Better Than Google

Are you getting ready to sell your old clunker?  Are you buying a new car?  If so, how do you know what is a fair price to ask or pay? 
For years, patrons would come to the reference desk for the little yellow books (the National Association of Auto Dealers, otherwise known as NADA) or the little Kelley Blue Books to check prices on new and used cars, including trade-in values. No longer must they come to the library, because you can access this information from home.  You can either log-on to the New City Library database page,and click on these listings, or, skip that step and log-on directly to kbb.org or nadaguides.com.
Kelley Blue Books is a free site and does accept automobile advertising--no surprise there.  However, it is very easy to find prices on new and used cars, customized to your specifications and zip codes.  In addition, it is a trusted source that librarians have used for years.

Not Just for Teens

Recently teen books have become very popular with adult readers.  Many people enjoyed reading The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne.  As the Teen Librarian, most of my personal reading is in the teen book area.  I still read an occasional “Adult “ title and enjoy a wide range of adult authors.  However, I find that many “teen” books are fun and exciting to read with complex ideas, plots and relevancy.   The following are some of my personal favorites.

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly [ separared by centuries, a teen tries to cope with the tragic deaths of two young boys]

'Investigating Mysteries' cancelled this Monday

The "Investigating Mysteries" book group meeting for Monday, Nov. 10th has been cancelled due to a death in the family.
