Need a suggestion for something to read or watch from the library this weekend? Maybe you'd like to check out an ebook or audiobook? Try some of our Staff Picks, to find what some of the other people in our parish are enjoying.

We know that not every staff pick will appeal to every patron, but not to worry! If you need help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.

State Fair [DVD]

In the Rodger’s and Hammerstein musical, State Fair – on DVD – we watch a 1940’s family visit the Iowa State Fair. Each family member takes something special home with them from the fair: ribbons, restitution, and true love. The musical lyrics will keep you singing while the melody will encourage you to hum a tune.

I enjoy romantic, heart-warming, family movies. The musical score and humor enhance this wonderful movie. Others may wish to compare the state fair of yesteryear to the current state fairs. I hope that you have the opportunity to watch the movie and attend the Louisiana State Fair when it comes back again.

If State Fair interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
