    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…

    BEST OF 2016: Christina Clary, Kentucky Room

    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 first installment comes to us from Christina Clary, an Associate Library Specialist in our Kentucky Room. This has been a pretty rough year. Like most people, I am…

    Freegal: open your soul to free music

    By: Christy V. Temple Music is the ultimate way of helping us to define any situation or milestone in our lives. You can walk up to most people and ask them about particular aspects of their pasts and what was playing on the radio at that time. Generally speaking, they can probably answer in the affirmative that a particular song was popular during that moment in life. I truly tend to believe the phrase that…

    Handling the Holi-Daze!

    By: Maggie Riney Ah, the holidays. The holidays are a time of generosity, a time of family, and a time to avoid sitting by Aunt Bertha because “No, I’m not dating anyone,” and, “Yes, I did hear that cousin Allie is engaged to a nice investment banker.” While in between sips (who am I kidding, GLASSES) of your mom’s boxed wine and Uncle Kenny’s heated political debate with Great-Aunt Muriel that climate change does, in…

    Gratitude: A Word for All Seasons

    Gratitude, it’s a word that seems to get tossed around a lot sometimes and yet I’m not so sure that the true meaning of the word is known to some. Just for the sake of argument, gratitude, as defined by Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary is “a feeling of appreciation or thanks.” A secondary definition is “the state of being grateful; thankfulness.” It seems as though we don’t seem to have quite enough of this going around…

    All Hallows Eve, beware….

    By: Christy V. Temple It’s that time of the year when fiendish fools and gruesome ghouls depart their hiding places, Skeletons crawl out from the blackest of graves.                         A chilled wind blows through the tops of the tormented trees,  Moaning and wailing pervades the very air you breathe,         And no one is safe from the depths of darkness swirling around your anguished mind. Spooky border clip courtesy of: http://www.clker.com/clipart-spooky-border.html   Ah, Halloween is…

    Football, Fun, and Fantastic Tailgating Foods

    By: Christy V. Temple             It’s that time of the year again when summer has now officially passed into fall and the leaves on the trees will begin turning into their brightly-hued colors of red, orange, and gold. It’s also a time when people start turning to the great outdoors as the weather is starting to cool a little and making time for campfires, hayrides, and all sorts of great activities. One of those greatest…

    Kentucky Libraries Unbound: Take Two

    By: Christy V. Temple Okay, I uploaded to the Daviess County Public Library website the first in my series of blogs about the Kentucky Libraries Unbound consortium around the middle of August. Now, that we are at the end of the month, oh where does the time go, I have decided to provide some additional information to the first primer about using this database that has everything to do with ebooks, audiobooks, and streaming video.…

    Kentucky Libraries Unbound: Take One

    Kentucky Libraries Unbound is a consortium of libraries across the state of Kentucky that has partnered together to provide a wide range of digital formats to library users through each of their individual public libraries as long as they have a library card. Kentucky Libraries Unbound has been around for quite some time now since the Daviess County Public Library has been participating in this consortium since at least 2008. I’m not sure of the…
