Spooky books for spooky weather

Posted by heather in Interesting Tidbits

It's October once again and there's that distinctive chill in the air that says Autumn is here! It's an excellent time of year to hunker down with a cup of tea and a spooky read. We have lots!

Book display by Heather, featuring selections from our general collection, DVDs, Sci-Fi, children's books, teen, and non-fiction.

Latest Addition...

Posted by heather in Library News

We admit we have been rather lax lately in getting the new book lists up.

However, we have found a way for you to still see what we're adding to the collection, when we're adding it!

You will now see on the main library page, a section in the lower right-hand corner titled "Latest Additions..." In it we have created a RSS feed of our new books -- which means that listing is updated at the same time as we update our catalog!

Also: everything that shows up in the "Latest Additions" box is a link that takes you directly to the catalog record for that item, so you can read more about it or place a hold if you like.

Questions? Let us know! :)

WA-List Library Card Gallery

Posted by heather in Interesting Tidbits

The WA-List website has done something very, very cool -- they've put together a mosaic map of the state of Washington using images of library cards from around the state.

http://www.wa-list.com/?p=418

"We contacted every public library in Washington and asked them to contribute a card (real or digital image) to our project.  The first card arrived within ten minutes... In the end we collected 99 cards from 49 different library systems... (FYI: There are 58 library systems in Washington that use cards and two that don’t.  Only nine libraries did not submit cards to the project.)"

And guess what? Our library card is on the map! :)

Kicking Off the Summer Reading Program!

Posted by heather in Events

It's almost time for our annual Summer Reading program! Sign-ups begin on June 11th, but we're kicking things off early with a special performance by the Walla Walla Walla Chamber Music Festival musicians this Friday at 3:30pm.

The Walla Walla Chamber Music Festival musicians will be presenting a performance called "Harp," of Beethoven's String Quartet in E-flat, op. 74. The nickname 'harp' comes from the way the musicians pluck the strings during the first movement.

Refreshments to follow the performance.
