  • Book buzz: selections from a non-fiction lunchbox

    As daily news of violence unfolds, the question of what we're doing and what we leave behind seems to loom ever larger. I'm hungry for order, logic, beauty, looking for understanding. Poet Mary Ruefle writes, "Someone reading a book is a sign of order in the world." Exploring other voices and wanting to stay based in reality, my own reading choices have veered to non-fiction. My reading lunchbox this summer has a mixed bag of author goodies selected, arranged and presented like a book bento.

  • Extraordinary light

    Summer once ignited thoughts of lazy beach days, great adventures, and endless pockets of time. As a parent, summer has become an extension of the ever crowded school calendar. Chiseling in the breaks becomes part of the hectic job description of a working mom (an oxymoron, I know). Recently, one of those breaks came in the form of a walk in the woods on the grounds behind my daughter's day camp.

  • The librarian and the lever

    We are sometimes asked why we do not have a particular item in the collection, or, when every copy in the collection is checked out to other cardholders, why we do not have enough copies to always have one available. This can be a difficult question to answer, because every library deals somewhat differently with the constraints on the funds it can use to acquire new material, the space it can use to display and store its collection, and its ability to coordinate the cataloging and processing of new additions.

  • First floor changes

    Like everyone else at the library I'm excited by the upcoming renovation of the second floor. The floor was recently closed and construction will begin shortly. The rest of the library will remain open as much as possible during the renovation and we have put a lot of thought into how to incorporate many of our second floor services and collections onto the first floor. Our goal is to give you the excellent service you expect.
