YOU ARE WHAT YOU READ
Barbara M. is showing her gathering skills this week. “I absolutely love Cool Tools: A Catalog of Possibilities by Kevin Kelly. A Thank You to Lois for bringing this book to my attention. It is a modern version of The Whole Earth Catalog filled with solutions to things you never knew you needed solutions for. I’ve already bought one to give as a gift. It’s filled with things I never knew I needed: a JarPop easy jar opener, E.A.R. foam earplugs, a Black and Decker Accu Mark Level. It’s a catalog and so much more with helpful advice like how to keep track of your books and which seat to choose on an airline. It’s an encyclopedia of useful and useless facts, objects and sites guaranteed to keep you glued to your computer for hours and hours.”
You Are What You Read is our “Staff Recommends” GONE WILD and features recommendations from Darien Library staff members. And you don’t have to live in Darien to receive an email with our top picks!

Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking. 

A selection of our favourite floral book covers:

Appy Hour: Dark Sky
Price: $3.99
Having trouble predicting the weather lately? YEAH NO KIDDING. This is not your average weather app though. It will tell you at a glance exactly when it will rain or snow up to an hour in advance! And it will do so in the most beautiful of ways. So ditch the raincoat for that walk in the woods. Or be the envy of all your friends when you produce a golf umbrella in the middle of a freak rainstorm.
