New Non-fiction

Get your learn on

Just the Facts, Ma'am

My free time is non-existent. Between working full-time, juggling my son's schedule, preparing for trap season, and laundry, I just don't have a ton of time to read. My solution? Non-fiction.

I like to read non-fiction because to learn something new from the text, I don't have to read the entire book, but rather I can read just a chapter or two, or maybe skim a few pages to gain the main gist. The library has received some really great non-fiction titles within the last few weeks. Check out these books below that offer fascinating facts and tidbits.


CountryWatch

CountryWatch provides critical country-specific intelligence and data to over 4,000 libraries, government agencies, companies, and schools located around the world. The company prides itself on supplying up-to-date news and information on each of the recognized countries of the world. Need to know the latest news on the crisis in Syria? Not sure what the tenets of "nationalism" are? Perhaps you are traveling to China this summer and you're not sure the etiquette of gift giving for your Chinese host? CountryWatch can provide you all this information and more. Access is available from both the "Databases Subject" and "Databases Alphabetical" tabs off of the library's portal page. As always, please stop by the McClain Library should you have any problems accessing this database or if you need a quick lesson how to effectively search a database.
