Book Review: Library Staff

"It is a wonderful book [that] can help you bring sweeping changes to your life.”

Josi Manturano, Gold Mine Processing Associate, recommends The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.

In The Four Agreements Don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, The Four Agreements offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

It is a wonderful book for stress management and personal growth. It can help you bring sweeping changes to your life.

This always will be a great little book with some weighty ideas. . .

Book Beat: Student Book Review

Hello! My name is Elizabeth. I love reading, and my favorite book is My Sister’s Keeper. I am in the 8th grade and enjoy dance. For my Book Beat review, I read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, by Benjamin Alire Sáenz.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe follows the main character Aristotle, nicknamed Ari, through his teenage years.

Ari meets Dante at their local pool, and they hit it off instantly. As Ari learns more about Dante’s personal life and family, Ari gets a thirst for knowledge about his own family and his mysterious brother who is in prison. . .
