Arboretum Library Summer 2011 E-News
Hello all and welcome newcomers:Many thanks to Jessica Holada, Rayma Harrison, Nancy Beygijanian, Holly Langdon, Ashley Sparks, and Shannon Delaney, our catalogers, who are making lots of items available. This new book list highlights brand new books in the Library as well as great hurdles working through our backlog. Here is a link to the new books (both children’s and others, 388!), magazine articles and websites we’ve cataloged recently.
To sort for just the “brand new” books pick “Descending Order” and “B1 Year”. The sort isn’t perfect, but gives you some since of the new books we’ve added.If you are interested in any of the items on the lists, just let me know and I can help get them for you.If you really want to see Susan’s Wacky World of Plants check out the Magazine Articles. That is where the cutting edge knowledge happens.Here is the list of upcoming books for July-December 2011 for the Reading the Western Landscape Book Group.Our current book for the July meeting is Mary Austin’s Land of Little Rain.
