Reference Room to be painted
Starting Monday November 13, 2006, the Reference Room will be closed for a week or more for painting.  We can move reference books you might need into the reading room for use there.  Just let us know Friday what you will need.

Recently added to the collection:
Agents of Bioterrorism:  Pathogens and Their Weaponization by Geoffrey Zubay
The Civil Rights Movement in Tennessee :  A Narrative History by Bobby Lovett
The Knowledge Deficit:  Closing the Shocking Education Gap for American Children by E.D. Hirsch, Jr.
Francis Crick:  Discoverer of the Genetic Code by Matt Ridley
Living With Jazz:  A Reader by Dan Morgenstern
The Single Hound by Emily Dickinson
The World is Flat:  A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century by Thomas L. Friedman
…and many more

The Writer’s Almanac http://writersalmanac.publicradio.org/
Garrison Keillor’s daily literary almanac on American Public Media Radio is also a web site.  Each day Keillor highlights writers born that day,  describes their work and significance in his inimitable style, and often reads a poem.  Readers can read through the archives,  listen to recordings of the broadcasts, and sign up for podcasts.

What Are You Reading?
I am currently reading: Santeria: An African Religion in America by Joseph M. Murphy, Thirteen Georgia Ghosts and Jeffrey by Kathryn Tucker Windham, and Behind the Attic Wall by Sylvia Cassedy.   –Susan Dunn, student

TWC students, faculty, and staff, tell us what you are reading!  If we use your submission in BookWise, you’ll win a cool library button.  At the end of the semester, you’ll be entered in the grand prize drawing.  Send your current reading list to library@twcnet.edu

Quotation of the Week:
“To limit the press is to insult a nation; to prohibit reading of certain books is to declare the inhabitants to be either fools or slaves.” – Claude Adrien Helvetius (French philosopher, 1715-1771)
