Borrow a magazine!

Did you know the library subscribes to over 150 magazines? We run the gamut from A to Z...From Ability Magazine (for folks who have a disability) to Zoo Books, and there are lots of titles between. Whether you are interested in parenting (Parents, Parenting), sports (Beckett Baseball, Sports Illustrated), cooking (Bon Appetit, Taste of Home, Gourmet), home repair (Fine Homebuilding, Family Handyman), reading (Bookmark, Pages, Locus, Deadly Pleasures, Romantic Times, etc), money (Fortune, Kiplinger's, Money, Consumer Reports) or many a topic, we probably have something for you! Other libraries in our Sails library sytem might have a magazine you are interested in too, and most libraries lend all but the most current issue. Let us know your interest, and we'll find something for you.
The November issue of Kiplinger's Personal Finance came yesterday, and it is truly a treasure trove of information. It is a "Best of Everything 2006" issue, and I found it fascinating...enough so that I think I'll go out and buy my own copy. It features things like best airfare site, best dark chocolate, best crab cakes, best college town for retirees, best cell phone, best midlife crisis car (it is a Porsche Boxter, if you've got $45,800 at least), best checking account, best customer service, etc.
The Friends are having their annual book sale this weekend, October 13 and 14th. Friends' night (for members only, but you can join at the door) is 5-8 on Friday night. The sale continues to everyone on Saturday from 9-3. Please come and purchase books or movies, audiobooks, etc...and support the Friends in their endeavor to support the library! They provide us with funds for Morningstar, audio books, museum passes, programs for adults and children, summer reading supplies, and much more. The Friends also sell lovely Mansfield afghans and both green and natural color book bags. See you at the sale!
