The McConnell Story Will Be Shown at the Library This Sunday!

This Sunday the Library will be presenting The McConnell Story.
Arrive at 1:30, a half hour before the movie starts, to learn a bit of the back story behind this remarkable Dover native. The movie will begin at 2 pm.

As the alarm wails, Joe McConnell's squad of Sabre pilots are airborne in seconds. The mission: keep enemy planes away from helicopters evacuating wounded infantrymen. The destination: the deadly corridor called MIG Alley.

Alan Ladd and June Allyson star as real-life jet aviation pioneer Capt. Joseph McConnell Jr. and his devoted wife Butch. And James Whitmore is the commander who first recognizes McConnell's prowess as a "tiger of the sky." In war, McConnell became America's first triple jet ace, downing 16 enemy planes. In peace, he braved the unknown as a test pilot in the jet era's infancy.

Back to School Books

Its almost that time of year when the air gets crisper, leaves start changing colors, and kids go back to school. Sometimes I miss that feeling of fresh new start, new teacher, new clothes, and a clean new notebook or binder. if you miss those days, relive your memories by reading these novels that take place at boarding schools. These books are much more suspenseful than your average day at school. Prepare to be kept up at night.
