The Next Big Library Read is Here!

From March 16-30, OverDrive's Big Library Read is back with the eBook format of Art of the Pie. Author Kate McDermott, who learned to make pie from her Iowa grandmother, has taught the time-honored craft of pie-making to thousands of people. In Art of the Pie, she shares her secrets to great crusts (including gluten-free options), fabulous fillings, and to living a good life. 

During the Big Library Read, the digital version of this book will be available to all library customers to download for free. Art of the Pie can be read on all major computers and devices. Like all of our eBooks, it will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, so there are never any late fees. 

Read a sample of Art of the Pie below, listen to an interview with the author, or download the reading group guide for more.

So I have this project...

"Oh, by the way... "

Those were always the words my parents dreaded hearing when my brother and I were growing up. Usually, because it meant that one, or both of us, forgot about an upcoming project. Luckily, for us and my parents, we usually remembered sooner rather than later—but sometimes we did push it kind of close.

It’s not uncommon for parents and kids to come rushing into the library the night before a project is due looking for information and inspiration—but have no fear! We have some amazing project books here at the library that can help out students in just this situation. My booklist by no means has every book that would help, but it features some of the lesser known ones. Now, without any further procrastination, check out my "So, I have this project..." booklist.
