It's been a year since my husband and I had 36 solar catchers attached to our roof, and we're still very excited about them.

After leaving work recently, I took my daughter to the Princeton University Art Museum to browse the collections. Our first stop was on the lower level where we viewed the 12th-century celadon glazed stoneware called Melon ewer with lotus-flower design.

In an era of rapid technological change, it often feels impossible to keep up. Every year there are new devices and new ways of doing things. Even those of us who work in IT sometimes feel overwhelmed!

You are looking at one of the most powerful reading super heroes available in the modern world. Hyperbole aside, there is a little magic and super-heroism in the job that Emma and her owner Joe Turner do for us at the Princeton Public Library. They are our very own Reading Therapy Dog team and they provide an important and heartwarming service to our younger patrons. For children struggling to read, a therapy dog such as Emma can help break a cycle of frustration and failure.
I’ve been inspired. Let me back things up for a minute. I have always loved to cook; In fact I briefly thought about going to culinary school long before library school. I have been collecting cookbooks for years. Most of the time I read them in the same way I would read a favorite fiction novel. Then I place them back on the shelf to collect dust.
