New DVD Releases for April 2nd

The Bible - The Epic Miniseries (2 Week DVD)

Hemingway and Gellhorn (Nicole Kidman)

Real Men Write Romance (Really!)

Romance fans tend to be voracious readers, always on the lookout for a new author to follow (or an author who's new to them).  With that in mind, I'd like to spotlight a few great romance writers you might not have picked up before.  Let me introduce you to Leigh Greenwood, Dale Cramer, Jessica Stirling, Naomi Neale, M. L. Buchman, Lee Carroll, Z. A. Maxfield, and Ilona Andrews. 

On the surface they don't seem to have a lot in common, aside from writing great romance.  Some are award winners, while others have seen more modest success.  They're all over the map, as far as subgenres go: western, inspirational, historical, chick lit, suspense, gothic, LGBT, and urban fantasy/ paranormal.  Oh... there is one other detail they all have in common: behind every one of their keyboards sits a male author.

With a little help from our Friends....

Have you noticed those new blue and white road signs directing drivers to the New City Library?  Thanks to the FRIENDS of the New City Library, annual membership dues offset the cost of purchasing the seven directional signs placed at key intersections throughout Clarkstown.

Please help FRIENDS with other projects on the Library's wish list and join us today or renew your membership.  Applications are available at the Library and there are several membership levels to select from.

"My child really enjoyed this book......

....can you tell me the title of a similar one?"  This is a common question asked of us here in the children's department.  If nothing pops into our heads right away, we often check in our database, NoveList K-8 Plus.  This database can be accessed from your home computer or here at the library.  Sounds great!, you say -- but how does it work?  Well, here is a brief introduction to this wonderful resource.  First go to our webpage.  Next, click on the "research" tab at the top.  When the drop-down menu appears, click on "databases".  On the next page there are more tabs!  Pick "literature" and it will bring you to the list of databases we have for that.  There you will see NoveList K-8 Plus.

Better Than Google

Gale Virtual Reference Library is listed on the first page of our database offerings.  The description says that it is "a general interest database that integrates a variety of sources in one easy-to-use interface."  This rather bland explanation does not indicate the wonderful sources of information it contains.In fact, Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL), was voted “Best Overall Database” by the readers of Library Journal magazine. GVRL’s user-friendly features include an interface that is available in more than 30 languages, ReadSpeaker technology (text-to-speech functionality) for 19 languages, article translation capability, a multi-page viewer for a book-like experience, and the ability to download articles as PDFs to ereaders or MP3 players.
