Everyone likes to Reminisce
We've got a new magazine on our shelves called Reminisce. Now celebrating 20 years in publication, Reminisce is North America's top-selling nostalgia magazine. It "brings back the good times” of the 1930s, ’40s, ’50s, ‘60s and early ’70s. A variety of true, heart-felt stories are mainly written by the readers, not professional writers, which makes the magazine unique.
Each issue is packed with fascinating vintage black and white photographs and early color slides. Most photos are sent in by readers who’ve searched through family albums or attics to share the best from their past. Fun-to-read short and feature-length memories bring smiles, laughter and even poignant tears to readers of all ages. Memories span every subject…from the corner store and soda fountain, outhouses and old-time remedies, Model Ts to fifties Fords with fins, early radio and TV, surviving the Depression, World War II, fashion fads and prices from the past. The real thrill of reminiscing comes when someone reads a memory or sees a long-forgotten item and realizes: “Hey! I remember that!”
We've got the December/January 2013 issue on our current shelf. Browse through this enjoyable magazine next time you're at the library. As back issues become available, you'll be able to check out the magazine and bring it home to read.

Adult Programming - the numbers are in!
2012 was a banner year for adult program attendance at the library. Attendance rose 25% over 2011 numbers. A total of 52 programs were held for adult audiences, including subjects as diverse as living history, self-improvement, crafts, films, history, current events, travel and nature. In all, 1,028 people came to the library to enjoy free programs for purposes of self-education, recreation and/or the exchange of ideas. Our most well-attended program was "Owls: Watchers of the Night" held on April 10, 2012.
In addition to special programs and events, the Cover to Cover Book Discussion Group; the Library Knitting Circle; Wordsmiths Writing Workshop and A Taste of Poetry meet monthly or bi-monthly at the library, and a variety of computer classes on Monday nights and/or Friday mornings are offered on a regular basis.
