Snowy winter days are for reading a good book

Stop by your local library and chose a good book. Cuddle up near the fire with a hot cocoa and a mystery or romance.

Happy Birthday William Shakespeare :)

https://in.celebrity.yahoo.com/news/william-shakespeare-turns-four-hundred-fifty-years-old-100702393.html

William Shakespeare turns four hundred and fifty years old today :)

He is the one who is in so many English classrooms.  There is a lot to learn from him.  Much Ado About Nothing is one that the kids have acted out in our school systems.  He will be forever missed

Words are Powerful by Best-Selling Canadian Author Cheryl Kaye Tardif

Cheryl Kaye Tardif shares her thoughts and tells us her story of why she loves books and how she became a writer.  I think it would be a lovely idea to have a  Canadian author’s book in the library. Please check out her website.

Snow storm damages many books in the Longfellow Bookstore Portland, Maine

Due to our winter storm on Friday, between thirty and forty percent of Chris Bowe’s books have been damaged.  He is hoping to open the store in time for Valentine’s day.  The firefighters helped in saving as many books as possible.  Very sad when a large amount of books get ruined.  The community is trying to help any way they can. Bowe said “Water is a terrible thing for books.”   I can agree with him there because it has happened to me.  Once a book is wet it is hard to dry it out completely.  Fingers crossed he has his business up and running in the next day or two.  Our thoughts are with him as he fixes the damages done to the building and replaces some of the books.

Happy birthday Anne Rivers Siddons

We would like to wish Anne Rivers Siddons a happy birthday today. Born as Sybil Anne Rivers she was raised in Fairburn, Georgia and attended Auburn University.  Our library has the book “The House Next Door” and many other books by her.  Burnt Mountain came out on July 19,2011 and I realize I do not have this book.  This date is special to me because my grandmother had her birthday on July 19th.
