Baseball Season is Ending

Baseball season is coming to an end. This is sad but true. And, as an Astros fan I am left with regrets, wondering what might have been if maybe the Astros had gotten one more pitcher or if one game had gone differently. Further, I am left to reminisce about the wonderful seasons of 2004 and 2005 when I got to watch the Astros win their first playoff series and go to their first World Series.

Do You Need a License to Drive One of Those Book Carts?

The answer to the above question is ‘no’, but turn signals and a horn probably wouldn’t be a bad idea. I say this because if you’ve been to our library, you’ve probably seen the staff pushing around carts with library materials. These carts come in many shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common: they don’t always go where we want them to! (Think of the grocery cart with the wobbly wheel!) So while unruly carts have yet to be a problem, please be safe: look both ways when exiting an aisle (holding hands with an adult is optional.)

Flyers, Pamphlets, and Bookmarks – Oh My!

Hello, everyone!  As my first blog I would like to say hello and to remind you all that those calendars, flyers, and bookmarks at the front desk and at Information are not there to be in your way, they are actually there to help and inform you!  They tell you how to use the library, where to find things, and about all the great programs we have at Northwest.  So what are you waiting for?  Peruse the pamphlets, have a handout, and borrow a bookmark…they’re yours for the taking!  And remember; always feel free to tell us what you think of them.
