Councillor Mike Del Grande, the city's budget chief, questions whether the library should be in the business of movies and non-English materials.
Being a focal point for the community is precisely the right role, said Councillor Sarah Doucette, a library board member. She shook her head when Del Grande’s recorded comments were played back to her. “I guess it depends what you think a library is,” she said. “A library is no longer a room full of books. It’s the computers where people can come to get jobs, improve their education. Some of the videos are how-to videos. We’ve got the newspapers, we’ve got magazines. We’re working to get more e-books.”
Compiling our best-books-of-the-year lists is a process that is both exciting and heartbreaking. Exciting, because I get to steep myself in the year's great books, and heartbreaking, because I have to pick favorites. After considerable solitary soul-searching and spirited back-and-forth with our corps of reviewers, I am pleased to present our Best Books for Children. Here you will find books that will thrill, tickle, stimulate, soothe and enlighten kids from the very youngest to early teens. There are heartfelt explorations of the natural world and loving celebrations of the closeness of family, ruminative picture books and adventures to get the blood pounding. And three, count them, three novels featuring mice.
The CBC’s love affair with The Best Laid Plans by Terry Fallis continues. On Tuesday, Jian Ghomeshi announced at the CBC Canada Reads launch party that CBC Television will adapt the book into a six-part miniseries.
At year’s end, we’re bombarded with “best of” lists. Though the following books received mostly favorable reviews, they may have flown under the radar for most readers in 2011, which makes them good titles to suggest when all of the blockbusters are checked out.
We are pleased to present this year’s 65 choices for the Best Books of 2011, chosen from the more than 6000 books reviewed this year. Novels were a standout, particularly those for teens, with themes of leadership, coming-of-age, and facing tough situations presented in powerful narratives with memorable characters.

Joan Weaver and Rosetta Graff aren’t exactly reinventing the small town public library, just . . . well, reinterpreting it. The Kinsley Public Library in Kinsley, which, with a population of roughly 1,450, is the largest town in Edwards County, in wheat-growing central Kansas. Before the Internet, the public library was the source of books and information. Now, it’s one of many sources. So, like a company rewriting its business model in changing times, the library, especially the small library, also must adapt to remain relevant.
Although we’ve still got all of December before 2012—another whole month of book releases and reading said book releases—the Best of 2011 Season is in full swing. What with that extra month, I’m hesitant to create my own comprehensive Best of List yet, but here are a few of my favorites.
