Can't something be easier???

Well, we're trying! You may have noticed that most children's programs requiring registration start the sign-up on the 1st or 15th, rather than scattered throughout the month. Easier to remember! Beneath the program description on our children's events page is a 'register' button. Just click on that and fill out the requested information. You will need your library card number. Once you are registered on-line, you will get a reminder email a day or two prior to the program! Of course, you can also phone or drop by the children's desk any time and we'll walk you through it. Can't plan too far in advance? Then take note of our many drop-in programs and stop by for one. Please be mindful of any age requirements and be sure to have your library card handy.  See you soon!

Better Than Google

Fake! Fake! Fake!  What am I talking about? On-line reviews, of course, and they are more common than you might think.  Researchers estimate that 10% to 30% of reviews posted on line are absolutely fake.  Where do you find these fake reviews? You find them on Yelp and Trip Advisor, Chow Hound, Amazon, wherever people can post an anonymous review.  Who is doing it?  Business owners who want to counteract bad reviews, or who want to post a bad review about a rival.  People may be posting a review of a place they've never stayed at, or eaten at to be malicious, vengeful, or they just have too much time on their hands.  Whatever the reason is, they are very hard to catch. Companies such as Amazon do their best to weed out the most obvious fake reviews, but they still slip in.

What's Cooking?: Flavors of Fall: The Pumpkin

pumpkin soup

It is the peak of autumn as we embrace the stunning flora of leaves changing from summer green to brilliant orange, red, and golden colors. Mimicking the colors of fall as well is the season of harvesting pumpkins, winter squash and gourds.  Squash comes in all varieties of shapes, sizes, and colors but one of the most popular squash is the beloved pumpkin. These bright orange spheres are iconic spectacles beckoning to be picked from the patch for the holidays.  Pumpkin can be used in so many ways.
