What's Cooking?: Popovers for the Holidays

The holiday season has begun and I look forward to creating my holiday menus.  I would love to bake some artisanal bread for the holidays but it involves a lot of prep work, kneading and waiting for the bread to rise.  A wonderful alternative is the unassuming yet spectacular-looking popover.  It is delicate and crusty, so delicious when slathered with butter, cream or jam.  It surpasses that crusty loaf or those dinner rolls with its versatility for the upcoming holidays as well as for afternoon tea, breakfast or dinner. Despite its elegant appearance, they are fun to eat and kids love them!

Digital Content now searchable within library catalog

Search results in the Enterprise library catalog now include digital content that can be accessed directly from the Overdrive website with one click.  Ebooks, digital audiobooks, and streaming movies can be checked out (or placed on hold) without having to make a separate visit to the Digital Download Center found under the "Find an Item" tab on our homepage.

Digital content will be clearly identified as "Electronic Format" on the results page.

Another new feature is the "Buy It Now" button.  This allows you to purchase titles if you so desire - a portion of the sale will go to benefit  our library system.  Something to think about if you have to read (or listen to or watch) it right now!

Old Rockland County in Autumn and Oral Histories at the New City Library

In September we collected 13 oral histories from long time residents of Rockland County thanks in part to a grant from the Library Association of Rockland County.  We now have a web page devoted to our new oral histories where you can start to listen to some clips.  Check it out at http://newcitylibrary.org/oralhistory.  For October we are highlighting a story from Tom Schassler of Stony Point.  Tom visited me my first day working in the Rockland Room to do some research for one of his historic preservation efforts up in Stony Point.  This story from Tom is a perfect one for Autumn.

Hair-Raising Horror: Tales to Terrify

terrified man - photospin 963_4483691With Halloween only a week away, I'm sure many readers are looking for that perfect book to get them into the spooky spirit. I have the ideal list-- a blood-chilling blend of recent and classic horror, thrillers, dark graphic novels, and even a little non-fiction.

Although... hm. I can't really call this a recommended reading list. To be honest, while many of these titles are critically-acclaimed masterworks of horror, I wouldn't personally recommend any of them. I'm a horror wimp, and I like being able to sleep at night.

Instead, let's call this a warning list. As in, WARNING: The books on this list are terrifying. No, I'll go even farther than that-- they're downright disturbing.  Epically creepy, and (in some cases) grotesquely gory. (That's another warning, by the way-- splatterpunk (which is as icky as it sounds) is well-represented here.)

In short: THESE BOOKS WILL MESS YOU UP.
