We encourage you to write to us describing your thoughts on our library. Linda Bloomfield recently took a few minutes to send us this wonderful email which we would like to share with you.
"I am now back in Florida and looking forward to the Music Club presentation as well as Dr. Cohen's lecture. As for the library, I've always been passionate about them.  I can't remember a time in my life when I did not read and cannot fathom a world without books.  I love the smell and feel of this book repository.  I love roaming through the rooms and shelves filled with knowledge and wonder and fantastic stories to take me to other worlds and into other people's lives."

​Linda's email in its entirety has been added to our blog​.

Carthage By Joyce Carol Oates

​Review by Helen Spindler

Let the great world spin.jpg

Most readers are familiar with the American writer Joyce Carol Oates, either because they have followed her career for 40 years as I have or because as high school or college students they were assigned her most famous  and much anthologized short story, "Where are you going, Where have you been?" I had decided to review her latest book, Carthage, before realizing that this is Elder Americans Month. Oates is nearly 76 years old and still producing books at about one a year, qualifying her for recognition this month.
I have not liked or enjoyed many of her books, but those that I did (With Shuddering Fall, them and We Were the Mulvaneys) entranced me. Carthage is one that will stay with me a long time. It simply could be described as a story about the effects on a teenage daughter and her family members when she goes missing. Read More​​​​
