Check Out Our Book Bundle Podcast! April 1, 2016

With all the books we have in the Adult Fiction stacks, how do you find one that you will like?

We have all faced this dilemma, and sometimes we’re stumped! What to read next?

CCLD has come to the rescue!! (Ta daaa!!!) We now have a podcast to combat this dilemma! What is a podcast, you ask?

The Merriam Webster Tenth International Collegiate Dictionary defines “podcast” as: a program made available in digital format for automatic download over the Internet. (thanks, Wikipedia!)

For us, podcast means: check the front page on our website (http://ccld.lib.ny.us/), scan the links on the right side of the page, and look for the word “podcast”. Click to go directly to the site, and start listening at your convenience!

In about 20 minutes you will have the title and author of about a dozen books well–reviewed from either Amazon, Goodreads, or from myself, covering any and all genres, all strong contenders worthy of your reading time. That saves YOU a lot of fishing time (looking for the next interesting read). Checking reviews is done for you, and you can be sure the choices are going to be enjoyable.

I will give you a heads’ up on issues in the storyline and other points noted in the reviews, but will never give the story away. All books will be chosen from our shelves. I won’t be filling the podcast time with popular authors, because I know you are looking for something that may not have had the publicity of the bestsellers.

So click, listen, and decide which read is for you. All titles will be repeated at the end of the show for your convenience.

You’re welcome!

What is New Adult Fiction? March 9, 2016

Posted by CCLD in Recommendations.

It seems like we are bombarded with more labels just when the world seems to be shedding old, worn ones. Labels are meant to be useful tools, and despite our preference to rid ourselves of them, they do serve a purpose.

For example: New Adult fiction is geared for readers 18 to about 25, sometimes as old as 30, who have outgrown Young Adult fiction, which is based on high school aged protagonists.

The description as per EBSCO’s NoveList is rather long, so I have included the site address for more information, a partial description is as follows; *”This fledgling category is a result of the perceived dearth of novels featuring characters in a post-adolescent but not quite adult phase of life, as well as the growing trend of young adult “crossovers,” or YA novels that also appeal to an adult audience. These novels aim to bring the emotionally-intense story lines and fast-paced plotting of young adult fiction to stories that focus on a new range of experiences in life beyond the teenage years.”

Some of the New Adult fiction we have here at the library:

iamradarI Am Radar, by Reif Larsen

Twisted Innocence, by Terrie Blackstock

Falling for Autumn, by Heather Topham Wood

Casebook, by Mona Simpson

The Child’s Child, by Barbara Vine

The Irresistible Henry House, by Lisa Grunwald

Indignation, by Philip Roth

Gardening season is just around the corner! February 20, 2016

Gardening season is just around the corner! Did you know you can check out seeds at the Horseheads Free Library? We are a Seed Lending Library, which means you can borrow seeds, grow your plants, save some seeds from those plants at harvest, and then return those next generation seeds to the library for others to borrow. The seeds you save and return are a gift to your community.

Coming in March, we are adding more seeds to our collection. Come on in and select some tomato seeds, such as the delicious and succulent Black Prince Tomato, or the fun bright yellow Taxi Tomato! Get adventurous and try out some hot pepper seeds, such as the Hot Paper Lantern, or the fiery Red Rocket! For the flower lover, we will have a variety of sunflowers to try, which are especially nice for children to try their hand at growing! All our seeds are non-GMO and are mostly organic, with some heirloom seeds as well.

Interested in learning more about gardening? We have it covered! Sign up for our Garden Series classes! The classes we are offering this year are:

Grafting How-To:  Wednesday, March 16, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM

Producing Healthy Transplants:  Wednesday, April 13, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM

Garden layout and Design:  Wednesday, May 11, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM

Pollinators of the Home Garden:  Wednesday, May 18, 6:00 PM-7:30 PM

Seed Saving Bee/workshop #1:  Wednesday, August 31, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM

Seed Saving Bee/workshop #2:  Wednesday, September 14, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM

All classes are presented by Jabe Warren, Horticultural Educator. The seed saving workshops will be a practical hands-on practice of how to save seeds, so you will be able to save your own seeds and return them to the library! Registration is required for all classes. Call 739-4581 to register. Our Garden Series is generously funded by the friends of the Horseheads Free Library.
