Think Warm Thoughts

With the forecast calling for more snow and cold temperatures over the next couple of days, it looks like it should be a perfect weekend for wrapping yourself up in your Slanket or Snuggie and reading a few good books.  Not sure what to read?  Check out a few of these tools that librarians at CLP have put together to help you pick exactly what you’re in the mood for:

  • Booklists: This page on our website has booklists on a variety of topics, from fiction that features Stalin as a central character to books on bicycling or cooking.  We’ve even got booklists that suggest the perfect books for the winter months.  And don’t forget to take a look at our booklists for teens and kids as well!
  • Staff Picks: Looking for a recommendation from someone who’s already read the book?  The Staff Picks section of the website highlights books that staff have recently read, and gives a short annotation of each book.  It’s the next best thing to asking a librarian (which we also encourage!)
  • Reader Reviews: On this page, you’ll find short reviews on adult, teen, and children’s books from other library patrons.  If you’ve read something you’d like to share, you can also write a review of your own. 
  • New Fiction, New Non-Fiction, and Fiction and Non-Fiction Bestsellers: Here you can discover some of the newest books we’ve added to the collection, and find out what everyone else is reading these days. 

Of course, if you’re still stuck, you can always ask a librarian. Stay warm this weekend!

    Let me start by saying great blog. Im unsure if it has been addressed, however when using Firefox I can never get the whole page to load without refreshing several times. Maybe just my modem. Thanks

    • Hi Allison – glad you like the blog!

      WordPress actually recommends viewing in Firefox, and it’s generally set up to play nice with the browser. There are a number of different things you can do to improve the way the page displays – click here for a list of suggestions.

      Hope that helps, and that you’ll keep reading!
