Read of the Week: As You Wish

If I had to make a list of the most influential movies of my childhood, The Princess Bride would be at least top three, if not number one. It had everything – to quote the posters: “Heroes. Giants. Villains. Wizards. True Love. Not just your basic, average, everyday, ordinary, run-of-the-mill, ho-hum fairy tale.” My sister… Read More

Blind Date with a Book

If you're looking for something different to do this Valentine's Day, why not head over to the Library and take part in the Blind Date with a Book event that runs through the month of February.  This is our third year in what has become a patron favorite event! Here's how it works: Each year our savvy… Read More

Movie Night: Dystopia Beyond Hunger Games

I loved the Hunger Games and Divergent movies and books, but there’s so much more to the dystopian genre! Fellow librarian Sarah Burkard has already covered some of the great dystopian fiction books that we have in the collection, but there are some awesome movies that also fall under the auspices of dystopia! The next… Read More

Read of the Week: Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki

Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and his Years of Pilgrimage is the latest novel by Haruki Murakami. In Japan, when his books are released, fans wait for hours in line to get a copy. I had not read any of Murakami’s novels before, and as soon as I started to read it I understood why he is… Read More

Read of the Week: Station Eleven

I started reading Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven right at the height of the Ebola scare, which given its premise, probably wasn’t the best timing, but I quickly became immersed in this wonderful, multi-layered novel. Hollywood actor Arthur Leander is performing in King Lear one snowy night when he suddenly has a heart attack… Read More

Best Nonfiction Books of 2014

I’ll admit that I’ve spent the majority of my year reading fiction books.  As you saw in Melissa’s list, there were so many great fiction books that came out this year that it was easy to get swept away in stories of other faraway lands, families more dysfunctional than your own, and easy to devour… Read More

Best Fiction Books of 2014

The end of every year heralds the inevitable arrival of the “Best Of” book lists. From the New York Times, to NPR, the Washington Post, Huffington Post, Amazon and countless others, everybody has list. Usually they just serve as a reminder of how many books I didn’t get to this year and cause my reading… Read More

Read of the Week: The Skies Belong to Us

When was the last time you were on a plane that was hijacked?  Luckily, most of us can answer “never”.  The airline industry has instituted security standards that make it almost impossible for hijackers to be successful.  What many people may not realize is that hijacking planes in the late 1960s and 1970s was a… Read More
