Originality: That's What You'll Find in JCPL's New Adult Fiction!

Original: first or earliest; being that from which copies are made. That is the definition of the word “original,” according to the Webster’s Dictionary.

After a morning of grocery shopping and having to choose items to bring home and put away in my own kitchen, I felt a little overwhelmed, seeing all of the choices on the shelves in the market.

Your Friends @ JCPL Invite You to Enjoy These New Reading 'Hacks!'

I love words, but have recently become confused by the use of the word “hack.” Looking it up in Webster’s Dictionary, the definition was just as I expected; ‘short, dry cough;’ ‘to manage successfully,’ ‘computer hacking’ ‘to cut, or chop roughly or with heavy blows.’

Driving home one day, the radio was shouting out my favorite ‘60’s songs. Before I pulled into the driveway, the last song I heard was the Rolling Stones’ ‘I Can’t Get No Satisfaction.’

This April, JCPL 'Showers' Us With New Adult Fiction, and That's No Joke!

April 1st has come and gone, but my grandkids are firm believers in April Fool’s Day jokes and pranks.

My five year old grandson is just getting his feet wet with the idea of April Fool’s Day, and told me that morning that he is going to ‘pwank me.’ It was too early in the morning to try and decipher what that meant, but I asked him to repeat himself.

Hike on Over to Your Local Branch of JCPL for Great, New Fiction!!

Plenty of vacations taken through the years stand out in my mind. Isn’t it always nice to get away? Nicer, still, to get home and just enjoy relaxing with your family.

Some folks like adventure; some like scenery; others just enjoy the thrill of seeing something different.
