A huge shout-out to the Jackson Citizen Patriot for deciding to keep the library's newspaper column At the library when the format changes take effect. There will be no break in the articles appearing on the book page of the Live It Up section. Thanks so much!
Looking for a group to talk about the latest great reads? Join the new high school/college age group that meets at Carnegie on the second Thursday of the month. Come January 12th to argue your fave--Hunger Games or Twilight. Or just to tell us you hate them both! We want to know what you think and why. Meet at 6 pm in the McIntyre Room on the second floor. Free Eats, too!
Yesterday the Jackson Citizen Patriot staff informed the library that the At the Library feature column on the back of the Live It Up section of the Sunday edition will be dropped as of February 2012. From then on, that page will be standardized across the state.
For those who wish to request something be continued or to complain, the Citizen Patriot states they will be listening closely to patron feedback. If you're going to miss us, let them know!
Thanks for your support and all the positive comments t
Some of the best reading of childhood comes from Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, Little Men and the following books. I fondly remember these books, which I frequently re-read as a child. The movies were so pleasant, too! If you haven't watched them with your little ones, they might be good ones for the holiday vacation.
While reading this weekend, I actually found myself holding my breath. The challenge I've set myself recently is to try new authors, and one of the first I selected is best-selling thriller author Greg Hurwitz. His newest publication is You're next,and the title might tell you just how intense the tension and terror are throughout. Michael Wingate was abandoned at age 4, grew up in a foster home, always looking for his dad to come back.
