Book Sale

 

The Friends of the Parker Williams Library will be having their monthly book sale on Saturday, September 25, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Come and find some great deals on hardback books, paperbacks, books for children, CDs, DVDs, and magazines.

What's Cooking?

Cookbooks are very popular items.  Not surprising, considering the numerous shows on television such as the Food Network, American's Test Kitchen, Iron Chef, Yan Can Cook,  Paula Deen, Rachel Ray, Barefoot Contessa, etc., etc., etc.   My personal favorite is America's Test Kitchen, the televison show and the cookbooks.  Check out our special display of cookbooks and see if you get a little more excited about being in the kitchen.

New Picture Books

Looking for something new to read with your child? Check out the new picture book section in the children’s area of the library. New books come in very frequently and there’s something for everyone. New titles in this week include:

Lola Loves StoriesLola Loves Stories by Anna McQuinn

And the Winner is?

Charlotte Bulcken won the $50.00 Amazon.com gift card at Parker Williams Branch for her participation in the 2010 Adult Summer Reading Program, ReaderNation.  Charlotte said it was her daughter, an avid reader, who told her to register.

When asked what she will do with the card, Charlotte stated "Since I don't know anything about computers, I'm going to get one of the kids to help me find out what's available (on Amazon.com).  Then I'll get something for myself or a gift for somebody else."

September heralds the coming of the autumn season. Autumn is one of my favorite times of year. I love the vibrant colors of the changing leaves and the possibility of cooler weather. Autumn officially begins on September 23rd and here’s a list of fall books to get you in the mood.
