Early Closing: The Headquarters Library will close at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 7, due to street closures for the Christmas Parade. Please visit one of our branches or access our catalog, eBooks, and research tools online.
Jessie Knadler, transplanted from Montana, is living a less than satisfying life in the Big Apple. She’s just been laid off from her position as a magazine editor; she recently learned that her lover has a proclivity for (really) young girls; and she’s certain that her late nights spent drinking into the wee hours will not prolong her life. When she’s offered a freelance opportunity to return to Montana to write a story on a popular rodeo event, Jessie figures she’s got nothing better to do…plus there’s always the nagging fact of needing cash. In Rurally Screwed: My Life Off the Grid with the Cowboy I Love, Jessie’s trip back West will dramatically change her life.
A recent gathering of the library’s storytime presenters made one thing apparent--oldies really are goodies! When staff shared our preschool participant’s favorite songs and interactive activities, I was struck by how many of them revolved around beloved classics. Games I played as a child--and bet you did too--like “Simon Says” and “Red Light, Green Light” are regularly incorporated much to the delight of children and their caregivers!
Gumdrops, lollipops, chocolate squares, jelly bears, and peppermint candies. The sky is the limit as far as decorating your own gingerbread house. They are a ton of fun to decorate, but first you need to make the house itself.
