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!

Old Rockland County in Autumn and Oral Histories at the New City Library

In September we collected 13 oral histories from long time residents of Rockland County thanks in part to a grant from the Library Association of Rockland County.  We now have a web page devoted to our new oral histories where you can start to listen to some clips.  Check it out at http://newcitylibrary.org/oralhistory.  For October we are highlighting a story from Tom Schassler of Stony Point.  Tom visited me my first day working in the Rockland Room to do some research for one of his historic preservation efforts up in Stony Point.  This story from Tom is a perfect one for Autumn.
