Bookmark Contest and Bookmarks

Recently we held a bookmark contest for the children who are served by our RIF program. The entries have been judged and the winning bookmarks are being printed. When done, they will be available in the library. Meanwhile, the remaining entries are on display in the hallway outside the library. Homer has some very clever and artistic children, and it was hard to chose the winners. But, in a very real sense, they are all winners.

News for You

What’s news this week in the Homer Library? Seven new adult fiction books and four new DVDs are waiting to get checked out. They are Born in Death by J. D. Robb, A Carol for Christmas by Robin Lee Hatcher, Under the Northern Lights by Tracie Peterson, First Impressions by Nora Roberts, H.R.H. by Danielle Steel, Thirteen Moons by Charles Frazier and The Widow by Carla Neggers.

The new DVDs include Cars from Disney, Firewall with Harrison Ford, The Lake House with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves, and Dreamworks’ Over the Hedge.

We are still seeking input on our survey. Before we spend $3,000 on non-fiction audio books, we want to know what subject areas you are interested in. You can either pickup a survey form in the library, or take the survey online by copy and pasting the urls from our October 20 and 28 posts into your browser. The online survey is in two separate parts.

Thank you to all who have already participated.
