    The Best Summer Beach Reads for 2017

    By: Christy V. Temple Well, school is out and it’s time to enjoy the bounty of summer. One of the best things about summer time is the ability to catch up on the things that normally we don’t get to do as much of and that includes reading some of the latest and greatest novels, biographies and other wonderful non-fiction. Normally, I don’t seem to have as much time lately to read the way I…

    Shabby Chic

    By: Christy V. Temple The terms “shabby chic” have been around for a while but what does it really mean? Well, according to an online search I performed using Google here is a basic definition of the terminology. Shabby Chic is defined as “a style of interior decoration that uses furnishings that are or appear to be pleasantly old and slightly worn.” Also it can be defined as “denoting or relating to furniture or soft…

    LeRedBaron on Writing

    Hello , DCPL readers! Today I’m going to talk not about reading, but writing. When I was younger I read a lot. I dreamed constantly about fantasy worlds, and in fourth grade my teacher had us do creative writing, and my ideas moved to the paper. I didn’t share them much, mostly because they were all works in progress, and I didn’t want them to be either ruined or lost, and I couldn’t work on…

    By: Christy V. Temple           Have you recently been let go from a job and now are trying to find a new one? Even though the stats would tell us that unemployment is down in this area it is still very hard sometimes to find a decent job making a fair wage.

    Spring has Sprung: Get Your Seeds at the Library!

    By: Christy V. Temple Ahh, spring is finally here and I am so happy! I will admit that even though our winter this year wasn’t nearly as bad as they have been in the past I am still glad that it is officially over. Now, this doesn’t mean we still won’t probably have a few cold snaps here and there at least through the end of April or early May. It’s just wonderful to know…

    Fablehaven by Mull, Brandon: Book Review

    by Caleb- Tech Tutor Volunteer One of my all time favorite book series is Fablehaven. Writing a blog post without spoilers would be hard, but I’ll keep the spoilers until the end. This series is about a brother and sister, Seth and Kendra, who visit their mysterious grandparents and discover a huge secret! Sounds pretty  generic, right? Well, maybe it is: the protagonist visits their mysterious relative that hasn’t been in their life for about…

    The Ides of March and other favorites

    By: Christy V. Temple The Ides of March are upon us and I for one am so very grateful. I know that this winter so far has not been that bad at all but we’ve still had some dreary days and I’ll just be glad when we get those behind us. I think I have a solar brain and when the sun doesn’t shine a lot my brain goes into hibernation. Anyway, there are a…

    A Chocolate lovers dream

    By: Christy V. Temple As Valentine’s Day approaches again this year, let us take time to stop and smell the proverbial roses and taste that seductively sweet concoction known as chocolate. Chocolate by all accounts is probably the number one selling candy in the world. We see it everywhere in almost every store. The smell and the taste are unrivaled by anything else on the landscape. There is just something so irresistible about this decadent…

    Tax Time is here again

    By: Christy V. Temple Well, it’s that time of the year again when our employers start sending us those wonderful W-2’s in the mail and Uncle Sam has his arms outstretched to receive all of our money. Ahem, perhaps not all of our money, but generally more than what we would normally want to part with. As much as we would all rather not have to pay income taxes, for most of us it just…
