From the Library – Hoopla Huddle Book Discussion Group’s December 2021 Selection is The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

The Hoopla Huddle Book Discussion Group will read The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney for their December 2021 meeting:

BOOK DESCRIPTION: This is a story about the power of family, the possibilities of friendship, the ways we depend upon one another, and the ways we let one another down. In this tender, entertaining, and deftly written debut, Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney brings a remarkable cast of characters to life to illuminate what money does to relationships, what happens to our ambitions over the course of time, and the fraught yet unbreakable ties we share with those we love.

The Hoopla Huddle Book Discussion Group Monday will meet (via Zoom) to discuss The Nest on Monday, December 20, at 6:00 PM.

If you’d like to attend the discussion, please register now through our Event Calendar. You will receive an email with the login information for Zoom before the meeting begins.

You can borrow a copy of The Nest now through Hoopla as an ebook or an audiobook. Copies of the book are also available through our Online Catalog.

From the Library – NEXT WEDNESDAY (11/17/21): New York State Censuses: You Won’t Believe What’s Hiding In There! During the Next Meeting of the IPL Genealogy Group

Jeanette Sheliga, a Genealogy Lecturer from Western New York, will join the IPL Genealogy Group for their last meeting of 2021 to give a presentation on New York State Censuses: You Won’t Believe What’s Hiding In There!

New York State conducted ten State Censuses between 1825-1925. Some of the questions asked for the State Censuses provide details prior to the beginning of civil registrations and decades before a similar question was asked on the US Census. If you have New York State genealogy research to do, this is a record collection that you’ll want to familiarize yourself with.

New York State Censuses: You Won’t Believe What’s Hiding In There! will be held online via Zoom on Wednesday, November 17, at 7:00 PM. If you’d like to attend this virtual meeting, please register now through our Event Calendar. Participants will receive an email with the login information for Zoom before the meeting begins.
