New Books @ Your Library

Thank you for the recent flattering comments on the new book display area. It’s gratifying for us to know we’re providing useful displays.


We will continue to separate our new books but the way we display them is changing. In addition to the “pyramid” display, new books will be displayed on the end of the fiction shelving as well. This is part of an ongoing project that includes adding more computers and a separate reader’s advisory section on the back of the fiction shelves. Thank you for your patience as we complete this project.

Bachelor Books: Become a more Eligible Bachelor and Get Ahead in this World

The one eligible bachelor on our reference staff has created an authoritative display of Bachelor Books for your November reading. He has gathered topics bachelors might need advice about, such as The Boyfriend Handbook, The Action Hero Handbook, and self-help guides like how to write a prenuptial agreement, do your own divorce, be a landlord, or beat a traffic ticket.

There are books on financial investing and more basic offerings like The Secrets of Casino Gambling and Beating the Odds. The way our bachelor sees it, "some guys invest their money in stocks or real estate; others invest it on sports betting or blackjack".  In today's economy, why not?
