Vogue - The September Issue - 1 Oct 2014


 

Vogue – The September Issue
It’s here – the September issue of Vogue magazine.  Even though we may not religiously follow the fashion of the season, it sure is fun to see what clothing made it down the runways and what the possibilities are for our own wardrobe.

Who can resist staring at the Ralph Lauren collection – the all white is stunning.  Amazon.com/Fashion now has a fall campaign with new outerwear trends.  H&M is affordable and stylish and others who are not always affordable still draw our attention -  like Stella McCartney, Donna Karin, and Ugg boots.

The September issue is thick,  and full of surprises.  Do you have any idea what it takes to put an issue like this together.  If interested at all you must check out “The September Issue”.  This is a non-fiction DVD ( 741.65 September)that is mesmerizing in its detail of every aspect of magazine photography, layout, and journalism.  Definitely a “must see”.

The September issue of  Vogue is in our magazine section just waiting for you to peruse.  Also, “The September Issue” DVD is available for checkout.

Where Did Pilates Go? - 27 Sep 2014


Are you a Pilates enthusiast?  Then you’ve noticed that our Pilates books and DVDs are not in their usual places.  Don’t despair!  The Pilates Method now has its own number in the Dewey Decimal System.   Books are now at 613.7192.  DVDs can be found at DVD 613.7192. 

If you are curious about the Pilates Method, we can help.  In addition to our collection of books and DVDs, we are offering an Introduction to Pilates class led by a certified Pilates instructor.  This class will be held on Tuesday, September 30th at 2:00 pm.  There will be a brief introduction to Joseph Pilates, the creator of the method.  We will discuss the benefits and the core concepts.  Also, what’s the difference between Yoga and Pilates?

After this discussion, we will put the concepts to practice by going through an introductory session of mat Pilates.  This class will not be too strenuous, but will give you a good idea whether the Pilates Method is right for you.  Be sure to wear comfortable clothing, and bring a mat or towel, as we will be on the floor.  

Now that you know where Pilates items can be found, we will end our session by presenting some of the books and DVDs that the library has available for you to borrow. Right now you can find some of these items on display across from the main staircase on the 2nd floor of the library. 

To find our full collection of items about the Pilates Method, look for shelf cards with the "Pilates Girl" pictured above on our book and DVD shelves  at - you know where: 613.7192.  

 


Book Quote Quiz - 20 Sep 2014

He Said/She Said/Who Said? Do you have a guess? 

The following quotes appear in famous children's books. (The book covers are some clues. Answers are at the bottom of the article.)

1. “If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.”

2.  “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”

3.  “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

4.  “It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer.”

5.  “It was all because of his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing great-great-grandfather!”

6.  “There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.”

7.  “I have noticed several times that people don't think I know how to behave even when I'm trying as hard as I can.”

8.  “She thought to herself, "This is now." She was glad that the cozy house, and Pa and Ma and the firelight and the music, were now. They could not be forgotten, she thought, because now is now. It can never be a long time ago.”

9.  “Give a boy - ANY boy - enough time, and he WILL eventually pick his nose!”

12. "George promised to be good, but it is easy for little monkeys to forget."

13.  “At one time, most of my friends could hear the bell, but as years passed, it fell silent for all of them. Even Sarah found one Christmas that she could no longer hear its sweet sound. Though I've grown old, the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe.”

14.  “...you know that a good, long session of weeping can often make you feel better, even if your circumstances have not changed one bit.”
