Spies among us

Spies are back! 

Modern spies are now tracking down international terrorists while their historical counterparts operate during the world wars or the Cold War.  You’ll find lots of action in these edgy, dark thrillers.

"Black Cow" Root Beer Float Created on August 19, 1893

On August 19, 1893, Frank J. Wisner, owner of Cripple Creek Brewing, served the first root beer float in Cripple Creek, Colorado.  Inspired by the moonlit view of snowcapped Cow Mountain, he added a scoop of ice cream to his Myers Avenue Red root beer and began serving it as the "Black Cow Mountain."  Kids loved it and shortened the name to "Black Cow."  As Paul Harvey might say, "Now you know the rest of the story."  And as a librarian might say, "Stop in and check out some pretty sweet books at your library!"

Bond, James Bond

Those of us who watched the 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony will long remember the James Bond spoof that featured Queen Elizabeth and her corgis.  There’s plenty of time to stop by the library to brush up on your James Bond Trivia before the next Bond film, Skyfall, hits local theaters in November.
