FPLDidYouKnow - Library-Wide

Here are a dozen books we're currently reading. What are you reading?


Robyn: Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld



I saw a YouTube video recommending this book so I picked it up.


Lisa: Doctor Sleep by Stephen King


Do you routinely talk about fictional characters as if they were real? Do you check out the bookshelves of houses you visit? Do you feel like you have a connection with a complete stranger based on a book you see them reading? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions you may be a social reader. Other signs you’re a social reader may include, but are not limited to:

Chances are you’ve probably had to do a presentation once or twice, either for work or school. (Or for fun, if that’s your thing.) And chances are if you’ve done a presentation, you’re used to the woes of PowerPoint to present said presentation.

So if you’ve done a presentation and subsequently swore you’d never do another, but find yourself required to do so anyway, may I introduce to you a much easier (and more fun) way to build presentations.

YOURS! If you use it.


Your Frisco Library is getting started with a “Master Plan” process that will determine the future of library service in Frisco and we need to hear from you.



What does your library of the future look like? What will you find there? What will you do there?

While I try to do my part to reduce, reuse, and recycle, I'm just not into crafts that create clutter (what parenting magazines call "cute craft ideas") out of odds and ends.

In fact, I try to keep those odds and ends out of my house in the first place. So, even when I am inclined to try to those projects, I generally don't have the necessary supplies

It's the time of year when we give extra attention to those we love. And for some of us, the people we love live in the pages of books. Here are some of the literary characters we love the most:


AdamSherlock Holmes & Dr. Watson

The sun went down and the lights over the study tables came to life. They both looked up at the same time and their eyes locked. “I can’t believe it’s dark out already,” she said with a partially stifled yawn. 


“The light makes your eyes dance,” he said with a shy smile. She blushed.


That was 2 years ago….the day they first met. Today they’re back at the library to take their engagement photos.

There are many things we LOVE about working at the Frisco Library. Seeing and hearing the gate alarms go off, however, is not one of them. (Maybe you can relate.)


That's why we're thrilled to announce a software upgrade that makes it easier to know that your items have checked out successfully.



To the right of each title, you'll see one of three color-coded status notices:

It's a new year -- and that means new books to read. Here's what we're most looking forward to reading in 2014:

It’s that time of year again!  Maybe you (or someone you know) has decided that this will be the year of change!  We applaud you.  And we’d like to help!


Maybe you’ve resolved to begin creating your family tree…


…your library offers excellent ancestry and genealogy resources online here.


 


Maybe you’ve resolved to take up a new knitting hobby…

If there's one good thing about being iced in for a few days, it's the chance to snuggle under a blanket and read a good book. Or two. Or three. After reading these recommendations, you might find yourself singing "let it snow, let it snow, let it snow" so you can read a book, read a book, read a book.
