100 Notable Books

Need some holiday gift ideas? Looking for a recently published book to read? The New York Times 100 notable books for 2007 is available to read online. The print edition of the Book Review is available to check out from the Periodicals Pavilion on the 2nd floor of the library.

Little Heathens, reviewed in July (click on the link to read the review), is written by a local author, Millie Armstrong. It tells the story of her hard luck but joyful childhood in 1930's rural Iowa. There are lots of recipes and remedies. I especially like the Applesauce Cake recipe. She will be at the library April 16, 2008, to talk about her book. If you would like to reserve a copy of her book to read or any book, please call the library(408) 615-2900 or look for it in the library's catalog.
