DVD of the Week

This week's DVD of the Week is 'To Walk Invisible: 
The Bronte Sisters.' 

Made by BBC and directed by Sally Wainwright, 'To Walk Invisible' is a drama about the struggle of the Bronte sisters to find recognition for their literature while supporting the men in their family from their cloistered world. Where many period dramas glorify the time and try to make classic figures heroic, Wainright tries to keep the sisters as realistic as possible.

Library Spotlight
Steven Melbourne
What do you help out with at the library?
I've worked for years on the Candle light stroll committee and I work weekly on the Book Worm Shop. I've been a Friend of the Library for about 5 years.

What do you do for the book worm shop?
We sort books and make sure the shelves look good and organized so people can find books they would like to read!

Why do you do it?
That's a good question. You know, I like to volunteer. I've been volunteering for a variety of things since I was 30. It's great to give back to the community.

When you aren't at the library, what are you doing?
Traveling a lot. I go to concerts and theater with my wife, Donna. I've also been going to activities with my new grandchildren!

What are you reading?
I particularly enjoy autobiographies. Recently I read Bill Bryson's books. I also read architectural magazines.
April 17, 2017
The weather is... well let's talk about books. Stop by the desk anytime to talk about what you've been reading. Librarians love books and love talking about books.

There are even special times to talk about special books. The Mystery Book Group, for example, meets tonight to talk about Elizabeth Elo's 'North of Boston.' On Thursday the Book Discussion Group will meet at 12:30pm and 6pm to talk about 'Dead Wake' by Erik Larson. These books are handpicked to be interesting, thought provoking, and discussion making reads.
