Can you feel it? The chill in the air, the excitement for the holiday season? The hope for a better year to come? 

This month we are excited to highlight both fun and serious topics. On second floor, we have a fun display of the Top 10 graphic novels for teens. As our graphic novel collection grows, see what's new in the New Books section in the 741.5 call number area. 

New year, new you! Not that you aren't perfect the way you are! These books explore some ways in which you can find happiness, or tackle self-help topics. This display will be up through January on the 2nd floor. Jump start the year with these ideas.

On the first floor, we have a display on Human Rights, always an important topic. Check out the QR code on the display to our eBook spotlight this month too. We also continue with the Wellness display, which will be moving to another entrance for next year. 

Want to "WOW" with your cookie skills this holiday season? Look no further than the "Give me the cookies and nobody gets hurt" display. From basic to gourmet, these have cookie recipes good enough to gift. To go with those cookies, take a look at the Cold Weather Crafts in front of Circulation. Nothing better when you are indoors than eating cookies, sipping tea, and being creative.

Need a short story to go with your crafting and cookies? Check out "Short Stories for Short Days" by the reference desk. 

Look for new displays starting in January and February.
