What's Cooking?: The Ice Cream Sandwich

I was just reminiscing the other day of things I loved to eat as a little girl in the summer months.  What came immediately to my mind were those ice cream sandwiches my brother and I would always get.  Our parents would give us change to run to our local grocery store.  We were barely able to reach down to the freezer to grab that 2½ x5-inch treat of vanilla ice cream sandwiched between thin layers of chocolate cake (cookie?).  You know the kind.  Funny, I remembered I was afraid I might fall into that freezer trying to get that ice cream.  I often prefer the Good Humor strawberry shortcake ice cream bar on a stick but my parents discouraged it because it was too messy to eat.  The ice cream sandwich provided a wrapper that can be torn circumferentially as this rectangular sandwich is consumed.  My parents were very practical people…and neat.  Wow, what tangent memories one little ice cream treat can evoke.  Create your own forever moments.

Keeping Safe

All libraries, whether public or private, are concerned with the security and maintenance of their material.  To that end, the collections in this library have an activated security system in place.  Most times material is 'deactivated' at checkout and you leave with no problem.  Occasionally the detection alarm rings even though you have a complete checkout receipt.  The  blame usually falls to barcode placement, most common on material from other libraries but sometimes on our older items as well.  Cases containing more than one disc might need extra attention also.  When  the alarm sounds we ask that you return to the Circulation desk; we'll deactivate the security and thank  you for  your patience and understanding.  

Better Than Google

Access Video on Demand is one of the most exciting databases we have ever had.  Unlike our more traditional databases, it doesn’t have text, but has video! So, rather than read information in the form of articles or e-books, you can watch actual films. Enjoy over 13,000 films, and 207,000 segments of free streaming video. Access Video on Demand and Archival Films feature eight comprehensive collections including films by such greats as Ken Burns, NOVA, Bill Moyers, National Geographic.

You can watch independent full-length films, archival films and newsreels, travelogues, plays, cooking shows, news programs, instructional videos on mathematics or career planning, and the list goes on and on. When you search by subject, and you will get a list of videos that pertain to it. You can even save them on your own playlist and watch them at a later time. I guarantee you will find something fascinating in this database.  Just explore it by subject and you will spend hours moving from one mesmerizing video to another.
