So next week is Thanksgiving, which means lots of food, a day off, and the beginning of shopping season. And while, I personally, have a pretty lowkey holiday planned, the library has some stuff happening you might want to know about. Let me sketch them out quickly.

This Saturday we invite you to our Second Annual LibCon 11-3! If you were one of the lucky folks who came last year, you already have some idea of what’s in store, but if you didn’t attend our first comic convention at the library, then let me tell you what we have in store. There […]

This year’s book is Beautiful Boy by David Sheff, a memoir about his son, Nic’s, drug addiction. (There is also a separate book for young readers: High, co-written by David and […]

I like writing and talking about writing, so it probably won’t come as any surprise that this Saturday’s Local Author Fair is something I’m really […]

If you stopped by Amazon today to buy an ebook copy of Vendetta in Death, the latest J.D. Robb book that currently sits atop the New York Times Best Sellers list, it would cost you $14 and it would be all yours to read and reread as many times as you like. If the library […]
