Hernando Health Department extends hours


Book club to discuss 'Double Bind'

The Spring Hill Book Discussion Group will meet at 10 a.m. July 22 at the Spring Hill Branch/Harold G. Zopp Memorial Library, 9220 Spring Hill Drive.

The book to be discussed is The Double Bind, by Christopher Bohjalian. It's a literary thriller that was on the New York Times' Bestsellers List in 2007 and is about a young woman who works at a homeless shelter, struggling to understand the mysterious photographs taken by a recently deceased resident, photos that suggest he might be tied to her own past.

A limited number of copies of the book are available at the library. For information, call Jeanne Del Vecchio at (352) 754-4866.


See 'Martian Child' at library showing

The 2007 film Martian Child will be shown at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the East Hernando Branch Library, 6457 Windmere Road, east of Brooksville.

The movie, rated PG, is about a science fiction writer, recently widowed, who considers whether to adopt a hyperimaginative 6-year-old abandoned and socially-rejected boy who says he's really from Mars. The movie stars John Cusack, Amanda Peet and Joan Cusack.

There is no cost to attend. Light refreshments will be served. For information, call (352) 540-6391.
