Maybe, when it has no real paper pages. If so, MCPL has thousands and thousands of non-book books. You can have books on tape, books on CDs, electronic downloadable audiobooks; then, you can listen to them on your computer or MP3/IPOD player, downloadable e-books that you can read on your computer, and of course, books made into movies. All of these formats are available at all branches, and are part of our system in order to serve the widest possible audience and user base for our services.
Aristotle, thank you for agreeing to be interviewed. Your popping corn will be delivered to your cave shortly. I promise it is most delicious. First question, I went to Purdue, I am a Boilermaker, what school did you go to?
Boilermaker? Nevermind. Observation is my school and I go to school every day.
I have heard that you were the last person to acquire all knowledge.
Yes. I have swam the deepest seas the sciences have to offer.
Hello Mid-Continent Public Library North Independence Branch, this is Jean. Sorry we are unable to accept your call at this time.
You will completely understand what we have been doing when you walk through the doors of our new home. It is beautiful, and it is your library. We will be thrilled to see you again. Until then, hang your stockings and say your prayers, 'cause Santa Claus comes tonight. (He's bringing you a new library!)
It happens at least once a month. Things will be quiet and average here at the library and then wham! A book shows up either fresh from Headquarters, comes in for a hold, or is returned – or suddenly, it’s as if a dam has burst. I’m not talking about a new bestseller or even a movie – I’m talking about picture books.
I have just discovered a genre of books that I never thought I'd like - the thriller. I've always told myself that I was not a mystery reader, but after reading a couple of these impossible-to-put down stories, I'm hooked!
The best thing about discovering a new genre is that there are so many new authors to explore. So far, I've enjoyed reading selections by John Sandford, Linwood Barclay, Cody McFadyen, Harlan Coben, Tom Rob Smith, and Lee Child.
"With this life, I give you the gifts of nobility, certainty, and faith so that you can lead the Clan in the ways of the Warrior Code." Bluestar mews. Stepping back, she and the other cats of Starclan called out, "Firestar! Firestar! Firestar!"
As a parent, you can never be too careful what you read, especially to your children. You read them a charming little picture book thinking that your child might find the book funny or memorable, and then before you quite realize it's happening, the book is speaking to your very own soul.
