What's Cooking?: Thanksgiving

The autumn holidays are here!  Halloween has passed and Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  It is a special time to gather with families and friends around the table.  With the blustery fall weather, there is nothing like the comforting aroma of a steamy pot of soup or stew braising on the stove, or meat and root vegetables roasting in the oven.  I can still remember my dad's pork & shrimp wonton dumplings in a hot clear broth and how it took the chill out from the cold.  Soups are great comfort foods.

Short term pain...long term gain

New Steps at the New City Library If you have been to the library in recent weeks you know we are getting new front steps. The Library needed to close its front doors in order to complete this project in a timely manner.    Both doors are now open.   The steps will remain unavailable until the handrails are installed.  Please use the ramp and avoid spills by NOT walking through the flower bed. 

Also in laying new sidewalk, the drive through bookdrops were closed over the past weekend.  NO FINES WERE CHARGED on materials returned through Monday morning.  The library is sorry for the inconvenience and hopes you appreciate our beutiful new entrance.

Book Review: Songs For The Butcher's Daughter

Reviewed by Arlene Sandner, Librarian

Songs For The Butcher's Daughter

Summary:
A memoir of an immigrant poet who was born into a world of chaos and poverty.
His life story is translated from Yiddish, and re-told by a young Catholic
former student of religion and language who found temporary work in a
warehouse of Yiddish books.

Review:
This tightly woven, fast paced story will take you to the depths of the
Russian immigrant experience of the early part of the 20th century. The
author is a winner of The National Jewish Book Award.

HISTORICAL STUMPER

The library's exhibit cases are filled with military patches from WWI and WWII on loan from the collector Roland Bartoloucci. Stop in and view this amazing collection! Military insignia has a long history beginning with Roman armies and continuing into current militaries. Can you guess this infantry division? One hint is that it was a history-maker. Contact Sally Pellegrini at ext 139 for the answer or wait for the answer to appear next week.

 

                                                                                     

HAUNTING ROMANCE

Looking for something to stir your spirits on a dark and chilly October night?  You might think that supernatural romances aren't your cup of tea, but ghosts can turn up in almost any type of romance-- from sweets to Gothics to hard-boiled romantic suspense.  As phantom lovers, spectral matchmakers, or the ultimate in unearthly villains, ghosts can add something a little out of the usual way.  If the idea of a haunting romance intrigues you, check out one of these titles!
