BookWise for August 23 August 28, 2007Posted by mplibrary in Uncategorized.
Welcome Back, TWC!
Be sure to come by the library for your fix of books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, and computers. You’ll notice that at the moment we are just finishing up our renovations, so our lower floor is still in disarray. The Catalyst Cafe’ area is to be tiled on Monday Aug. 27, and we should have the coffee perking again soon thereafter.

This week, student Nathan Fox reviews the graphic novel 1602 (see below), Neil Gaiman and Andy Kubert’s Marvel superhero take on the Elizabethan era. Be a reviewer for our blog! Contact librarian Sarah Roy, firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 252-1103.

The library now has 2 laptops available for 2 hour use in the library. Bring your ID, fill out a laptop registration use form, and you’ll be eligible to surf via our wireless network.
Our newest library database is Credo Reference, an acclaimed collection of over 250 specialized dictionaries, encyclopedias, and other types of reference works by many publishers. One of the titles is the Hutchinson Unabridged Encyclopedia Including Atlas, which has many audio and video clips.
Quotation of the Week:
“It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.” J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
