Can you believe that the year is almost over? It feels like we just enjoyed the arrival of the New Year, made resolutions, and felt hopeful that this year would be better than the last one. At the library, one of our resolutions is to always delight our patrons. Nothing makes us happier than seeing a smile on your face. Throughout the year, we pick our brains to figure out how to make life easier for you.
Here are nine service enhancements we made this year.

Ah, the holidays. Did you all have a great Thanksgiving? I hope you did. Mine was very relaxing. We watched the Macy’s Parade, the dog show, and all the football. All of the football. Did you know that Dallas and Detroit are the only two teams that always host an NFL game on Thanksgiving?
You do now, and so do I, because when your family knows you’re a librarian you get asked all the questions, even on Thanksgiving. (Which I don’t mind!)

Like many readers, I enjoy biographical books. Writers use an enticing array of approaches to telling the story of a person’s life.
When an author writes his or her own life story, it can be an autobiography or a memoir, or maybe a fictionalized autobiography. If someone else writes the book, it could be a biography or even historical fiction. It all depends on what the writer wants to share and how the author thinks the story is best told.
I first got hooked on mystery novels at the age of 8, when I discovered the amazing escapades of amateur kid sleuth Nancy Drew and her gal pals Bess and George. They were constantly stumbling across all kinds of creepy cases from the Secret of Shadow Ranch to the Mystery of the Moss-Covered Mansion.
