Snow/Ice Closing

Due to employee and patron safety concerns in the weather predicted for today, we will be closed.  If the storm does not pan out as predicted there is a possibility that we may open later in the day, but only if driving conditions are safe.  If we do open later we will announce that on our website, Facebook, Twitter, and this blog.

In the meantime, stay home, relax, take a nap, and read a good book if possible!

Cookbook Club

We are planning to start a cookbook club this spring!  What is a cookbook club, you ask?  Each month we will choose a cookbook from our collection to feature.  Club participants will each choose one recipe to try from that cookbook (it will be available at the desk) and bring in enough tasting portions to our monthly meeting for each cook to sample. 

We will be featuring all sorts of cooking styles and tastes, including vegan, gluten-free, Mediterranian, seasonal, heart-healthy, desserts, salads, etc. As you choose your recipe you will mark the page and title with a post-it note and we will provide a list of all of the tested recipes, along with the title and author of the cookbook, for all of the participants at each meeting.  If you like what you taste you may just want to try more new recipes yourself!

We will be posting information on our website as our plans develop. Please email epearce@libraryconnection.info if you are interested in participating or need more information.  We are looking at the possibility of Monday evenings to meet, but we haven't finalized a time yet.  We are looking forward to this exciting new club and hope that many of you will, too!

Winston the Bookworm

One of our goals as a nonprofit is to figure out new ways to augment our budget so we can provide MORE services and MORE materials for our collection.  Many of our fundraisers are small (like our tote bags and bookmarks), while others (like our book sales, Bricks of Remembrance, and Gift of Reading) have a significant impact on funding for our collections and programs. We appreciate everyone who supports our library!

Speaking of small fundraisers, everyone has those moments when they need to note an appointment or a phone number or add something to their grocery list.  How many times have you had to search for a pen and a piece of paper to make a quick note?  Winston the Bookworm can help!  These little notepads (note the size comparison to the library books in the background of the picture above) fit easily into a jacket pocket or purse.  They sell for $3.50 and any proceeds will be used to add to our movie collection.  Next time you're at the library, take a few minutes to meet Winston and, maybe, take him home.  These little sets are great for both adults and kids!

BookBuggs...A Different Kind of Book Club

Did you know that for the past 9 years a group of avid readers have been meeting on the first Tuesday of every month to share reviews and opinions about what they've been reading?  BookBuggs is a drop-in book club that meets at 6:30 pm.    There are no assigned books, no commitment, and no judgement, just sharing and socializing with other people who love to read.  Consider stopping in for BookBuggs.  Bring a notebook and pen to record titles for future reading and be prepared to eat cookies and make new friends!
