Registration is still being held for the fall book discussion series, “Writing Wyoming.” The series includes books that depict different aspects of what it means to live in Wyoming. Each writer also explores both the myth and the reality of the people and place. Books are here at the library so be sure to stop by and register. If enough participants are interested, we will follow up this four book series with an informal series that features Wyoming fiction and mystery writers.

New newspaper subscriptions at the library include USA Today, Wyoming Tribune-Eagle, Rapid City Journal, Scottsbluff Star-Herald, Laramie Boomerang, Douglas Budget and the Crawford Clipper/Harrison Sun. The 2006 Legislative Library Funding Amendment is allowing us to offer some things we’ve not been able to do for many years. Several new magazine subscriptions will also begin soon. Be sure to stop in and take a look.

New books include “Blue Screen” by Robert B. Parker, “The Wrong Hostage” by Elizabeth Lowell, “Eye Contact” by Cammie McGovern, “The Saboteurs” by W. E. B. Griffin, “The Husband” by Dean Koontz, “Candles Burning” by Tabitha King, “The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl” by Timothy Egan, “Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community, and War” by Nathaniel Philbrick, “Chi Walking: the Five Mindful Steps for Lifelong Health and Energy” by Danny Dreyer and “Western Places, American Myths : How We Think About the West” edited by Gary Hausladen.

For the young adult, there is “Queen of Babble” by Meg Cabot.

Diane Keaster has two more books for junior readers, “Goldie – the Wise!” and “Chickadee – the Traveler!.”

Our youngest readers will be sure to like “Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa : Partners” by Erica Silverman.
