Do you love browsing through cookbooks and trying new recipes or cooking techniques? Join fellow foodies for our Cookbook Club. You don’t have to be a gourmet chef to participate. Each month we will get together to talk about a certain cuisine, theme, or a celebrity chef.  There will be food samples or activities at every meeting. A selection of cookbooks will be available for members to borrow, or you can bring your own to discuss. Browse our collection, try out some of the recipes, and join the group to discuss your successes and mishaps.

Science Has Great News for People Who Read Actual Books

0

Read Books Instead of Devices

“It’s no secret that reading is good for you. Just six minutes of reading is enough to reduce stress by 68%, and numerous studies have shown that reading keeps your brain functioning effectively as you age. One study even found that elderly individuals who read regularly are 2.5 times less likely to develop Alzheimer’s than their peers. But not all forms of reading are created equal.

The debate between paper books and e-readers has been vicious since the first Kindle came out in 2007. Most arguments have been about the sentimental versus the practical, between people who prefer how paper pages feel in their hands and people who argue for the practicality of e-readers. But now science has weighed in, and the studies are on the side of paper books.

A 2014 study found that readers of a short mystery story on a Kindle were significantly worse at remembering the order of events than those who read the same story in paperback. Lead researcher Anne Mangen of Norway’s Stavanger University concluded that “the haptic and tactile feedback of a Kindle does not provide the same support for mental reconstruction of a story as a print pocket book does.”

David Baldacci

Best-selling author and literacy advocate, David Baldacci, is Honorary Chair of National Library Week 2015 (April 12-18, 2015). Baldacci’s novels have been translated into more than 45 languages and have been adapted for film and television. Over 110 million copies of his books are in print worldwide.  In addition, Baldacci is involved with several philanthropic organizations, including his family’s Wish You Well Foundation®, which fosters and promotes the development and expansion of literacy and educational programs.

Today’s libraries are more than just books. Increasingly, they are places of creativity where people can meet to share a hobby, use a 3D printer, edit a video, or use software to record their own music. Libraries offer access to the tools and technology essential to the economic and cultural lives of their communities.

Head to your library during National Library Week to see what’s new and take part in the celebration.  Libraries across the country are participating.  Use the hashtag#NLW15 to follow the celebration on social media

As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of the Princess Bride by Cary Elves As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of the Princess Bride by Cary Elves

From actor Cary Elwes, who played the iconic role of Westley in The Princess Bride, comes a first-person account and behind-the-scenes look at the making of the cult classic film filled with never-before-told stories, exclusive photographs, and interviews with costars Robin Wright, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest, and Mandy Patinkin, as well as author and screenwriter William Goldman, producer Norman Lear, and director Rob Reiner. This book will take you behind the scenes where you will remember all your favorite moments from the movie and get to experience new behind the scene tales any fan will enjoy and love.

I would recommend if you are a fan of books on CD, or just want to try something new, this is one to listen to, hearing the actors talking about the experience themselves was so much fun I enjoyed listening to the reading more than I thought and had a hard time stopping when it ended. As soon as you finish the book you will want to go back and watch the movie and see things in a whole new light.

When she regains consciousness, she finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won’t even tell her his name. She’s determined to escape him and willing to take any risks necessary to survive. Unexpectedly, however, the two have a dangerous encounter with people who adhere to a code of justice all their own.

 Calling All Pets by Kate FinchCalling All Pets by Kate Finch

There is a new children’s series PET HOTEL. I read the first book Calling All Pets by Kate Finch. It is a cute new series about a hotel for various animals.  Anyone who has pets or who enjoys animals will like this series.  The book is also geared for first and second grade readers and many of the titles are worth 1.0 AR points too.

Twins Meg and Charlie are moving into their great-great-aunt’s hotel, and they’re in for some surprises! The run-down hotel is full of cool old rooms, a rooftop garden, even an elevator. There’s also one big problem–it doesn’t have any guests. But when Meg and Charlie volunteer to look after a neighbor’s golden retriever puppy, the fuzzy little furball gives them a great idea. They’re going to transform their new home into an amazing hotel…for pets!

Driving with the Top Down by Beth HarbisonDriving with the Top Down by Beth Harbison

Dara, savvy in business but not so savvy in love, has unexpectedly found success running a monthly tag sale after losing her job and inheriting her uncle’s farmette in Maryland. Colleen, feeling underappreciated and in a rut with her husband and kids, rents a stall at Dara’s tag sale, and now the two women are embarking on a two-week antiquing/thrift shopping roadtrip to Florida in the hopes of finding some diamonds in the rough to fix up and sell. However, things take an unexpected turn when they meet Jonnie, a mousy woman down on her luck in a big way, at a North Carolina diner. They offer her a ride with them to Florida, but they soon learn Jonnie has been hiding a few key facts: Jonnie has poisoned her abusive husband, and now she’s on the run. And Dara and Colleen are accessories after the fact… Three women, two weeks, one truck: sometimes life doesn’t take you in the direction you expect

I Work at a Public Library: A Collection of Crazy Stories from the Stacks by Gina SheridanI Work at a Public Library: A Collection of Crazy Stories from the Stacks by Gina Sheridan

Straight from the library–the strange and bizarre, ready to be checked out! From a patron’s missing wetsuit to the scent of crab cakes wafting through the stacks, I Work at a Public Library showcases the oddities that have come across Gina Sheridan’s circulation desk. Throughout these pages, she catalogs her encounters with local eccentrics as well as the questions that plague her, such as, “What is the standard length of eyebrow hairs?” Whether she’s helping someone scan his face onto an online dating site or explaining why the library doesn’t have any dragon autobiographies, Sheridan’s bizarre tales prove that she’s truly seen it all. Stacked high with hundreds of strange-but-true stories, I Work at a Public Library celebrates librarians and the unforgettable patrons that roam the stacks every day.

Witchling by Yasmine GalenornWitchling by Yasmine Galenorn

We’re the D’Artigo sisters: Half-human, half-Faerie, we’re savvy—and sexy—operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency.  But our mixed-blood heritage short-circuits our talents at all the wrong times.  My sister Delilah shapeshifts into a tabby cat whenever she’s stressed.  Menolly’s a vampire who’s still trying to get the hang of being undead.  And me?  I’m Camille—a wicked-good witch.  Except my magic’s as unpredictable as the weather, as my enemies are about to find out the hard way…At the Wayfarer Inn, a portal to Otherworld and the local hangout for humans and beasties alike, a fellow operative, Jocko, has been murdered.  Every clue points to Shadow Wing, the soul-munching, badass leader of the Subterranean Realms.  He’s made it clear that he aims to raze humankind to the ground, turning both Earth and Otherworld into his private playground.  Our assignment:  Keep Shadow Wing and his minions from creeping into Earth via the Wayfarer.  The demons figure they’re in like Flynn.  After all, with only my bumbling sisters and me standing in the way, how can they miss?  But we’ve got a secret for them:  Faulty wiring or not, nobody kicks ass like the D’Artigo girls…

The Rotarian article cover

 

“The public library is the community’s kindly grandmother: helpful, patient, understanding. Nobody in my town ever stands up and says he dislikes the public library. Nobody in your town does, either. Grumpy old librarians who keep shushing you, sure. But not the library itself.”

We don’t have any grumpy old librarians who shush here at the Mogadore Branch, do we?

Find out more about the public library as an institution and what The Rotarian has to say about us by clicking the link below.
