News from the Library for April 18, 2017

Our paperback book readers will be happy to know that an entire wall has been dedicated to housing these little reading gems with custom-made wooden shelving. They are now located on the second floor of the library, directly behind the Tennessee Collection. In order to locate them, just take the staircase, turn right and head straight back to the far wall. New paperback signage has been ordered. If you have any requests for particular paperback titles/authors to be added to this collection, please send me your suggestions on a Patron Comment Form available at any of the public service desks. Please note: while this section is filled to capacity, we plan to double this collection by building the same amount of shelving on the opposite side back wall in the near future, if funding is approved by the County for the next fiscal year.

The Cumberland County Playhouse Cast will perform selections from “A Second Helping” – the Church Basement Ladies Sequel – on Wednesday, April 19th at 12:00 noon in the library’s Cumberland Room.
Come early to get a good seat!

Great New Books!

A Perfect Obsession by Heather Graham
Someone is murdering beautiful young women in the New York area and displaying them in mausoleums and underground tombs. The FBI is handling the case, with Special Agent Craig Frasier as lead. As more women are murdered and their bodies discovered in underground locations in New York, it's clear that the police and the FBI are dealing with a serial killer. Craig and Kieran are desperate to track down the murderer, a man obsessed with female perfection.

Casey Stengel: Baseball’s Greatest Character by Marty Appel
For a man who spent so much of his life in the limelight--an astounding fifty-five years in professional baseball--Stengel remains an enigma. Acclaimed New York Yankees' historian and bestselling author, Marty Appel, digs into Casey Stengel's quirks and foibles, unearthing a tremendous trove of baseball stories, perspective, and history. Weaving in never-before-published family documents, Appel creates an intimate portrait of a private man who was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1966 and named "Baseball's Greatest Character" by MLB Network's Prime 9. Casey Stengel is a biography that will be treasured by fans of our national pastime.

Richard Nixon: the Life by John A. Farrell
This is a gripping and unsparing portrayal of the darkest president yet a great leader and human being whose troubled upbringing and personality traits led him to a political and psychological corner. The first one hundred pages describing Nixon's childhood could bring one to tears. Meticulously researched and brilliantly crafted, Farrell offers fresh revelations shedding new light on the roots of our own obscure political moment.

Libraries = Information!

“In the South, we love a well-styled and accessorized fireplace mantle” says Southern Living magazine,
“. . . the more layers, the prettier the finished product.” One of their favorite mantel decorating ideas is to layer varying sizes of framed or unframed art decoratively on the mantle. And they suggest that you don't always have to hang. If you do, don't hang frames too high. Just a few inches above the mantel is the ideal height. Another fireplace mantel decorating tip is to hang numerous sizes and shapes of mirrors instead of just one.

Stingy Schobel Says . . .

Room service at a hotel is a glorious luxury. Inflated prices, service/delivery charges and the gratuity can double the price. Instead, go to the restaurant, order for takeout to your room and voila-savings.
