Christmas Stories for Grown-ups

There’s no question that children are a big part of Christmastime festivities.  But that doesn’t mean the adults have to be left out.  Lots of authors write Christmas novels for us grown-ups.  Some of the most prolific writers of Christmas fiction are Debbie Macomber, Anne Perry, and Mary Higgins Clark.  Check out the Christmas books by them and others on our “Jingle Bell Reading” display.

Resolutions Solutions @ Your Library

As the year draws to a close, most of us start to think about the coming new year and some goals and/or changes we would like to accomplish during the year.  I know I have set my new year resolutions which seem to be pretty much the same for the last few years--exercise more and eat sensibly.  But there are many more resolutions that people make and to help with setting goals and accomplishing them, we have a new display of books--"Resolutions Solutions"--that can help.  Browse the display on your next visit to the library and you'll find some informative and useful material.  If you don't see what you need, please ask and we will interlibrary loan what you need.  Happy Holidays and Happy Reading!

What's Your Favorite Christmas Movie?

While talking about our all-time favorite Christmas movies, someone suggested that I turn our discussion into a blog post. There is no shortage of Christmas movies on TV, but you might have to put in a request to watch some of our favorites.

 How the Grinch Stole Christmas - You will like this even if you don't like Jim Carrey.

The book bags come in red, blue, and dark green.
