New Books for a New Summer

Before you head out this Memorial Day weekend, stop by the library (but remember our hours) to check out a new book or two. This is the perfect weekend to relax with a book at the beach. So here are a few to get you started:

We have a huge selection of religion books from which to choose, including: Freeing the Body, Freeing the Mind: Writings on the Connections Between Yoga and Buddhism by Michael Stone

And for you sports fans and media enthusiasts, try Those Guys Have All the Fun: Inside the World of ESPN by James A. Miller or America's Game: The Epic Story of How Pro Football Captured a Nation by Michael MacCambridge.

If you are following the election this fall, try Party Politics in America by Marjorie Randon Hershey for a good introduction. And may we also suggest Campaign Rules: A 50-State Guide to Campaigns and Elections in America by Nina Kasniunas.

Do we have any music lovers? Then try:
