Nick Schenkel's Book Reviews on WBAA
ESCAPE VINTAGE LONDON!
Traveling books are among the most popular checked out of public libraries, and today's books are unique variations on the normal "where to go and eat" guides. Escape London is for the London traveler or native, looking for quainter locations outside the busy city. The Rough Guide to Vintage London explores the alternative spots within the city, alive with food, fashion, and culture. The combination of these books cover the traveling needs for any tourist. West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel has a review.
Little Free Libraries and Book Drops
CULTIVATING A COMMUNITY OF READERS
The West Lafayette Public Library is proud to announce the opening of a neighborhood Little Free Library and a walk-up library book return box in both Lommel Park and Lincoln Park (seen in the photo above) in West Lafayette.
Working with the West Lafayette Parks and Recreation Department, with funding from North Central Health Services (NCHS), the West Lafayette Library is expanding the network of library service points in West Lafayette.
The book drops and the little free libraries are now available for use in both parks. Please use and enjoy these new West Lafayette Library services!
