I’m going to assume you know we have a great selection of books, mostly because I’ve been repeating that phrase every week, all summer. So, for right now, that’s a given. This week I want to tell you about two slightly unusual collections that we are spotlighting.
1) We have a good-sized collection of New Age books in very good condition. I looked up the definition of New Age because I always felt it was such an ambiguous phrase. Here’s the first definition I found: “a broad movement characterized by alternative approaches to traditional Western culture, with an interest in spirituality, mysticism, holism, and environmentalism”. That seems a good description of the books we have. I’ve also included non-western, alternative health books. If that sounds interesting to you, come take a look.
2) We received a large donation of piano music. We have scores for beginners, intermediate and advanced players. The collection includes popular music (mostly from the 60s) and an impressive selection of classical music. The 60s pop music is mostly sheet music and I enjoyed a very entertaining trip down memory lane while looking through it. We don’t often have a selection like this.
