    The power of play

    On any given day squeals of laughter can be heard coming from the newly refurbished “play” room in the Youth Services department. This magical room is one of the first stops that parents and caregivers make when bringing little ones to the library. Inside you’ll find a kitchen, interactive wall displays and even a yellow submarine.

  • And the winner is

    And the winner is

    We hosted salsa royalty at the Second Annual Salsa Slam on Aug. 15 and a grateful, salsa-loving public joined us and voted with their palettes. While salsa dancers stepped lively on Hinds Plaza, the salsa tasters sampled the wares of ten local restaurateurs or commercial food establishments and filled out ballots. Judges sat sagely in the back of the room scrutinizing each morsel.

  • Bookmarks: one is never enough

    Coming up with a blog post is a bit like planning a dinner party. A week or so before, I start thinking about the theme, developing and discarding a variety of ideas, always wondering what will have appeal. As with most things, when I am thinking about something else, the solution becomes apparent.

  • Bookends


    In the past year we have been shifting many collections at the library and all this movement made me ponder something that keeps the collections still: bookends. They are so utilitarian and unassuming that you may be surprised to hear there are over 4,100 bookends working silently day and night at the library to stop everything from falling over.
