It was something like...

It's funny how the mind works.  Picture this: you're having lunch with your best friend.  A few weeks ago, you finished a book that you absolutely LOVED, and you think she'd really like it, too.  But now that you have the opportunity to recommend it to her, you find that a few key details (like the book's author and title) have slipped your mind.  You can wax rhapsodic about the plot.  You can remember the color of the dress the heroine is wearing on the cover, and you remember her name-- Rose.  (Or maybe it was Violet?  A flower, anyway.)  You know she has an eccentric older relation.  You sit there wracking your brains, feeling a little embarrassed over your lapse, and assure your friend that you're almost positive the word "Scoundrel" is somewhere in the title... or maybe it was "Scandal"?  (If you're a regular romance reader, you're probably laughing in pained sympathy by now.)  Anyway, you got the book from the library; you're sure the librarian could help her find it.  (Librarian's answer: "Maybe?")  Sound familiar?  I can assure you, you are NOT alone in this difficulty.

Tamara and her devastated mother are forced to move from a Dublin suburb to the countryside to live with Tamara's aunt and uncle… Tamara comes across a book in the library that captures her attention. Its pages are initially blank, then they start to fill with Tamara's own thoughts from the following day. Realizing she is able to not only read the future but change it, Tamara uses the diary to unravel the mystery at work in her new home.

Who do we appreciate!?

It’s the Pages! Did you ever stop to think about how all our books, magazines and audio books are shelved? Every day our Page staff puts away just about all the books returned that day and new items sent up by our Technical staff. Each item on our browsing shelves was put there by a Page. It is their responsibility to shelve non-fiction according to Dewey Decimal numerical order, fiction alphabetically by the author’s last name, and biography alphabetically by subject. If an author has several books then the titles need to be alphabetized. Did you know numbers go before words in a title? As an example when searching the author James Patterson, the title ‘4th of July’ is shelved before ‘Cross,’ and ‘Cross’ is shelved before 'Four Blind Mice.' If there is more than one author with the same last name, books are shelved alphabetically by last name, first name. Each author’s titles are then put in alphabetical order. Did I lose you yet?

Newspaper Choices

There is increased interest in researching old newspapers as they become digitized.This eliminates those blackened fingers, crumbly pages and musty smellsl! The time saved by keyword searching has also enhanced researchers' finding.

At the February meeting of the Genealogy Society of Rockland, two members discussed digital newspaper web sites that were very helpful to them. The first is offered by the Northern New York Historical Newspapers and the address is nnyln.net. Through this you can look at many of the newspapers in north western and central New York. The articles appear and you can reduce the full page to the article. The member speaking mentioned that he was looking for information on a relative and could never find anything about her. Voila!! He found a bunch of social notes that described tea and other social meetings at her house.
