The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion!

An international sensation, this hilarious, feel-good novel is narrated by an oddly charming and socially challenged genetics professor on an unusual quest: to find out if he is capable of true love.

Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. He is a man who can count all his friends on the fingers of one hand, whose lifelong difficulty with social rituals has convinced him that he is simply not wired for romance. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a “wonderful” husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and he embarks upon The Wife Project. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which he approaches all things, Don sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical—most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver.

Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent—and on a quest of her own. She is looking for her biological father, a search that a certain DNA expert might be able to help her with. Don’s Wife Project takes a back burner to the Father Project and an unlikely relationship blooms, forcing the scientifically minded geneticist to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie—and the realization that love is not always what looks good on paper.


We are excited to announce the addition of our “Library of Things”!

Thanks to a grant from the Foundation for Southern Tier Libraries we were able to purchase a variety of items that can be checked out just like other library materials such as books and DVD’s.  We surveyed the Fillmore community this past summer asking residents what they would like to see in this new collection. Our goal was to provide items for community members to try before purchasing, or to borrow things they may need occasionally and might not want to invest in.  These “things” are available for checkout with a Fillmore library card in good standing for those 18 and over:
