What's Cooking?: Breaking Bread Together

 

How can one not be comforted by the aroma of freshly baked bread in the oven?   Every time I drive by Rockland Bakery, the smell permeates the surroundings reassuring me that all is well when the baking of bread has not lost its timely rhythm.  The crusty artisan breads I would buy from lower Manhattan can make a mundane meal into something extra special.  Those meals with extra gravy and sauce call for a thick slice cut from a loaf to mop up all that deliciousness.  There is something about freshly baked bread that reminds one of home, providing comfort and satiation.

The Presidents    

In the past several months of this Presidential election year, we've heard all about Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.  But do you know..... Which president acted in 53 Hollywood films? Which president owned a haberdashery in Kansas City?  Which president was nicknamed "Old Hickory"?  Who was the only president to be married in the White House?  Which president served between two Bush's?  Find the answers to these questions and other presidential facts at www.thewhitehouse.gov.    Also included on this website is information about the First Ladies, Vice Presidents, Camp David, Air Force One, and behind the scenes photos of President Obama in action. Then visit the library to learn more.  Look for these titles:

Zombies vs Unicorns

In the calm before the storm, teens competed in Zombies vs Unicorns this past Saturday, October 27 at the library.  We had Unicorn Poop Cookies, Brains and eyeball lollipops for snacks.  Teens had laser tag and computer games.  This after hours program allowed teens to play in the library  without disturbing  our regular library users.  Everyone had a great time and teens have asked for more after hours programs.

It's Amazing-Check it Out

Curious about what happens when you hand your browse cards to a Circulation staff member working at the AV desk?  You set in motion a very precise and organized system.  Picture being able to survey a maze from above and you'll see how we work.  With browse cards in hand staff starts walking up and down the various pathways searching for your material.  The first few aisles hold adult DVD's, shelved by genre; entertainment, nonfiction and biography or collection, for example, Blue ray.  Continue up and down the next few aisles for Juvenile material; DVD's, music and VHS.  Keep going to find games and CD-ROMS.  The newspaper collection is shelved down another aisle and includes The New York Times, Post, Daily News, Journal News, Wall Street Journal and financial and local papers as well.  Present your library card and read them in the library.  The music collection is shelved along the entire perimeter of the maze.  When you return your material we get to do this in reverse.  Our maze is amazing and so is the staff.
