Felicitations for a Focused Fourth!--or the Alternative

When the Fourth of July holiday falls in the middle of the week we have neither the lead-time to prepare nor the down-time to recover from our over-indulgences. So either we have to be very focused or, alternately, we can stretch it out and declare a personal month of patriotic celebration.

We at the library can help you with the latter.

Our famous ‘round wall’ has a new display simply called ‘American History’. It’s full of lovely great biographies of the founding fathers and histories of the American Revolution. When you get through those, there are also Civil War, frontier history, and Texas revolutionary histories. You could celebrate 1750 to 1865 all through July.

You can also read David McCullough’s...

Don't Forget!

Don't forget, the Maud Marks Library will be closed on Monday for the 4th of July holiday.  Don't worry though, just because the building is closed doesn't mean the library is!  Do you need to renew a book or pay a fine?  Click here to go to our online catalog!  Do you need a book?  Find one in our digital media catalog!  Do you need a magazine article or to fix your car?  Check out our databases.  Want a book suggestion?  Read one of our book blogs.&nbs...

Happy Fourth of July!

The 4th of July is the perfect setting for a fun filled day of food, family and friends. If weather permits, I will be picnicking in the park this weekend.  

Please feel free to share a favorite cookbook or recipe below.  I am always looking for new recipes and would love any suggestions you may have.
