Have Yourself a Merry Little Reading Break

Black Friday is behind us at last, but alas! That only means the holiday shopping season is just ramping up for many of us.  Don't get me wrong-- I love to shop.  I love making lists (and checking them twice), and I love finding gifts for the special people in my life.  I enjoy all the other things that go with this time of year, too-- baking and decorating and special events.  (I could do without the traffic, but hey, that's Rockland for you.) 

What does bother me is the sense of a looming December deadline that seems to have grown with my adulthood.

A Book Review of Independent Study by Joelle Charbonneau : reviewed by Sarah Singer

 

 

The sequel to The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau, Independent Study, is full of suspense and thrills. Cia Vale, after finishing a series of grueling tests, has finally been admitted to the University. Even though her memories of the testing have been erased, she remembers. Cia delves deeper and deeper, trying to uncover the ugly truth about the true nature of the government. This thriller is a page turner, filled to the brim with romance, passion, betrayal, violence, and danger. Dystopian fans will surely devour every word of Independent Study.

What's Cooking?: All About the Sides

When the leaves shimmer against a slightly overcast autumn sky, a kaleidoscope of red, orange, and gold beckons the entry of Thanksgiving Day.  Many of us are getting ready for the feast ahead preparing an extensive menu that disappears all too quickly as it is consumed.  Of course, some believe the star of the holiday is that big fat turkey gracing the dining table.  Turkey does not sit on a pedestal in our house pretending to be the center of it all.  The main attraction in our home is those faithful side dishes that we look forward to every Thanksgiving.

Better Than Google

Is your idea of a good time taking apart your 1967 Ford Mustang?  Do you enjoy changing your car’s oil?  Would you never pay a mechanic to work on your car when you can do it yourself?  If you have answered yes to any of these questions, you will be delighted by our newest database offering—ChiltonLibrary. 

For years libraries have provided Chilton manuals for car repairs to our patrons who were not afraid of getting their hands dirty.  We kept scores of old volumes in order to provide a wide range of years, makes and models.  But wouldn’t you know it, we never seemed to have the one someone needed right then.  It was frustrating for the patron and for us, knowing that no matter how many volumes we had, if it wasn’t yours, it was no good.  Now, with ChiltonLibrary, you can always find what you need.
