Tokyo 2020 above Olympic rings, with the 0 crossed out and a 1 placed over it.

The Olympics are Coming!

Growing up with one television and 3 main channels, I learned to enjoy watching sports programs with my father.  He always tuned in to the Olympics and we cheered on the medalists from the USA. 

I remember amazing athletic skills and record-breaking performances. I especially enjoyed watching gymnastics, synchronized swimming, and horse jumping and dressage.

Time Flies! Spend it With These New Titles From JCPL!

Twenty years is a long time, but the older I get the faster time goes. Time flies; that is the phrase used when we can’t fathom how quickly the days have passed. For example, I remember when the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling was introduced, and became such a hot item that the reserve list was as long as my arm. Well, I’m short, but the list was really LONG.

What's In Your Wallet? If It's Your JCPL Card, Check Out These New Adult Fiction Titles!

What’s in YOUR wallet? This is a question asked by a popular celebrity on a current TV commercial advertisement. In our house the question happens to have more to do with what’s in your pocket than what’s in your wallet.

Cool & Creative Adult Fiction, Available Now @ JCPL!

When ‘ugh…’ is the best word that you can come up with to describe your feelings about a situation, you know it’s not good. I am referring to Old Man Winter, of course, which could be described with these words: rain, sleet, snow, blow, repeat, all with temperatures that could freeze an Alaskan.

Eat, Read and Be Merry This December With a Good Read From JCPL!

Christmas is for kids. Making lists of their heart’s desires and dreaming of all the presents under the tree consumes them in the month of December. For adults, I believe it’s all about the food. Great meals and sweet treats; that’s what the month of December is about for adults, and it turns out that for once, I am right!

Fact or Fiction? Fiction of Course...New @ JCPL!

Sometimes it’s hard to separate fact from fiction. We’ve heard the term ‘fake news’ frequently of late, which leads us to believe the catch phrase, “Believe only half of what you see and none of what you hear.”
