Have Book Will Travel

If you've been in the library this summer you have probably noticed the travel theme for our Summer Reading programs. Along the Round Wall display are Adult fiction and non-fiction books from every continent. Help yourself to a good exotic summer read!

What are Your Holiday Wishes?

What are your wishes for the holidays this year? A particular gift from Santa? The safe return of family members? The healthy birth of a grandchild? A job for your husband?

We invite you to write your wish upon a star at the first floor Children's or Adult Reference desk, then help fill the sky on the round wall display area with your wonderful wish. Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends this weekend, and joyous anticipation to everyone else for your particular holiday celebration.

Remembering

This week we remember again the tragic events of September 11, 2001. The book display we created last year featured books documenting the assaults on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the failed assault on the Capitol Building by hijacked United Airlines Flight 93. The books didn’t check out. They had checked out the previous year but last year they didn't move. That set me to wondering if we had entered a new phase in our collective grieving.
