    Always wonderful news when ground is broken for a new library.

    Same thing happens at my library, Tim as far as the computer room. I find it pretty ironical.

    Congratulations, I love seeing new libraries being built.

    I am very fortunate to live an a community that values public spaces, including libraries. In recent years two new libraries have been built in my area. One is part of a community center about 5 minutes from my home. It is a very nice and well stocked library and is attached to a community center, teen center, full health club, indoor pool, indoor basketball courts and indoor track. I have been a member of the health club since it opened. The new main library in downtown Vancouver is massive and includes an outdoor deck on the fourth floor with views of the Columbia river. and much or Portland. The photos are of the downtown library.FVRL 01.jpgFVRL 02.jpgFVRL 03.jpg

    Question for all y'all: What are your sources for book tours? How do you know when an author is coming to your town to get scribbly with it? I'm hoping to start catching authors as they come through Taxland. If they come through. I used to beg Joe Lansdale until the RO.

    Mostly the author's emails you register for or their website.

    Sign up, too, for e-newsletters / email alerts from your regional bookstores and be sure to always check their Events mentions.

    Thanks everyone for the tips! And thank you Brian for the link! I should have made time to have a beer with Brad and Joe Hill in Milwaukee. I want to remedy that moving forward and meet these incredible writers.

    Most welcome! I'd think you'd get some big names coming through a city of your size.

    Today I got White Bizango by Stephen Gallagher. I ordered this book from the Subterranean Press Low Stock sale. There is a tiny little "glob" of something on the back of the dustjacket. Any tips on how to safely remove it? I hope my post doesn't get lost in this thread.

    I'm not over there anymore but on tdt.org there is a great thread about cleaning books somewhere. Maybe a current member over there could point you in the right direction to that thread.

    Books saved me from a rough childhood. Gave me confidence to face the tough things in the real world.
