Ice Cream, Jazz & Sunshine on Library Lawn

Happy Historic Waltham Month! The Library joined in the celebration with an Ice Cream Social on the lawn last Wednesday sponsored by the Friends.

The crowd was treated to good-time music from the Squirrel Hill Olde Tyme Jazz Band, Lizzy’s ice cream, and the most beautiful day of the summer so far. Members of the Library Friends were on hand to share information about the wonderful variety of free programs and extras they provide to support our City Library.

We were delighted to be outside the library on that beautiful evening! But please remember you’re always welcome inside: the library is open 7 days a week, 4 nights a week, and you can visit us online any time you like.

Want a recommendation?

I’m a very picky reader so when someone asks for a book recommendation, I really hope that he/she either is a fan of at least one of my favorite authors, is interested in topics that I like to read about, or is open to checking out new authors.  However, this isn’t always the case.

When I don’t know what to recommend, I visit Novelist. Once I’m there, I simply enter an author’s name, click on Author Read-alikes or Recommended Reads, and then I’m presented with many possible books.

If you want to check out Novelist, you can access it at home or in the library from our Electronic Database page.

Besides recommendations for all ages, Novelist also gives detailed information about authors and works, book club discussion guides and questions, and curriculum outlines for teachers.
