Nonfiction Chronicles: Sweet Transformations

Ever wonder what it would be like to chuck your job, pull up your roots, and follow your passion? For most of us, that’s not an option. But you can always experience it vicariously by reading biographies. In Confections of a Closet Master Baker, Gesine Bullock-Prado gives up the fast-paced, stressed-out world of Hollywood (she’s Sandra Bullock’s sister) for the opportunity to pursue her dream of opening a small, country bakery/café in Montpelier, Vermont.   Better not read this one if you’re on a diet, though; every chapter ends with a recipe for a delicious, mouth-watering pastry sure to send you to the kitchen hunting for the butter and sugar.

New DVD Releases For September 15th

We have three new releases for Tuesday the 15th.  They are:

X-Men Origins - Wolverine

Next Day Air

No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency: Complete First Season

Mystery Monday

Mystery Fans Rejoice!  We have moved our collection upstairs out of our beloved but cramped Mystery Room to more spacious quarters.  We have taken over the space formerly occupied by Large Print and what a great space it is!  Luxuriate in our comfortable wingback chairs--Spread out your books and papers on the table.  Because we didn't have to use the top and bottom shelves, no more stretching or bending to reach the books.  We have more shelf space for mysteries, so our collection can continue to grow.

New Speculative Fiction for September 2009

Take Note:  Speculative Fiction has MOVED!  All Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror titles are now shelved on the Lower Level at the far end, past the 700's (where the YA Fiction and Graphic Novels used to be).

SPECULATIVE FICTION, OR, "WHO MOVED MY CTHULHU?"

If you're an avid reader of the fantasy or horror genres, you might have wondered (or worried) when your favorite authors mysteriously disappeared from the library's Adult Fiction shelves last month.  Your apprehension likely increased when the science fiction corner upstairs vanished.  If you've visited our library recently, you may have gotten a look at where these books have moved.  If not, let me be the first to welcome you to our new area!
