The 2017 One Book, One Community selection is Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford.
An informal book discussion will be held on Thursday, October 12, at 3:00 pm on the Library Porch in the Livingston Lord Library.
2018 will be here soon and we need to discard our oldest magazine and journal issues to make room for new ones. Please see this spreadsheet of discarded issues and contact Danielle if you’d like any of them.
From October 1st-15th, the Curriculum Materials Center will feature a display of international books from the United States Board on Books for Young People Outstanding International Books List. We have received a generous donation of 200+ books from professor emerita Carol Sibley, who had served for two years on the OIB committee in 2016 and 2017. The OIB list features books that represent the best of children’s literature from other countries and that help American children see the world from other points of view. The complete 2017 honor list can be found at http://www.usbby.org/list_oibl.html.
Please see the latest spreadsheet of Library discards and contact Danielle if you’d like any of them for your department. Most of these books are about finance, families and children, social welfare, and graphic design.
