What's new on the shelves?

When people ask us, "What's new?", they don't mean it the way most people do. What they mean is -- what new books have you got for me?
Some of today's answers:

In fiction,
Chris Bohjalian's new novel The Double Bind

J.D Robb's new mystery Innocent in Death

Andrew Greeley's Irish Linen

Sutherland's The Red Hat Society's Domestic Goddess

The Star Wars novels Dark Lord and Revenge of the Sith

and in non-fiction, look for

Rafe Esquith's Teach like your Hair's on Fire

Michael Bowker's Fatal Deception: the Untold Story of Asbestos

Robert Peterson's Pigskin: The Early Years of Football

and lots more!
Come on in and take one (or more) home today!

Love is in the air . . .

Valentine's Day is popping up all over the libraries today. This morning, we hosted a preschool storytime with Valentine's stories and card making. Balloons, candies, and roses adorn the staff areas (thanks, guys!) and wishes of "Happy Valentine's Day" can be heard throughout the building.

Where to find love in the library? Why not celebrate with a love story or two? Check out our romance section or borrow a romantic movie. Catch up on the celebrity love gossip in our magazine section. Take home a craft book and make your valentine a homemade gift. Check out a new cookbook and whip up a romantic dinner or dessert. And have a happy Valentine's Day!
