  • Endangered species: where to find current information

    We've always found it difficult to collect print items that have current lists of endangered species. Thanks to the internet, we no longer have to.

  • Reasons why the world won't end in 2012

    There's a lot of hype right now about the Mayan calendar, but it's interesting to note that none of it is coming from experts in Mesoamerican studies. In fact, it all seems to be coming from people trying to sell something, from books to movie tickets to emergency supplies. A couple of sites...

    Every three weeks we have a Lobby Book Display at Central Library on a different theme or topic. Some topics are naturally more popular than others. However, "Laugh Out Loud" in the month of March was such a favorite that we found it difficult to keep books on the display. The books were fiction...

  • LibGuides from HowStuffWorks

    I've always been a sucker for dropping by HowStuffWorks to see entertaining how-to's. After all, you never know when you might be called upon to build a straw bale house or explain to your 7-year-old how a Star Wars light saber appears to be real in a movie but she's not going to see a working...

  • Physics got you down?

    I came across this little bit of interesting hip-hop this morning and had to share. It looks as though some intrepid internet diva has decided to lay out in detail what the CERN -operated Large Hadron Collider is intended to do.
