This will be my last column and I thank all of you who support the library by reading about what we are doing and by coming in to check out books as well. The shelves of new books are bursting with many choices and we hope you’ll drop by soon. We’re here Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. till 6 p.m.
Katrina and Holly are continuing to try to plan Halloween activities for kids and teens.
With good weather we could hold these outside and social distance. Donations of wrapped candy to the library during October will help us with this expense. Thanks as always for your support!
Many of you know I’m a science geek so for my last article I want to feature two new books we’ve gotten which are just fabulous! The first is by Anne Druyan, widow of Carl Sagan, and is titled “Cosmos-Possible Worlds.” Ms. Druyan helped to initiate the first “Cosmos by Sagan” and the series of programs which were featured.
Even if you only look at the wonderful pictures and illustrations it will be well worth your time.
The second book is by Brian Greene, a renowned physicist, and is titled “Until the End of Time.” This one is full of beautiful pictures but is written for the lay person’s reading. Greene does an excellent job of showing how all the sciences work together to picture our universe.
Prior to the late 20th century biologists, chemists, physicists, and quantum physicists were not inspired to work together.
For lighter reading Steve Berry has a new offering available, “Warsaw Protocol,” which is as usual entertaining.
