THE FLOWER OF CHIVALRY: MEDIEVAL ROMANCES

Codex Manesse, Bergner von HorheimIf a lover of romantic historical fiction were to search our catalog for "medieval romance," she might get a bit confused.  You see, she'd find medieval romance... but she'd also find medieval romance!  (See what I mean by "confused"?)  The same term-- "medieval romance"-- gets used to describe two very different bodies of literature.  

NEW SERVICES - SUCCESS!

We are amazed and gratified at the resounding acceptance of our new circulation desk and new hold system, the self- checkout machines and in-house book return.  Staff has been available to introduce the new features and will continue to work with you.  Now that you've gotten the hang of checking out there are other features on the self checkout, including renewing and the ability to review your account.  The next time you visit take note of the video display that was installed today. 

Library usage is increasing and staff members are busier than ever working to meet your needs.  Thanks for your patience and support.

Teens --- Come and Play Xbox360

In our Teen Room, we have an Xbox360 and two controls.  Just bring your library card with you and check out an Xbox360 game downstairs in our AV department.  Then take your card to the Adult Reference Desk and the librarian will unlock our game cabinet. You have an hour of play time. Since we have two controls, depending on the game, you can play with a friend.  When you are done, go to Adult Reference to pick up your library card and return the game to the AV department. The game console is limited to teens and one friend or family member.

HAULING OUT THE BIG GUNS: HARD-HITTING SF

I received a request in last month's comments for some reading suggestions in military science fiction.  As I was putting a list together, I thought it likely that more than one person would be interested in this subgenre, and that it would be a shame to bury my answer in the depths of the archives.  So without further ado, here's the question and my response....

Coming in July

Burke, James Lee. The Glass Rainbow: A Dave Robicheaux Novel.

James Lee Burke's eagerly awaited new novel finds Detective Dave Robicheaux back in New Iberia, Louisiana, and embroiled in the most harrowing and dangerous case of his career. Seven young women in neighboring Jefferson Davis Parish have been brutally murdered.

Byers, Michael. Percival's Planet.

A novel of ambition and obsession centered on the race to discover Pluto in 1930, pitting an untrained Kansas farm boy against the greatest minds of Harvard at the run-down Lowell Observatory in Arizona. 

Carcaterra, Lorenzo. Midnight Angels.

In the secret passageways of one of the world's most majestic cities, an American woman must risk everything to keep the long-lost work of a Renaissance master from falling into the hands of thieves.

Cassella, Carol Wiley. Healer.
