February Displays

Red Hot Reads
Choose a book from our "Red Hot Reads" display. The only criteria for this display was that the cover had to be red in honour of Valentine's Day.

Freedom to Read Display
For the Month of February you can view our "Burnings and Bannings in History" Display. It gives a little history on books that have been challenged in the past. You might be surprised to find that it includes some good old favorite classics.

Life in the Library

Well, it is the middle of February and I've almost finished all the reports that have to be done by the end of February.

Our Library System has also implemented a new Intigrated Library System (computer program). It went live yesterday. It was very exciting, but hard on the old brain as well. I'm sure that once I get used to it I'm going to love it. It is the Unicorn System that is used by thousands of libraries all over the world. It is a big step up from our old DOS based program. This one is Windows based and looks very nice.

Our library clients have been really patient with us as we are learning this new program. We love all our library users!!

Gulliver's Travels

Well, I had a post from the Teen Online Reading Club about Gulliver's Travels and I realized that I haven't read the whole book. I've always read the part about Lilliput, but never finished. So I am currently reading Gulliver's Travels.

Does anyone have a favorite land that Gulliver travelled to?
