What we’re reading (and watching)

Over the next several weeks I’m going to share What We’re Reading (and Watching), books, audiobooks, and even DVD recommendations from the library staff.

Mary Beth raved about A Small Act, a new DVD in our collection. This documentary illustrates the  truly interconnected world in which we live, and is a testament to the powerful, rippling effects that one single action can generate. Watch this trailer to see what it’s all about.

Eileen recommended the DVD series, Lark Rise to Candleford for anyone who is suffering from Downton Abbey withdrawal. This BBC series is an adaptation of Flora Thompson’s memoir of her Oxfordshire childhood, set in the small hamlet of Lark Rise and the wealthier neighbouring market town, Candleford, at the end of the 19th Century. Here’s a link to the BBC website for more info. Thompson’s memoir is also in the library’s collection.

Keep reading–and watching,

~Janice
