Pat Conroy is Back!

south of broad

It’s been 14 years since he published his last fiction title (Beach Music.)  With today’s release of South of Broad I can gladly welcome him back to the fiction shelves.  South of Broad is a sweeping saga that follows Leopold Bloom King, his friends and family, but most of all Pat Conroy’s beloved Charleston.

Come and swap some titles…today!

What is a Title Swap?
Every quarter, patrons and Readers’ Services librarians gather in front of the fireplace to share titles they’ve enjoyed. Discussion is always lively and refreshments are served. After the title swap, a list of titles mentioned is compiled and made available at the library.

The summer Title Swap will be held today, August 11,  at 1:30 PM on the second floor- all are welcome!

What do you want to read? Please tell us!

Yes or No JacketSometimes our patrons help US find a good read.  I’m just finishing “Yes” or “No”: The Guide to Better Decisions: A story, by Spencer Johnson, MD.  He’s the Coauthor of The One Minute Manager and Who Moved My Cheese (along with Kenneth Blanchard, PhD).

When a patron came in and asked for “all of their books”, it caught my attention.  I had heard of these two books, classics in business management.  But didn’t think that “Average Jane” would find them useful.

These books are quick and light, with simple concepts that stick with you after the book is done.  I’ve read One Minute Manager (more oriented towards work or organizations) and “Yes” and “No” The Guide to Better Decisions (great for anyone). … Now, onto the “Cheese” course.

So, please share your thoughts and questions about books, music, and movies (and more) with us!  Help us build your library collection!
