Baby, It's Cold Outside...

While most of you stayed sensibly snug in your beds this morning, I'll bet a hardy few got up in the wee hours to get a head start on your holiday shopping.  At the library, though, our shopping's already done! 

Since October, the librarian elves have been busily at work ordering the latest Christmas romances.  Most of them have already arrived and been processed by our technical services elves, and our circulation elves stand ready to check them out to you!  (And you thought elves just made shoes and toys!)

When you're out braving the cold and traffic this month for last-minute gifts, don't forget to stop at the library and pick up a gift for yourself-- a toasty seasonal read to curl up with.  Whether you're looking for something new, an old favorite, or something you might have missed, we've got plenty of titles for your wish list!  (Sorry, no gift-wrapping, but we'd be happy to throw in a free bookmark or two.) 

The mercury may be falling outside, but in the romance section it's warm hearts from cover to cover!

Oh-- speaking of hearts, ours have gotten a little bigger.  New City's paperback romance collection has recently expanded to include same-sex romances. It's just a few titles right now, but I'll be adding a couple more every month, as demand warrants.  They're shelved with the paperback romances-- just look for the "rainbow heart" label on the spine.  (In the catalog, they'll have "LGBT" before the call number.)

Stay warm, and have a happy holiday season!
