Let's Get Ready to Yoga!

Are you one of the many parents who have children that watch hours of t.v., play non stop on their video games, or zone out like zombies in front of the computer? Well Northwest library is here to help. Starting Saturday January 5, 2013 we will be hosting the iPad Kid's Yoga Journey. Get in shape with your child in mind and body.

Library Decorations

Well it's a new year and although the holiday decorations and artworks are about to come down, new posters and displays will be replacing them throughout the next couple of months.  All of the submissions for the public bulletin board were awesome!  Be on the lookout for upcoming holiday coloring pages.  If you have any recommendations or creative ideas you would like to share, please let us know.  We are looking forward to putting up more patron-created art in the near future. 

January is National Soup Month!

 

Did you know that January is National Soup Month?  Makes sense, right?  January is the first full month of Winter, and aside from cold soups like gazpacho, soups are traditionally craved, crafted, and consumed during the colder months of the year.

If you want to celebrate National Soup Month by trying your hand at making soup, HCPL has got you covered!  You may know that the Dewey Decimal number for general cookbooks is 641.5, but did you know that soup cookbooks have their very own Dewey number?  It's 641.813.  Of course, many general cookbooks have soup recipes in them, but if you're looking exclusively for soup recipes, you should start at 641.813.  Here are a few of the titles you'll find there:

Cold outside Warm indoors

The temperatures are dropping outside while we try to keep warm indoors.  Why not warm up with some “cold titles”? We have a selection of books with cool or cold titles.  Put them on hold now before these titles become hot!
