Woodstock – 40th Anniversary

WoodstockThe 40th Anniversary of Woodstock is coming up this weekend.  That magical event took place on August 15-17, 1969. In honor of this special anniversary, we put together a Woodstock display of Books, DVDs and CDs (on the First floor) including outstanding new material:  Woodstock: Three Days That Rocked the World by Mike Evans, Paul Kingsbury, and Martin Scorsese;  The Road to Woodstock by Michael Lang;  Back to the Garden: The Story of Woodstock by Pete Fornatale and Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music Director’s Cut (DVD 2009). The display also features the music of the Woodstock performers. Why not check out a CD or two and experience a little of that Woodstock magic?  A complete list of the performers and a song list of the three day concert is available for you to take home.

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.

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!
