Birds in Jackson: a bird lovers' paradise--that's one of the unique assets of this area, according to the Greater Jackson Chamber of Commerce!
Mongolian music! Yes, I've been visiting the library's Naxos database again. This morning, while updating the political section of the Carnegie collection, I listened to Mongolian Music from Buryatia by the Badma Khanda Ensemble. This collection of mostly traditional Mongolian music is very pleasing--several staff members commented on it as they passed by. Some of the music is gentle, quiet melody that makes a nice background to work or study.
If you have an interest in genealogy, the library is one of your first stops. Visit the Genealogy page on the website. There are two online databases available free through the library: Heritage Quest and Ancestry. Ancestry is only available at the library, but Heritage Quest is accessible from any computer anywhere with your library card and pin number. (If you don't know your pin number, go to the checkout desk.)
As the weather warms, lots of people head outside. And with finances limiting what we can do and where we go, the backyard looks better and better. Or does it? If your house could use some help before you start entertaining al fresco, try some of these outstanding books available from the Jackson District Library.
The library has children’s materials to help divorcing parents deal with their children’s questions and fears. There are two types of these materials: first, books written for the parents, to give advice and comforting tips to the stressed parents. Second, there are books written for children, to teach these young ones about divorce and to reassure them concerning the changes happening in their environment. This column lists those written for parents.
