Have you seen an Assyrian Warrior on the loose in the library?

Assyrian Warrior

Recently, Art Agent, Cecilia Samuel, installed an exhibit of fine art at the library. There are three significant pieces by Artist David Lamont. Lamont takes ancient wall engravings and relief images and recreates them in exact detail. His Assyrian Warrior stands over 9' tall. Come and check out his work as it will only be here for one month. If you would like to meet the artist, he will be at the Northwest Library on Wednesday, June 9th from 6:30-8:00 PM.

Use Your Receipt as a Bookmark!

When you check out a book, you usually recieve a receipt that says when it's due.  Why not use that receipt as a bookmark?  It will remind you when you should return the book to the library, and if you forget to take it out of the book before you return it, it's not a big deal.  When you use your library card or personal notes to mark your page, you can easily forget that they're there and lose them when you return the book.  Just a tip to help you enjoy your summer!

The Value of Silence

Northwest Branch library is the best in the world, but if you're expecting it to be completely quiet this summer, you may be disappointed.  Our library is so busy and has so much going on we are essentially a community center.  If you simply must have silence to study or what not, I recommend trying one of the libraries associated with a college, or going to a larger library like Barbara Bush where the children's section is downstairs and the adult section upstairs.  In the end, always remember: silence is golden, but Northwest Branch library is platinum!
