quite contented. But then her husband is accused of a horrific crime. Her life becomes a nightmare. She begins to doubt the man she loves.

Is he guilty or is he not? Does Jean know the truth and, if so, when did she learn? In this psychological thriller the author wraps each character in layers of truth and half-truths, lies and deceit. As soon as you get through one layer and think you know, you will find yourself pulled in another direction and questioning your previous assumptions.
