Are you looking for ways to get inspired to do your share in taking care of the environment? Come to the library and browse the periodicals section.

School is back in session, and that means another round of research papers to get started on, whether it’s high school or college.

Due to the many titles and great variety, going to each branch in search for a magazine that interests you can take a lot of time.

Two plastic pink flamingos ridden by scantily clad Barbie dolls! I see this in a storefront window on my way to work every day. After 17 years of this bizarre sight, it makes a person flamingo crazy. So tacky, yet so cool.
Those famous pink wonders were the brainchild of designer Don Featherstone back in 1957. The Union Products company manufactured them until 2006. Another company purchased the copyright and the molds, so never fear - you can make your own flamingo display. Just try to top the Barbie display - it won't be easy!
