What do Movie Gallery, Blockbuster, and West Coast Video have in common? Each of these companies was once in the DVD rental business. When the entertainment industry shifted due to consumer preferences, they became obsolete. Why weren’t they nimble enough to pivot when new technology changed the entertainment landscape? It was because they were in the DVD industry; not the entertainment industry. These giants fell for thinking too small.

What makes you decide whether you will listen to another person's point of view or close your mind to it? It may depend on how strongly you feel about the issue, the way it is presented, or even the person presenting it.

After all these years, I am still impressed by people who work in a library. This morning, I witnessed another example of how our staff practice what we preach when it comes to doing thorough research on a topic to come to a reasonable conclusion.

In these trying times… just kidding. Well, I’m not really kidding, but nobody needs another article that starts that way, so let’s skip the intro and go right to the body - literally.

Depending on your personal circumstances, you may be in your first, second, or third week of sheltering in place. If you are one of our local “essential personnel,” thank you for carrying on for the benefit of all of us. No matter what our current circumstances, we are all having to continually adjust. There is comfort in knowing that no one is judging us for it – we are all in this together, even if it is #AloneTogether.

It wasn’t even noon yet when my oldest daughter sent me a text. “It’s been a long day already…with a few meltdowns.” The luster of homeschooling appears to have quickly faded as my grandkids get used to their new teacher-mom. I needed clarification, though, so I responded by asking “You or the kids?” with an appropriate emoji.

Once upon a time there was a box of books tucked away in an attic. It sat in the dark for years waiting to be discovered by someone who would appreciate the books inside.

It’s that time of year again… when the kids are back in school (or maybe you are!), the socks are back on our feet, and the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte™ begins its annual advertisement ubiquity. As much as I love me a 380-calorie whipped-cream-topped coffee concoction, there are healthier and cheaper ways of celebrating the return of autumn, and one of the easiest is to get your DIY on and start preserving some of that summer produce!

‘Tis the season of the witch! At least, I’ve got witches on the brain because Halloween is rapidly approaching.

Have you ever read such a good book that you immediately wanted more of the same thing? Maybe not the exact same book, but in the absence of a sequel, something similar in style, tone, characterization, or setting.

I have to admit that I was an e-book skeptic when we initially partnered with OverDrive, our electronic books platform, because their software was clunky and difficult to learn, and I didn’t want to read on a screen any more than I already had to. However, several interface and app updates later, OverDrive is infinitely more intuitive and appealing, and I’ve come around to the myriad benefits of both e-books and e-audiobooks. That’s not to say that I don’t still love physical books; an entire shelf of my home bookcase is dedicated to my current Library stash, and few things please me as much as lining the books up neatly, in descending order by height, and admiring “my” very own Library mini-collection. However, I’ve discovered several instances where the electronic versions of titles work better for me than the physical versions.
