What's Cooking?: Summer's Bounty

The best thing about summer is the beautiful produce in full bloom.  I love going to the markets to see and smell the variety of fruits and vegetables in season.  I especially hunt for a favorite of mine - those Rainier cherries.  As I gaze greedily along the aisles my “eyes become bigger than my stomach”.  I want to try all this fresh luscious bounty knowing I would not be able to eat it all.

Changes to Overdrive

Overdrive, our content provider for e-books, digital audio and video, has recently updated its features.  Following are the options you'll see next time you sign in to your account:

Hold suspensions - You can suspend your hold on the waiting list for a title.  This keeps you advancing on the list but does not make the title available to you until you're ready for it.

Auto checkout - When a title becomes available, it will be automatically checked out to you, and you'll get an email indicating so.

Maturity levels - Search results can be limited by Children, Teen, and Adult reading levels.

Changes in the website include a new "Recommended for You" feature that displays as soon as you sign in.  Boolean searching has changed from "OR" to "AND".  That means your search results will become more relevant since all the keywords you type in must appear in the resulting list of titles.  Minor bug fixes have been added, too.

Hup Cap Artists

 

Ansa Thomas, Priyanka Ramanathan and Sudarshan Sundar display their unique Hub Cap art work.  This week's winner of The Book in the Bottle is Tara Patale for The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells.  We still have Renaissance Tickets for Reading Club Members.  It's not too late to join and win a ticket.  Our current Book in a Bottle has no entries, so I will give you some very strong hints.  The title of the book can be found on one of the Reading lists, and the title also appears on the bottom of the bottle.  See if you can play detective and select the title and author.  Good Luck!
