Ballad Hymn of the Tiger Mother

27 May

On the other hand, I finished Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother and I just felt tired.  How can someone hold hown a demanding job and spend hours every day coaching her children on violin and/ or piano.  I just don’t know where you get the time, let alone the drive.

I am listening to a P.G. Wodehouse audio book and really laughing.  I know humor is personal but his books have lasted for over a century and he is very very funny.  I heartily recommend P.G.Wodehouse to everyone.



27 May

ebooks are going live next Tuesday.  And we start checking out Nooks to help our readers become familiar with ebook readers.



23 May

The library will start loaning e-readers very soon. Probably June 1. We will start with Nooks since they are compatible with our e-book distributor, Overdrive. Kindles will soon be compatible as well and we will loan them too.



17 May

Check out our book display on books in bloom.  Will there ever be a spring?  For all you gardeners, this must be frustrating.  I don’t want to read about gardening!! I want to be outside.


Author’s Luncheonon

16 May

June 25– mark your calendars.  I just finished The Thousand by Kevin Guilfoyle who will be our author  at the lunch on June 25.  Fabulous book– a thriller and based in Chicago so lots of fun.  More every day.  Tickets will go on sale this week.

Civil War

02 May

My sister is here visiting and we are doing some genealogy on the library’s databases.  We are realizing that the Civil War divided our grandfather’s family– like so many others.  So it seems fitting on the 150 year anniversary of the Civil War that many of us should do our genealogy to see how families were divided.
