    Super Bowl: A Time to Indulge

    By: Christy V. Temple Okay, it’s that time of the year again when all eyes turn toward the first Sunday in February to see who will win the coveted title for the Super Bowl. This year’s 52nd Super Bowl will be played at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota starting at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, February 4th, 2018. The Philadelphia Eagles will go head-to-head with The New England Patriots which should make for an interesting game.…

    New Year, New You

    By: Christy V. Temple It’s a new year, it’s a new you, or so they say. Each and every year millions of people decide to make so-called New Year’s resolutions and most of them probably fall flat before the end of January. I know I have often lamented over the years that you can always tell its January because each one of the local fitness centers is absolutely overrun with people deciding that they are…

    BEST OF 2017: Maggie Riney, Reference

    Our “Best Of 2017” 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. This one comes to us from the Reference Department’s Maggie Riney. Stranger Things 2 For me, the best MEDIA I have consumed in 2017 was Stranger Things season 2.…

    BEST OF 2017: Christina Clary, Kentucky Room

Favorite programs we’ve hosted also might make lists as well. This one comes to us from Christina Clary. So 2017 happened. Let’s just move on from that. May 2018 find you a good cardiac doctor and/or therapist! Most of…

    BEST OF 2017: Ryan Henry, Youth Services Librarian

    Our “Best Of 2017” 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. This one comes to us from our Youth Services Librarian, Ryan Henry. Get Out Rarely does a horror movie provide intelligent social commentary like Jordan Peele’s “Get Out.” Slow-paced,…

    BEST OF 2017: Erin Waller, Library Director

    Our “Best Of 2017” 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 our director, Erin Waller. Baskets (FXX) One of the least “talked about” but best television shows being presently made. Louie Anderson gives…

    A Season of Giving and Hope

    By: Christy V. Temple Well, here we are again. Christmas is fast approaching and as always I feel a little hurried and rushed. I keep telling myself every year that I will try to get things done earlier so as not to feel quite so stressed at this time in December. Oh well, there is a saying that my husband tells me every so often and it goes something like this, “the best laid plans…

    Top 15 bestsellers in nonfiction

    By: Christy V. Temple Okay, it’s the end of the month of November and I thought I would do things a little differently this time for my end-of-month blog. Instead of me waxing poetic about a particular topic of my choosing or discussing one of our many databases that we have available to the public, I thought I would instead give a listing of the top 15 bestsellers in nonfiction for the week ending December…

    3M Cloud: A Super easy way to download ebooks

    By: Christy V. Temple Are you interested in checking out an ebook but it seems too hard to do? I understand your frustration. Sometimes the ebook databases that are used have lots more steps to have to go through than what most people are accustomed to have to use. If this is the case, then I have the perfect answer for you. How about trying out the Daviess County Public Library’s 3M Cloud database that…

    November, A Time for Thanksgiving

    By: Christy V. Temple It’s truly hard to believe that we have just passed over the threshold for the month of November. Where have all the other months gone? I mean really, wasn’t it just July 4th yesterday? Anyway, any time I think it’s going to take forever for something to get here such as a vacation, holiday, etc. I have come to the conclusion that I am now very wrong. The moments in our…
