‘Owhwhe: August 25, 2009


By Kristin Freeman, Kim Yerton Memorial Library

We are having beautiful late summer days with sun and warm days with the bookend cool mornings and evenings. These are, next to spring days, my favorite time of year here in the river valleys. The garden harvest is filling baskets and it is so much more pleasant to process and can the produce when the temperatures drop a little and the breezes blow up the rivers.

 We will have three quiet/no program weeks at the library. The KYML staff will be working with everyone who is either returning to school or just beginning their studies at College of the Redwood as they get library cards and learn to use the library databases and the on-line catalogue to request books for their class work and term papers. We have some wonderful and most helpful databases available to all library card holders at our web address, www.humlib.org. If you are a backyard mechanic the Chilton database will allow you to download and print instructions for all or your maintenance and repair needs for your vehicles. Remember that if you need assistance with using the databases our staff is available to give you that help; just come by during our regular open hours and we’ll be happy to walk you through the web site identified above.

Story times for the local pre-schools continue at KYML. If your program is not making regular visits to the library for this special time, please call and arrange a time that is convenient for you and available on the KYML calendar. “Share A Story” will begin Sept. 23 at 6 pm. Watch for flyers and an announcement of the theme here in ‘Owhwhe. Fall always feels like a new beginning at KYML and the staff is excited to be a part of the learning and reading life of the people of the river valleys.

 My current read is a book whose title attracted my attention. I was not familiar with the authors nor had I heard of the book before reading the title on a suggested new book list.

The Guernsey, Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Anne Shaffer and Annie Barrows has been a delightfully well written, interesting and captivating book for me to read these last really warm days of summer. Do you have a good book to read? Why not get yourself a comfortable spot, relax, open that book and READ. READ, READ!
