Oceanside Library Patrons Recommend…

Are you in a reading slump? Don’t know what to read next? You’re at the right place!

These titles have been recommended by Oceanside Library patrons who have been attending our Page Turners Book Chat. This program meets once a month as a place for bookworms to recommend new books to each other. It is not only a great place to make a new ‘to-be read’ list, but a place to make new friends and chat. All are welcome to join!

Page Turners will be meeting this month on Thursday, March 23rd at 2:30PM.

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.

How are those resolutions going?
