As the Library leaps into the blogosphere, we’d like to take a minute to thank our customers for their continued patronage. So often, you send us notes and quick emails telling us how much you appreciate the services that we offer. We hope we remember to tell you just how much we also appreciate the contributions that you make to the library.
Have you ever wondered what the library staff reads? After all, we move hundreds of books every day and are the first to touch all of those wondrous new books. Do we select a book by reading the blurb on the back of the book? Do we receive inside information on great reads?
What a boost to come to work and be greeted by such beautiful roses and lilies. Our library has experienced a landscape renewal in the past couple of years that has added more color to our environment. Though the roses are simply beautiful, we have yet to identify the variety pictured here. Perhaps you can tell us what they are?
If you are looking for a congenial group to discuss interesting books, you are welcome to join our book club. We meet the second Tuesday of each month at 10:00 am. Our selection for July is Bridge of Sighs by Richard Russo*.
Has this ever happened to you? You walk in to the library, see all the rows of books and you are overwhelmed by the amount of books you will have to look through to find the one you want. Here’s some information that might just help you narrow down your choices very quickly. I recently read an article in Public Libraries magazine by Liz McLaine. She shared something that caught my eye.
Are your children nagging you to go see a movie this summer? One that all of their friends have seen and are raving about? Many popular movies are based on books. A great experiment and eye opener to try with your children is to read the book aloud or have them read the book before seeing the movie. Your children will appreciate the book and love reading more than ever before!
