A patron who loves to read nonfiction books recently told me how he found the books that he reads. He subscribes to Delancey Place. He gets a daily email from them with an excerpt of a book. I will include a link to the website here and if you are interested, give them a try.
The RIOT ACT (Readers In Our Town Are Coming Together) will meet next Thursday to discuss the book, The Invisible Wall by Harry Bernstein.
The book for February is Little Bee by Chris Cleave.
Let us know if you wish to join our book club group!
The Cookbook Club's very first meeting will be next Tuesday. Our theme is Cuban food and we are getting our recipes from the A to Z World Food website link on our library website's main page.

We will be closed on Saturday, December 23rd, Monday, December 25th, and Monday, January 1st! Happy holidays to everyone!
D. Paul Miller gave an excellent talk about his experiences in the Senior Olympics. He was very modest about his accomplishments but his competitive spirit came through. He chose to discuss some of the meets in which he had particularly excelled. It was interesting to learn how much he had improved from when he had first started. He talked about his exercise regimen and his vegetarian diet, which he credits for his longevity. He was extremely modest about the book he wrote about his life, From the Dustbowl to the Corn Fields. It will be available for checkout at the library in the near future.
Betty Stine made a variety of sweet breads for everyone to sample and she also did her very best to make sure there was a good turnout for Mr. Miller. Michael Heffron also worked hard to try to recruit an audience for the presentation. Thank you Mr. Miller, Betty, Michael, and all those who attended! A young man in the audience won the raffle prize which was a gift certificate to Java Eats n Sweets!
I heard a reminder on the radio today and wanted to pass this information on to anyone interested about signing up for a government Healthcare Plan.
