Inspiration and Enrichment @ the New Oxford Library

In thinking about this article, I found the following quotation inspiring
"A library is both comfort food and inspiration, opportunity for growth, and the place where anyone can come for personal enrichment." Judy Strong, Author.
Looking for another way to use the tomatoes and zucchinis growing abundantly in your garden? If so, you’re in luck!  You will see a collection of recipe books at the library to help you with the vegetables you are harvesting. I have been making Dill pickles and Zucchini Bread, Zucchini cake. . Well, you can do so much with zucchinis.
I have a great assistant who enjoys the challenge of creating monthly displays of materials to inspire and surprise our patrons. Did you know August is National Golf Month and the 13th is Left Hander’s Day?  We also can’t forget the birthdays of the authors, Herman Melville (August 1) and Mary Shelley (August 30).
If you like to talk about the books you read and would like to join a book discussion group, come to the library. We talk about the author and then the book of the month as well as other books we are reading. Feel free to join us-registration is necessary and the books are provided by the library.  The Readers Forum Book Discussion, an Adult Reader's group meeting the 2nd Thursday of the month from 9:00AM -10:00 AM are reading the following titles:
September 13, 2012, A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron -The 2012 Adams County Read One Book Selection.
October 11, 2012 Girl in the Green Raincoat by Laura Lippman
November 8, 2012 The Reader by Bernard Schlink
December 13, 2012 Dog Tags by David Rosenfelt

         Families with toddlers, be sure to plan to attend our Thursday morning story times from 11:00AM – 12 Noon. We will have stories, handouts and activities from the Kindergarten Here I Come calendar. The Office of Child Development and Early Learning has developed four calendars packed with fun activities that also help develop all the skills young children need to succeed in school.
