    Job Resources @ DCPL

    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. Times are still tough in many respects and finding a job that is just the right fit can take some unique maneuvering strategies.…

    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…

    Listen, Learn, Remember Their Names

    By: Maggie Riney Think of the strongest person you know. What characteristics does he or she possess? Do they face adversity without doubt? Do they stand alongside the oppressed when the world seemingly turned its back? Do they stand firm in their beliefs? Holocaust survivor and author Fred Gross contains all of these qualities and many more. In his moving memoir, One Step Ahead of Hitler: A Jewish Child’s Journey through France, Gross recants his…

    Check out Kentucky Libraries Unbound & OverDrive

    By: Christy V. Temple We’re starting a New Year and that generally means we are looking at changing things up to have a fresh start. There are many areas in life where we can look at improving ourselves including fitness, health, money, relationships, etc. However, sometimes we don’t think about changing up some of the more fun aspects of our lives either. There are times where you may feel like you are stuck in a…

    2017: Financial New Year’s Resolutions

    By: Christy V. Temple Well, it’s that time of the year again to say goodbye to the old and to welcome in the new. I know this year has had a lot of ups and downs for me personally but that’s the great thing about a new year. This means we all get a chance for a fresh start to see how we can make the next year even better. Granted, we don’t have control…

    BEST OF 2016: Taryn Norris, Public Services

    Our “Best Of 2016” series will be a bit different than most. Rather than having the staff write about things released this year, we’ve elected to allow anything they’ve listened to/played/read/watched this year that they’ve enjoyed. Favorite programs we’ve hosted also might make lists as well. Our second installment comes to us from Taryn Norris of our Public Services. The two reviews listed below are just a couple children’s books (one picture book and one…
