Last year, the family of LeMae Urbaniak decided they wanted to do something special to celebrate LeMae’s 80th birthday. Since she was interested in literacy, they decided in her honor to purchase and donate to the library 62 books from New Readers Press written for adult new readers. They include a wide variety of books about math, literature, social studies, science, and reading and my favorite: “A Dictionary of Homophones.” They are now ready for check-out. You can find them in the Adult New Reader section, located at the end of the videos section. You can see the entire list of our 169 adult new reader titles by selecting a call number search of ANC in our online catalog.
The artist for January in our lobby display is Ed Newman. He put together a wonderful display of paintings and drawings he has done of Bob Dylan, and included some of his Dylan memorabilia.
