From The Librarian's Shelf...
Wednesday, January 19, 2011 • Posted January 19, 2011

Thank you for this opportunity to become a part of such a vital service to the community, and what a privilege to have such a beautiful facility! I've had a great first week - meeting some amazing "regulars" and getting to know and work with Nancy Scholibo and Mary Jo Cockrell. We also have two volunteers extraordinaire, Bob Laury and Mary Scholibo. Be sure to thank them for keeping the library running so smoothly during the transition period.

If you haven't been to the library lately, you may not realize what you've been missing. These cold wintry days make the Cup and Chaucer especially inviting. Come on in and enjoy a hot cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa. Curl up in a comfy chair and browse through our new books or the magazines and newspapers. I'll look forward to seeing you!

NEW ARRIVALS (Quotes are from the publisher's summary).

The Brave by Nicholas Evans

"From the celebrated author of The Horse Whisperer: an epic story of one man's struggle to save his son - and himself - from the mistakes of the past."

Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King

"I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger..." writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up"1922," the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King."

Colonel Roosevelt by Edmund Morris

"This biography by Edmund Morris, the Pulitzer Prize-and National Book Award-winning author of The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt and Theodore Rex, is itself the completion of a trilogy sure to stand as definitive... it recounts the last decade of perhaps the most amazing life in American history."
