Here are some of the new books we have received recently. Some were purchased, but most donated. Thanks to everyone, community members, other libraries, and our budget, we keep growing. The collection will soon reach 7000 items. It's always worth dropping by to see what we have.
Reminder: The online catalog, which comes through LibraryThing, is always available. You can sort materials out into 'collections' to zero in on what you are most interested in. You can now look separately at
All Adult Books
Adult Culture Books
All Children's Books
Children's Culture Books
Anytime you go to the catalog, you can pull out one of these five separate views by clicking on the pulldown that says "All Collections" or "Your Library"
and choosing the one you want.
Purely for the pleasure of admiring them en masse, any time you have one of these lists of titles, try clicking on the "Covers" button. You end up with something wonderful, like this:
Here is a trailer for a video project, The Strong People: The Return of a River, The Rebirth of a People, by Matt Lowe and Heather Hoglund. They are raising money for the film through Kickstarter. Hope they are successful: it looks like it is going to be good. :-)
