“In the spring, I have counted 136 different
kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.”
~ Mark Twain ~
The weather might be unpredictable, but not so for your Lamppost! Oh no…we are here to serve your reading, listening, and viewing needs every day of every year! So whether you are on the lookout for Christian or just good clean adult and childrens’ fiction, nonfiction, books on CD, movies, or courses on various life topics on CD or DVD, we are your one-stop shop!
Do you have some “littles” at home? If so, I recommend the book Everyone A Child Should Know by Clare Heath-Whyte. This delightful volume includes over 50 biographies of well…and not so well…known people throughout history who have had an impact on the Christian faith. Biographies are simple and concise and contain some little-known (at least to this librarian!) facts and subjects range from Johann Sebastian Bach to Martin Luther to Eric Liddell to Billy Graham and many more. In my humble opinion, any family with children ages 2 to 8 should own a copy of this book in their homes, but for now you can check it out for FREE at your Lamppost.
In other news, I have been ordering LOTS of new kids’ fiction and nonfiction and some new adult fiction, including a great Watervalley trilogy by Jeff High. (If you like Jan Karon’s Mitford books, you’ll be a fan of these).
And on the subject of kids, it’s almost REGISTRATION time for our very popular CHILDRENS’ NO STRESS SUMMER READING CLUB! Stay tuned!
We love JESUS and READING….and we put the two together in a great library for you at the Lamppost. Our delight is to light up your world with reading as we light your way to HIM!
Come “check us out” this week!
