The Thrill of It All by Cindy Hulsey

There is nothing more thrilling than discovering a new author.  As a librarian I’m exposed to numerous new authors and titles, and it can be daunting to sift through all of them to find the gems. New books are often disappointing, but occasionally I’ll find one that makes me count the minutes until I can race home, fling open the pages and spend time with characters who are so real they jump off the page.  I recently found such a book by first novelist Rebecca Rotert called Last Night at the Blue Angel.

Enough Is Enough by Will Thomas

I’ve got this crazy notion that people should write their own books.  There should be no more novels by assembly line, no more “here, write a novel based on my idea and we’ll publish under my name”, and no more legacy novels, with modern authors using former authors’ characters “from the estate of”. Some people are making a lot of money, but at whose expense? I’m wondering if it is ours.

Want to plant a vegetable garden? The library now has a seed library to help you get started!

With the TCCL Seed Library, you can borrow seeds from a large variety of vegetables (and a few fruits and flowers as well) to take home and plant in your garden. Since, hopefully, the seeds will become plants, we don't expect you to bring those exact same seeds back. However, once the plant produces, you simply take a small portion of the vegetables, fruits, or flower, harvest the seeds and dry them, then return those to the library for other people to use.
