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

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.
