Leonard Cohen: In Memoriam

There's a lover in the story
But the story's still the same
There's a lullaby for suffering
And a paradox to blame
But it's written in the scriptures
And it's not some idle claim
You want it darker
We kill the flame.

- Leonard Cohen, “You Want it Darker”

Thanksgiving for Kids

Samantha's picture

It's nearly Thanksgiving! A time for family, friends, togetherness, gratefulness, and hopefully, delicious pie! If you are looking for books to share with your family about the holiday, these are a few of my personal favorites. From previously unexplored and detailed looks at the first Thanksgiving to the reasons why the holiday is significant to us today, these books paint an engaging picture of a truly American holiday.

Fall Zen: Books on Meditation and Mindfulness

Late fall can be a stressful time.  We’ve just gotten over a heated election, the days are shorter, and the holidays are fast approaching.  It’s no wonder so many of us are grumpy and tired!  Want to feel more at peace?  Perhaps try to add a little meditation to your daily routine.

New York State of Mind: Cocktails

Chicago and Colorado may rule at craft beer and Kentucky at bourbon, but NYC is the unofficial cocktail capital of the United States.  The streets of Manhattan (not to mention Brooklyn) are littered with hundreds of the most influential cocktail bars in the country- if not the world. To see some of the most popular locales, check out this Eater NYC map with the top 25 bars in New York. 

Empty Nest: What's Next?

From the moment our children are born, we know that someday they will leave us.  But we really don’t think that day will ever come.  Sending the first one off to college or out on their own is heart wrenching; but the last one, well, that changes everything.   

What are you going to do with all of your newly discovered spare time?  The Library is here to help!
