Our first episode we are answering the burning questions. Is it possible to rewrite Jane Austen? Can you turn an edgy memoir into a network sitcom? And just what is so great about Hemingway, anyway?

Tired of being 134th on the hold list for a hot new title? Check out the Lucky Day collection!

Shelved in front of the Circulation Desk, Lucky Day is a special collection of popular new books and dvds that are available on a first-come, first served basis. If you find what you want, you can borrow it immediately. Like similar items in the regular collection, you can keep books for 3 weeks and movies for 1 week. Lucky Day items cannot, however, be renewed.

Once you find that longed-for title, please remember to cancel your hold, unless you want to enjoy it again when the hold is filled. Thanks.

wearing that to schoolIt’s almost back to school — some for the first time. A new book to share with your little people just starting school is You’re Wearing That to School?! by Lynn Plourde and Illustrated by Sue Cornelison. Penelope the hippo is so excited to start school but her best friend Tiny the mouse tries to temper her enthusiasm, giving her suggestions for how to fit in on her first day. Luckily she doesn’t listen to him and finds her uniqueness, rather than being just like everyone else, is what makes friends. The last page includes tips to make children more comfortable on the first day of school.
