Cool New Book

If you've ever been interested in presidential pets, you'll have to pick up First Pooch: The Obamas Pick a Pet. This fun book tells the story of the Obama family selecting their Portuguese water dog, Bo. It even tells you a little bit about other pets that lived in the White House! Look for it today in the non-fiction area of the Children's New Book Shelf. Happy reading!

Victorian Is My Passion

I love Victorian mysteries, movies, non-fiction or anything with that flavor or set in that time period. A trifle romantic, a bit goth, always prim and proper up front, but underneath...ooh, so mysterious! Here is a list of titles, some classics, but most not so well known.

Fiction

Kept : a Victorian mystery by D.J. Taylor

Death at Whitechapel : a Victorian mystery by Robin Paige

Defend and betray by A Victorian Mystery Featuring Inspector Monk by Anne Perry

Mrs. Jeffries and the missing alibi by Emily Brightwell

Silent in the grave by Deanna Raybourn

Eva Davis shared a postcard from George Snow. She also said he had emailed that he would not be in attendance at the January meeting.

She then shared an invitation to the Board to join the Association of Library Trustees, Advocates, Friends and Foundations (ALTAFF). This organization is a division of the American Library Association (ALA) which was formed by the merger of the Association of Library Trustees and Advocates (ALTA) and Friends of Libraries U.S.A. (FOLUSA). The membership fee would be $100. The Friends have also been invited to join; they are past members of FOLUSA.
