Library News for July 26, 2016
Have you ever thought of working as a Library Volunteer for a few hours a week? Our Children’s Library is currently in great need of Volunteers during morning hours from Monday through Thursday. It’s quiet work (most times) usually shelving books and shelf-reading (making sure each book is in its correct place). Sometimes Volunteers help patrons find what they are looking for, help answer questions and even phone calls. Being a Volunteer at ACPL is very rewarding work. If you are interested in helping us out, please contact Brian Sherrill or Patty Dalton in the Children’s Library at (931) 484-6790 ext. 228.
Great New Releases!
I’ve Got Sand in All the Wrong Places by Lisa Scottoline & Francesca Serritella Fiction
Here is the seventh book by the dynamic mother and daughter writing team. Together, they take on all subjects, in this treasury of true episodes in daily life: love, dating, sex, pets, food, clothes, writing, travelling, health, hair, and more. Each episode is just a few pages, but conveys the emotion, details, color and mood of an event. Also, both women have a very active funny bone, a no-holds-barred perspective on reality, and the ability to connect with their readers. The result is another book that will have you shaking your head, snickering as you turn the pages, and wishing it wouldn’t end so soon.
Armageddon: How Trump Can Beat Hillary by Dick Morris Non-Fiction
No matter which side of the political spectrum you lean toward - Left, Right or Libertarian; this book presents a multitude of very interesting insights, fresh new dialogue and perspective on what most Americans are now coming to accept as becoming one of the strangest and most bizarre presidential-election cycles in our nation's history. You don't have to like the author, Dick Morris, to appreciate his, at times, uncanny wit and analysis on the state of the odd-ball societal factions and forces that are now gathering for the November 2016 Washington, DC battle. Morris' book is by no means a Republican rally. He simply discusses all the warts and disfigurements of BOTH candidates and allows them "to all hang out” in the open. Nothing is sacred or protected in this candid analysis of the coming 2016 challenge.
Among the Wicked by Linda Castillo Fiction
Chief of Police Kate Burkholder is called upon by the sheriff's department in rural, upstate New York to assist on a developing situation that involves a reclusive Amish settlement and the death of a young girl. Unable to penetrate the wall of silence between the Amish and "English" communities, the sheriff asks Kate to travel to New York, pose as an Amish woman, and infiltrate the community. Kate infiltrates the community and goes deep under cover. In the coming days, she unearths a world built on secrets, a series of shocking crimes, and herself being alone, trapped in a fight for her life.

"It is often said that spaces with plants make you feel better when in fact there is actual scientific proof that this is so," says home-building expert Sabine H. Schoenberg, founder of Sabine’s New House. “Good air leads to better health and well-being and greater productivity." Take the plant called the Money Tree, it purifies air polluted with synthetic chemicals from cleaning products. It has been said by Feng Shui experts that this plant reduces stress and anxiety, and even helps prevent arguments and sleeping disorders. "Believe it or not, plants converting toxins in your home was first studied by NASA says Schoenberg. He continues: "In my house I have multiple giant Peace Lily's which the NASA study points out neutralize all — benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene and ammonia." Note: Before you buy: While most plants are safe to be around, experts recommend doing some research on new plants before bringing them into your home, especially if you have children or pets.
Stingy Schobel Says . . .
Buying tires: base your purchases on the government’s tire-rating system. Grades based on tread wear, traction and heat resistance must be printed on the sidewall and attached to the tire on a paper label. Ask the dealer for the grades of the tires they sell, and buy the highest grade for the lowest price.
