Magazine Moments is a feature from Eileen in our Technical Services department. In addition to many other duties, Eileen receives and processes all of the magazines for our collection. She gets to see everything that’s new and exciting in these magazines before anyone else, so she’s offered to share some of what caught her eye this month in Magazine Moments.

The article includes a brief description of each book in addition to its title. The December issue can be found in the Adult Services magazine area in the Library. If it is checked out, the magazine can also be found in the Zinio Magazine collection, available online 24/7, and free with a TPL card. I enjoy having access to the magazine, for free, using my computer at home. I hope you find a book that is right for you or for someone you know!
