Magazine Review by Mary Weaver, March 10, 2010

Mary Weaver's review of magazines

Rippey Library News

It’s been said that variety is the spice of life—and surely this would also hold true in our selection of the Library’s reading material. Some people enjoy light-hearted fiction while other’s favorite would include the perusal of academic journals. The Rippey Library has a wide range of reading material—enough to “spice up” anyone’s life!

This writing is a focus on the magazine selections that are received on a monthly basis and are available to you.

If your interest is in rural life and gardening check the following:

Birds and Blooms


Country Woman

Farm and Ranch Living

If your interest is in crafts you may want to read through the following:

Today’s Creative Homearts

Crafts n Things

A couple of our monthly magazines are fun “remembering” types, Good Old Days, and Reminisce”. For those of you who are new parents, or grandparents that want to be more knowledgeable about your grandchildren, you may want to have a look at Baby Talk.

Sometimes I have indulgence buying at the grocery store check out line. We know they strategically locate the magazines there hoping we will purchase them as we wait. Now you can obtain and read Family Circle, and save a couple of dollars.

Other magazines of interest include Guideposts, Sierra Club, and Ideals. I am personally grateful the Library subscribes to Iowa Heritage, this is official publication of the State Historical Society, and always has something of interest.

I have not reviewed it entirely, but the Library receives a publication Elderhostel, this provides short stories about travel and learning both here in the U.S., as well as internationally.

Come into to greet Toni, our Librarian, and go to the back of the library to see these selections. She has the Library open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1-6:00 P.M.
