Do You Find School Boring?

Well then, you might try enrolling in either Master Dreadthorn's School for Wayward Villains or Blatt School for the Insanely Gifted. Granted, you must be the child of a notorious evil entity, such as Dracula, The Big Bad Wolf, or a warlock and be lacking in evil to normally qualify for entry into the former school, but heck, you could always give it a shot. "Gifted" has a lot of definitions. The deciding factor for entry into the later school is that you have the ability to invent something the headmaster might want to steal from you, thereby increasing his fame, fortune, and power — but you don't know this of course. Trust me, if you do have the opportunity to attend one of these schools, you will gain a whole new perspective on education.

Villain School : good curses evil by Stephanie S. Sanders — Join Rune, Jez, and Wolf Junior as they try to succeed at a nearly impossible Plot in order to avoid being expelled for not being bad enough.

The School for the Insanely Gifted by Dan Elish — Wild rides, literally, are in store for you with Daphna, Harkin, and Cynthia as they embark on an international search for Daphna's missing mother and prepare for the school's upcoming "Insanity Cup" competition. Don't miss this action-packed adventure fantasy. If you liked The Mysterious Benedict Society, you will love this for sure.

Fast, fun, reads, both of these weird school books are sure to please!

Computor Classes

Morning, Do you offer your computer classes for non residents? Thank you Sandy

Does the east/west entry drive need a speed limit sign?


Does the east/west entry drive (specifically where patrons have access to the north/south crossing to the CPL) need speed bumps or a speed sign?

At just about 3pm today (Tues. 10/25/2011) I observed a library employee speed rather rapidly through this intersection. This seems to be an unsafe practice as it could put patrons in jeopardy (including me!).

Sorry to say, I have seen this sort of thing before. I am sorry to say I don't have a video of it, but will be carrying my video camera when visiting the CPL next time and after that.

Thank You.


requesting Library Connections via e-mail

I can't figure out where on your web-site I can sign up. Help! Or just put my info in and it will be done. 25149 00103 5860 Thank you.


Please tell me how to sign up to receive my newsletter via email. I can't find that option on the website. Thanks.


I would very much appreciate it, if the budget cuts exclude tissues. It is the flu/cold season, & tissues would be of most usefulness.

Easy Chapter Books

I am looking for suggestions of EARLY CHAPTER BOOKS for my son. He likes the Dinosaur Cove series you have, for example. (I purchased them myself as well!) Any other EASY series you can suggest? Thanks!

Computer classes

Does the library offer any computer classes for high school aged students?

Babysitting Class

Hello, My son took the babysitting class offered at the library last Saturday and this todayday. My understanding was that the participants would be certified in first aid, but my son said the teacher today said they would not be certifying the students. Can you please clarify? Thanks, Erin Skaff

Magic Tree House

Please shelve by number. It is much harder to find the books by title; I don't know what title I am looking for--only which numbers to read next. Thank you.

Teacher looking for a similar book

I am a first grade teacher and I am starting my maps unit. I was looking for Mouse Views: What the Class Pet Say by Bruce McMillan. I could not find it through the online catalog and I was wondering if you have something similar to this book. The book is about the class pet mouse's perspective of the class room and the children are to identify the objects from this point of view. Thank you!

Thank You Steve Jobs

Like the rest of the world, we are mourning the loss of Apple founder Steve Jobs. His vision has transformed our lives, from computers, smart phones, to music and movies. President Obama remarked that "Steve was among the greatest of American innovators — brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it." We are forever indebted to the creativity of Steve Jobs.

Poems and Fingerplay Copyright

Some teachers from a local church are writing curriculum for a school in Liberia and would like to include some poems and fingerplays that are on your library's website. They are concerned about copyright issues, and I was unable to find copyright information with the resources at the URL /teller/poemsa.html. Are these poems and fingerplays public domain? If not, do you know where I can find copyright information for them? Rebecca Kilby Reference Librarian USC Upstate

Discussion of wine related books done last year.

Could you please send me the list of the books that were discussed in this series. Thank you

Resume Changes for the Unemployed

-Would you consider adding to your programs several more time offerings for rewriting resumes? It can mean the difference in standing out or just blending in when there are so many applicants for each position. In my case I had a very specific curriculum for my major but many years in the field and life experience as well. I'd like to know how to situate these in a resume. Thank you for your consideration!


the book is called Miss Lina's Ballerinas by Grace Maccarone. it will be loved by any little girl. very melodic

Good book about history for kids

Sweet Land of Liberty Gingrich, Callista

sanitizing wipes

As flu and cold season nears, it might be compassionate to supply sanitary wipes at the computer stations. Our tax dollars seem, to me, to include public health, safety and welfare. Thanks!

new background colors on CPL website

You sure want to make it hard for me. Every Monday I review the new books in the CPL collection. I see this 'crazy C' - then I see grey background and blue print. It really makes it hard to read as the crazy 'C' distracts and really doesn't make sense (yeh, I know it is supposed to mean Canton) but with all the extra dog bones, it makes it hard to read what I wish to read. Blue print on a grey-blue background does not cut it. Please consider (soon) going back to what can be read - like what you are reading from me - black on white. Thank you.

Golf -Putting

The title of the book I am requesting is ; Unconcious Putting by Dave Stockton. I think this would be helpful to many golf ers who read to improve! Thanks, Steve
