Total.Randomness.


*Did you know that the word "trivia" is derived from the Latin expression for "three ways" & meant the spot where three roads cam together? People would often meet & stop to chat at such crossroads. Eventually the talk itself came to be called trivia.
*A patron telephoned asking if the library had any of William Shakespeare's books on tape and, if so, were any of them actually read by Mr. Shakespeare himself?
*A common myth is that "kangaroo" was an aboriginal phrase for "I don't understand." According to this legend, Lieutenant Cook and naturalist Sir Joseph Banks were exploring the area when they happened upon the animal. They asked a nearby local what the creatures were called. The local responded "Kangaroo", meaning "I don't understand you", which Cook took to be the name of the creature. The Kangaroo myth was debunked in the 1970s by linguist John B. Haviland in his research with the Guugu Yimithirr people. The word "kangaroo" actually derives from the Guugu Yimithirr word gangurru, referring to grey kangaroos.

December Notes



Tis the season to…drive around and look at lights!  One of my favorite activities in December is loading up the car with cookies and my spicy hot chocolate (a little cinnamon and a dash of cayenne!) and drive around looking at all the pretty Christmas lights. No matter what you’re celebrating, from Christmas to Chanukkah, birthdays to baby showers, SPL has something to help make your seasons bright.  We’ve got crafts and cookbooks, stories to read by the fire, magazines to help you find that perfect winter wedding dress, or whittle toys for the grandkids.
Most of all, it’s a time to celebrate you, our patrons! We’re rolling out a very special gift for you this month, a new way to use our online catalog – right on your phone.We’ll keep you connected 24/7/365 to the things you need to teach, guide, and just plain entertain you.  Stop by and grab a book to go.  Happy Holidays from all of us at SPL to all of you – our best gift.
