The dog stars by Peter Heller — Hig survived the flu that killed everyone he knows. He lives in the hangar of an abandoned airport with his dog, his only neighbor a gun-toting misanthrope. In his 1956 Cessna, Hig flies the perimeter of the airfield or sneaks off to the mountains to fish and to pretend that things are the way they used to be. But when a random transmission beams through his radio, the voice ignites a hope that a better life--something like his old life--exists beyond the airport. Knowing he will not have fuel to fly home, he follows the trail of the static-broken voice on the radio.

The library has been certified under the Library of Michigan Quality Service Audit Checklist (QSAC) as both Essential and Enhanced. The certification is good for three years. (The highest level – Excellent – will be unattainable for the foreseeable future, as CPL will be unable to comply with some requirements - tuition reimbursement program for certified staff members, providing live online reference services, etc.)
The library also received congratulatory letters from State Representatives Kurt Heise and Dian Slavens for being one of only 13 Michigan libraries that received Enhanced certification.

Dewey: the small-town library cat who touched the world [kit] by Vicki Myron ; with Bret Witter — How much of an impact can an animal have? How many lives can one cat touch? How is it possible for an abandoned kitten to transform a small library, save a classic American town, and eventually become famous around the world? You can't even begin to answer those questions until you hear the charming story of Dewey Readmore Books, the beloved library cat of Spencer, Iowa. Dewey's story starts in the worst possible way. Only a few weeks old, on the coldest night of the year, he was stuffed into the returned book slot at the Spencer Public Library. He was found the next morning by library director, Vicki Myron, a single mother who had survived the loss of her family farm, a breast cancer scare, and an alcoholic husband. Dewey won her heart, and the hearts of the staff, by pulling himself up and hobbling on frostbitten feet to nudge each of them in a gesture of thanks and love. For the next nineteen years, he never stopped charming the people of Spencer with his enthusiasm, warmth, humility (for a cat) and, above all, his sixth sense about who needed him most.
A complete list of winners and finalists can be found on the Western Writers of America website.
