Reading up on the Oscars

Now that the Academy Awards have all been given out, it's time to do some catching up! You can always request DVDs of any of the movies by searching our catalog, but did you also know that fully half of the Best Picture nominees were based on books? See below:

Happy reading!

Not too late to celebrate!

The weather outside is just beautiful and I'm sure that many of our avid patrons and visitors are enjoying the first signs of beach weather (at least for a day in February). However, it's not too late to be part of our celebration of Library Lovers' Month.

You still have 11 more days to enter our Library Lovers' Gourmet Gift Basket Drawing. For every 3 books (or magazines, or audiobooks) you check out, you'll receive 1 ticket entry into the Gift Basket Drawing. The more you check out, the more entries you'll receive. The last day to enter is February 28th.

Also, be sure to get a kiss or a hug (of the chocolate kind) at the Circulation Desk! Fill out a paper heart letting staff know what you love about your library so that we can display it on our Wall of Hearts.

We still have quite a few librarian themed books available for checkout. My suggestions would be "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger and "The Historian" by Elizabeth Kostova.

Happy reading! ~Kim
