Celebrate Short Story Day
Jamie the Librarian
News & Events
Short Story Day always takes place on the shortest day of the year (of course!). This year it falls on December 21st. Why celebrate short stories? According to Edgar Allen Poe, they leave the reader with “a sense of the fullest satisfaction.”
Teen Retellings
Jamie the Librarian
News & Events
Whether you know it as a remix, retelling, or reimagining, stories that incorporate elements from classic tales or well-known legends provide ways for us to explore the “what if.” Retellings, reimaginings, and remixes all provide us with a somewhat familiar set-up, but have a modern twist, be it setting or otherwise. From retellings of Greek mythology to remixes of Jane Austen, the books below provide an example of the wide range of retellings we have in our teen collection. Happy reading!
Famous Foods and How to Cook Them
Jamie the Librarian

Ever wondered what a Krusty Burger tastes like? What about Buddy the Elf’s Breakfast Pasta? Luckily for our taste buds, creative chefs have compiled, created, and in some cases re-created, recipe collections of famous foods from cinema and television. From The Simpsons’ fast food to Downton Abbey feasts, from Hogwarts feast hall to The Sopranos’ New Jersey family table, our library cookbook collection has titles for any fan’s delectation.

Getting Cozy for Winter

As days get shorter and nights get longer, many of us will spend more time at home to escape the growing darkness and chill of autumn as it transitions into winter.  How can we make our time at home more comfortable and relaxing?  Make hygge like the Danes do!
