Every Book Its Reader

One of the 5 laws of library science is "Every book its reader," which suggests  that each item in a library has an individual or individuals who would find that item useful. That's why we do our best to build a varied collection that represents a wide variety of interests and questions, so there will be something of use and interest to anyone who walks through our door.

Here's a great example! Have you ever had a problem with squirrels robbing your birdfeeder? This couple did, and here's how they solved the problem:

Or maybe you'd like some other options for your squirrel challenges. The library can help! Check out this book:

Outwitting squirrels : 101 cunning stratagems to reduce dramatically the egregious misappropriation of seed from your birdfeeder by squirrels by Bill Adler Jr. If "101 cunning stratagems" can't help you, I think you might have to admit to losing the battle!

This is just one example of the wide variety of topics represented in the library collection. Check the New Materials page and stop by the library to explore what we have for you!

New Books @ the Library

Hopefully, you've noticed the New Materials section of the library's homepage. Here's an example of what this week's section looks like:

New Materials with book covers

Because so many books are checked out as soon as they hit the shelves, this is a great place to check up on what's new to the library even though they might not be on the new book shelf when you come in. Clicking on a book cover for any of the categories will take you to a list of recently added materials where you can then check InfoSoup for availability and place a hold.

But these aren't the only 4 categories available for you to explore! Click on the New Materials page link and, in addition to the categories above, you'll find new biographies, large print, kids fiction & kids nonfiction. The new materials lists are a wonderful way to explore the library. If you have ideas for additional categories, please post a comment and we'll see what we can do!
