Children's Area Changes 1.1

Much like Apple does with Iphones and computers, we’ll be sending you updates as we continue to make the upgrades/changes to the Children’s Area.  The most recent and recognizable one is that we have moved all the books previously shelved in the “series” section into Fiction.  The reason: there are so many fabulous books that are part of a “series” that we simply don’t have the room to highlight all of them in that area.  As of today, all series books are now shelved by author. We have pulled a few of the more popular series and they are located on one side of the 2x2 pyramid shelf near the center of the children’s area.  On this shelf, you will find favorites such as Disney, Star Wars and Superheroes. On the shelves at the front of the fiction section (the former series shelves) you will find our Spanish collection, which consists of biographies, fiction, non-fiction and picture books as well as a small selection of Chinese language books. As always, please ask at the reference desk if you need help finding or requesting a book.  More great changes ahead…we’ll keep you posted! 

Starting Over

I am a firm believer that book series should have a definite beginning and end, and not just keep continuing on because they are selling well.  All of you series readers know what I mean -- sometimes no matter how much you love the characters, the story has come to a natural conclusion.  How do authors bring that about in a way that will satisfy their fans and then try something new?

Awesomeness Detected- TV Edition

 I decided to really change it up a bit and make a list of my favorite detectives. Now, I jotted down quite a few, but then I realized that I was missing even more. So, I asked around, and my little list 'o detectives quickly grew into a large (or, as I like to say, GINORMOUS!) list. Then I realized that I would need to break it down into sub-categories. Now, I will say that this is in no way the end-all/be-all of TV detective lists, but merely my opinion of who really stood out and made us tune in each week for more. So, without further delay, here's my list of favorite TV detectives!
