From Goodreads

The School for Good and Evil
 
Soman Chainani, Iacopo Bruno (Illustrator)


"The first kidnappings happened two hundred years before. Some years it was two boys taken, some years two girls, sometimes one of each. But if at first the choices seemed random, soon the pattern became clear. One was always beautiful and good, the child every parent wanted as their own. The other was homely and odd, an outcast from birth. An opposing pair, plucked from youth and spirited away.

This year, best friends Sophie and Agatha are about to discover where all the lost children go: the fabled School for Good & Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy tale heroes and villains. As the most beautiful girl in Gavaldon, Sophie has dreamed of being kidnapped into an enchanted world her whole life. With her pink dresses, glass slippers, and devotion to good deeds, she knows she’ll earn top marks at the School for Good and graduate a storybook princess. Meanwhile Agatha, with her shapeless black frocks, wicked pet cat, and dislike of nearly everyone, seems a natural fit for the School for Evil.

But when the two girls are swept into the Endless Woods, they find their fortunes reversed—Sophie’s dumped in the School for Evil to take Uglification, Death Curses, and Henchmen Training, while Agatha finds herself in the School For Good, thrust amongst handsome princes and fair maidens for classes in Princess Etiquette and Animal Communication.. But what if the mistake is actually the first clue to discovering who Sophie and Agatha really are…?"

About the library

The Friends of the Library Garden Plaza entrance, located on 2nd Avenue West, is ground level and is accessible to the elevator.  The beautifully landscaped plaza features inscribed brick pavers, cast stone benched and trees purchased by donors.  

In the fall of 2009, the house and lot across the street to the north from the Library were purchased by the Library Foundation.  A new and larger parking lot will be constructed on this plot.  Demolition of the existing house was done in April 2010.  The construction bid was awarded to Tooz Construction and was completed in late October 2010.  Landscaping of the surrounding areas was begun in the fall of 2011 and was completed in the spring of 2012.
