Nick Schenkel's Book Reviews on WBAA



The elegant and various styles of Chinese dim sum can be difficult to navigate, but this week's feature demystifies the tea-time eating experience. With beautiful black-and-white drawings covering over 70 varieties of dim sum, author Carolyn Phillips gives anyone the ability to choose new and exciting bites from their favorite Chinese restaurant. West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel has a review.                                                                                                                                                                                                               Dim Sum Field Guide                                                                                                                          




LFL Lincoln Park -small installation day 8 21 2015  


The West Lafayette Public Library is proud to announce the opening of a neighborhood Little Free Library and a walk-up library book return box in both Lommel Park and Lincoln Park (seen in the photo above) in West Lafayette.

Working with the West Lafayette Parks and Recreation Department, with funding from North Central Health Services (NCHS), the West Lafayette Library is expanding the network of library service points in West Lafayette.

The book drops and the little free libraries are now available for use in both parks. 

You will also find Little Free Libraries in Tapawingo Park, Cumberland Park, along Kalberer Road (west of Yeager Road), and near the Community Gardens (west of Salisbury Street). Our thanks to the Lafayette Rotary Club for their building and West Lafayette Parks and Recreation Department for their installation of these Little Free Libraries.

The Little Free Libraries are stocked by both the West Lafayette Public Library and by residents of the neighborhoods the little free libraries serve.

Please use and enjoy these West Lafayette Library services!  You're welcome to "take a book, leave a book" at any of the little free libraries.
