We will add it to our ever-changing and ever-growing tree display. By Thanksgiving, the tree will be in full bloom with our collective gratitude.

It's a Bird! It's a Plane! No it's...MY LIBRARIAN!?

Have you ever wanted to skydive? This Thursday, Northwest Branch Librarian Deborah Sica and circulation assistant Connie Villa will do just that! Now you might be asking yourself “who would want to jump out of a perfectly good plane?” Well, if you’ve ever seen Deborah arrive for work on her motorcycle then you already know she’s not exactly your grandmother’s librarian. As for Connie, she has worked previously as an airline attendant for 12 years, so this probably isn’t her first inclination to want to jump. Both women are incredibly fearless, and for this we applaud them (and wish them lots of luck). Check back soon for actual photos.

The Looooooooongest Word in the Dictionary - Reference Question Trivia


On Monday, I was asked the greatest Reference question! What is the longest word in the dictionary? While we know there are several dictionaries, the granddaddy of them all is the Oxford English Dictionary. According to that source, the loooongest word is Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis! Now... what is in the world does that mean and is it even a real word? Check your local library resources or visit us at the Reference Desk to find out!
