PLS has taken on two new databases that should definitely be explored!
The Consumer Reports database assists consumers in making better purchasing decisions on whatever they may be shopping for. Consumers can search and browse through information about cars, appliances, electronics, home & gardening supplies, products for babies & kids, shopping, health, and money. The database also provides ratings for the items that people are interested in. If you are thinking about making a purchase anytime soon, browse this database to get the most bang for your buck!
The Fold3 database offers a vast collection of original historical documents and personal histories from the past. These valuable documents can help people expand their knowledge of their own ancestry. With a travelling genealogy program going around PLS for Summer Reading 2013, this database could help you get started on exploring an interesting personal history.Add a comment

Students from Michelle McDaniel's class at Polo Road Elementary School in Columbia, South Carolina, heard about the multiple tornadoes that came through our state in May and sympathized with the Oklahomans affected.
To show their support, they wrote cards expressing their well wishes, safety tips, and positivity about the future. The photo to the left is just an example of one of the many thoughtful cards written by the Polo Road Elementary School children.

Ian Fleming's birth anniversary is May 28th. This English journalist and novelist created the James Bond series, beginning with Casino Royale in 1953.
He also penned the children's classic Chiddy Chiddy Bang Bang.
To celebrate Ian Fleming, stop by your hometown library and check out some of the following titles. Don't forget to look at materials on OverDrive as well! This is a great time to explore the inspiration for the numerous James Bond movies.
Casino Royale: A James Bond Novel by Ian Fleming
In the first James Bond novel, originally published in 1953, 007 takes on Le Chiffre, a French communist and paymaster of the Soviet murder organization SMERSH, as the suave agent becomes involved in a high-stakes game of baccarat, enjoys a fiery love affair with a sexy female spy, and endures torture at the hands of a master sadist.Add a comment
