Book Reviews By Crofton Library Staff

Visit Crofton Library on Reidel Road


The Crofton Library staff is practicing what they preach – READING! 

Not only that, they’re writing book reviews to help the rest of us make good choices when we visit the library.  You will find this information at Crofton’s Read and Review, with the sub-title “A happy place where the staff of Crofton Library can post what they’re reading.”

There is just one problem:  It’s not clear from the website if this is OUR Crofton Library

After all, there are other Croftons in North America and they probably all have a library: 

Crofton, Nebraska and Crofton, Kentucky in the United States and Crofton, British Columbia in Canada. 

And, in England: 

Crofton, Cumbria, in Thursby Parish; Crofton, Bromley, a neighbourhood in Orpington; Crofton, Hampshire, an area of Stubbington; Crofton near Wakefield in West Yorkshire; Crofton Pumping Station and Crofton Locks in the county of Wiltshire; and Crofton Park, southeast London.

I can only say for sure that “Crofton Library”, somewhere in the world, has a nice website featuring book reviews by their staff.  Regardless of where Crofton’s Read and Review originates, this is a great resource for readers!  (If this is “our” Crofton Library in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, please post a comment to this post and let us know so we can congratulate and thank you, when we stop into the library!)

Today’s post, Baseball Fever, actually reviews two books – George Vecsey’s Baseball:  The History of America’s Favorite Game and Zach Hample’s Watching Baseball Smarter.    Other recent reviews include Robin Hobb’s Renegade Magic and Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid

I’m not a big reader, yet I bookmarked this site.     

No Crofton Library 

UPDATE 3/07/08:  This IS “our” Crofton Library but, minutes after posting this, I received notice they consider this a “private” blog site.  Now the Anne Arundel County public library in Crofton has blocked public access to their book reviews.  What a shame for them and us!  See the comments to this post for more information.

UPDATE 3/27/08:  After my Letter to the Editor of The Annapolis Capitol and Crofton Crier appeared last week, this site went public again.  Be sure to check out Crofton’s Read and Review… and enjoy!
