Caregivers, IT IS COMPLETELY OKAY TO ASK FOR HELP!

We librarians each take a turn blogging here. When I learned my turn would fall in November and that is Family Caregivers Month, I was excited for the coincidence. Having been a caregiver to my partner Michael, who was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, I knew I had something to contribute. Initially I thought I’d talk about how important it is for caregivers to take care of themselves, but I didn’t take care of my own self, so that would be disingenuous.

Thrillers and Mysteries and Horrors, Oh My!

To me, October is truly the most wonderful time of the year. To quote one of my favorite books, “I was born in February but I come alive in October” – Rainbow Rowell, Attachments. I’ve never related to anything more. The air is crisp, the colors are vibrant and it’s the best time to curl up with a good book, preferably one that keeps you on your toes.

A Wholesomely Creative Year

How are those resolutions going?

Every new year, I try to establish a creative goal. And each year, I learn how to be more vulnerable and patient with my crafts. I’m not sure if you made a resolution or a yearly intention, but I ask you to consider enhancing your creative spirit. Reader, I am sure you’ve been through a lot the last two years, I know I have. Arts, crafts, and hobbies help us burn a little brighter. This year, how can you acknowledge the creative feeling within?

Virtual Author Visits Galore!

This fall, we have had the pleasure of hosting several authors virtually over Zoom to discuss the books they’ve written along with what is in store for them in the future.

If you were unable to attend the visits, fear not! They are available to view here.

Witch, Please! Modern-Day Witches Are Here To Stay

We are almost halfway through October, and I know I am ready to celebrate the spooky season! We love this time of year.  So many characters come to mind when thinking about All Hollow’s Eve, but one that has really risen in popularity is witches! And I am not talking about green-skinned, wart-faced ladies who ride broomsticks in the night! There has been a lot of interest in Paganism and Wicca practices (and we still love the green skinned kind too).  Because of this, modern day witches have certainly put a spell on our fiction and nonfiction world!
