Great New Adult Fiction is Always in Season @ Your Local Branch of JCPL!

One morning as I ventured into the home of my daughter and four grandchildren, I was greeted by one of their two cats. Asking my nine year old granddaughter where Sugar had been that morning, she replied, “Oh, she was probably out hunting mice, you know, getting as many as she can before hunting season is over.”

Get the Facts From These Great, New Non-Fiction Reads @ JCPL!

One of my favorite games is Trivia Crack. Am I good at it? Not really, but it’s fun trying to remember what I learned in geography, history, science, & art, and how much I pay attention to the world of entertainment and sports.

Enjoy These New Adult Fiction Titles Thoroughly, Through and Through!

American pianist, conductor and composer, David Burge had it right when he said, “Yes, the English language can be weird. It can be understood through tough, thorough thought, though.”

How Do I Love Books? Let Me Count the Ways!

I love words, and because I love words, I love books. In fact, I love books just as much as I hate math, and I hate math very much.

Live the Life of Riley With These New Adult Fiction Titles From JCPL!

‘Working like a dog,’ ‘dog tired,’ ‘it’s a dog’s life;’ these phrases give me pause as I look over at both of my dogs, stretched out on a couch in each room, comfy and dreaming whatever dreams that dogs dream.
