Another busy week at the Library. Summer reading is almost over with only this week to go. What a success it has been.
We are pleased to announce, the family of Delbert (Clem) Nuxoll, has graciously donated two of his writings to be placed in the Local Author section of the library. The one, Laughter and tears through my logging years, explains in detail just how logging is done and what equipment he used. His story shows the growth of an industry. The love of his surroundings and of his job comes through in this manuscript as he tells of growing up with rustic logging and coming full term with all the modern equipment of today. He sets his story in and around his friendships with other loggers and family and tells his story of a life as an Idaho logger in the Northwest. If you have not read this one, now is your opportunity. More on the other book next week.
Other "Authentic" new arrivals include, Beautiful Joe, the story of an abused dog, awakens an intense interest, and sustains it through a series of vivid incidents and episodes, each of which is a valuable lesson.
For the kids, A book of Idaho Counties titled Ida tours the 44. Ida's adventures take her back and forth across the state several times as she visits each county in alphabetical order and shares information on each one during her stops. This book was donated by Lori J. Otter, First Lady of Idaho. It is a must if your child will be studying Idaho History this year. A requested book on dog training titled 21 Days to train your dog is on the shelf and ready to be checked out.
