Why My Third Husband Will be a Dog, by Lisa Scottoline

The Amazing Adventures of an Ordinary Woman. Together in one collection are

Lisa’s wildly popular Philadelphia Inquirer columns that show the humorous

side of life, from a woman’s perspective. Filled with seventy charming and

hilarious vignettes, it’s trademark Scottoline. Reading Why My Third Husband

Will be a Dog is like visiting with an old friend. Lisa lets her hair down, roots and

all, to write about her ordinary, extraordinary adventures. You’ll laugh at Lisa’s

stories and recognize yourself or a loved one in her, Mother Mary, Brother

Frank, Daughter Francesca, or BFFs Franca and Laura. No topic is off-limits,

and thanks to Lisa, nothing is ever really ordinary.

MCCPL Announces Food For Fines Campaign!!

Food for Fines

May 9 through June 9, 2018

 

The Montgomery City-County Public Library’s annual Food For Fines Campaign will run for four weeks, from Wednesday, May 9 through June 9 at all ten MCCPL libraries.

Here’s how it works: Bring in a minimum of 13 ounces of non-perishable, canned food items with EACH overdue book or overdue media item (i.e. DVD, CD, book-on-tape, etc.) during the campaign. Your overdue fine will be forgiven and your record will be cleared for that item. Overdue items must be returned at the same time as your canned food donation.

The general public is invited to join our staff and patrons by dropping off non-perishable, canned food items to your nearest MCCPL library during this campaign. Look for the big blue barrel! Your donation is greatly appreciated. Since MCCPL began Food for Fines in 2001, more than 15,000 overdue items have been returned to the library and the community has donated thousands of pounds of food for the Montgomery Area Food Bank.

Montgomery City-County Public Library is proud to partner with the Montgomery Area Food Bank to help feed individuals and families in need across Alabama. The Montgomery Area Food Bank is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, doing everything possible to combat hunger and food insecurity in 35 of Alabama’s 67 counties through a framework of philanthropic, logistic and educational programs. We connect people, food and resources to satisfy emergent hunger needs, while targeting healthier outcomes and self-sufficiency.
