Tried a "Classic" Movie Lately?

Every Tuesday, when our new DVD releases are put out, there is always a huge demand by our customers to reserve these titles.  Our Audiovisual Department however, has many wonderful "classic" movies that can rival any of today's new releases.

One County's Proud History

Rockland, the smallest county in the state excluding the five boroughs of Manhattan, was the center of so much of our colonial development. Separated from Orange County in 1798, the bounty of Rockland’s history surrounds us as we pass the many sites and buildings, beautiful mountains and the grand Hudson. Agriculture dominated the county through the centuries buttoday there remain only two working farms. One of these is the Davies farm located on Route 9W and 304. The library is most fortunate to have an exhibit that displays the history and beauty of this farm. Our thanks to Jan and Niles Davies, Jr. who shared their family’s memories and achievements as we celebrate Rockland History Month.

Digital Download Center

Our first frost this morning, and I will now have to do my final fall clean up in the garden. My fellow workers recognize all the hard work involved in gardening and marvel at the time and effort I put into caring for plants. I have a lot of help from the Digitial Download Center on the Library homepage. It's not a chore to dig, weed, and plant when I am simultaneously listening to a great book. If you have an Ipod or MP3 player, you too can download some great books and make all those repetitive tasks of yard work and house cleaning seem less time consuming. I recommend the flowing titles: The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff and Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith. Stop by Adult Reference and ask about Digital Downloads and get the most out of your MP3 player.

DARKLING DAYS, CHILLING NIGHTS: SPOTLIGHT ON HORROR

October.  The days are getting shorter; the wind has turned chill.  Darkness falls upon us more quickly now as we creep slowly towards the end of the year.  Halloween approaches, a time when (some say) the boundaries between this world and the next wear thin.  When the restless dead might walk.  When we start to wonder... what else might be hiding out there, in the growing darkness?  Intrigued?  This month, I invite you to explore the darker side of fiction.  Check out... HORROR!

What's Cooking?

Do you love the culinary arts as I do?  Interested in cooking, baking, and reading cookbooks?  Yes, I'm one of those who reads cookbooks with the same intensity and concentration as I do a novel or a nonfiction title.  That's why it is my good fortune to have the joy of ordering and maintaining the cookery collection.  One of my goals is to provide the latest cookbooks as well as a diversified collection, a little bit of something for everyone.  Check out our cookbook display by the new nonfiction in the Adult Service area. 

We welcome feedback so please share your culinary experiences or comments.  I hope you will be excited as I am with the following newly acquired cookbooks:

This is Where I Leave You
Author: Jonathan Tropper

Summary:
The death of Judd Foxman's father brings his dysfunctional family back together to sit shiva for seven days.  That situation alone should be difficult enough; however, it's compounded by Judd's discovery of his wife's affair with his boss and the subsequent loss of his job. Will he survive the week with his three siblings and his mother the "enlightened" therapist?
