Not Just for Teens

Recently teen books have become very popular with adult readers.  Many people enjoyed reading The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne.  As the Teen Librarian, most of my personal reading is in the teen book area.  I still read an occasional “Adult “ title and enjoy a wide range of adult authors.  However, I find that many “teen” books are fun and exciting to read with complex ideas, plots and relevancy.   The following are some of my personal favorites.

What's Cooking?: Popovers for the Holidays

The holiday season has begun and I look forward to creating my holiday menus.  I would love to bake some artisanal bread for the holidays but it involves a lot of prep work, kneading and waiting for the bread to rise.  A wonderful alternative is the unassuming yet spectacular-looking popover.  It is delicate and crusty, so delicious when slathered with butter, cream or jam.  It surpasses that crusty loaf or those dinner rolls with its versatility for the upcoming holidays as well as for afternoon tea, breakfast or dinner. Despite its elegant appearance, they are fun to eat and kids love them!

Digital Content now searchable within library catalog

Search results in the Enterprise library catalog now include digital content that can be accessed directly from the Overdrive website with one click.  Ebooks, digital audiobooks, and streaming movies can be checked out (or placed on hold) without having to make a separate visit to the Digital Download Center found under the "Find an Item" tab on our homepage.

Digital content will be clearly identified as "Electronic Format" on the results page.

Another new feature is the "Buy It Now" button.  This allows you to purchase titles if you so desire - a portion of the sale will go to benefit  our library system.  Something to think about if you have to read (or listen to or watch) it right now!
