The titles listed are new acquisitions and were selected for the display by the Business Librarian Janice Derr.
Ahhhh…Spring! It’s finally here and like Lord Alfred Tennyson penned: In the spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.
Or, as John Dryden proclaimed: Pains of love be sweeter far | Than all other pleasures are.
Lastly, Emily Dickinson wrote: That love is all there is, is all we know of love.
Below are a few titles revealing all kinds of love and affection, pulsing within each cover: from Edith Wharton’s “Ethan Frome” the classic tale of the hiss of an old love grown cold as well as the promise, thrill and redemption of a new lover; to an unlikely, but growing friendship and attachment between two prison cellmates in “The Kiss of the Spider-Woman;” to the hilarious daily journal of a young woman, Bridget, describing her none-too-suave exploits (think blue soup, trying to shed stones, and an inappropriate interest in her bad-boy boss) in “Bridget Jones’s Diary.”

The Government Printing Office in 1887
Congressional Hearings: A meeting or session of the Senate, House of Representatives, Joint or Special Committees of Congress organized to obtain information, testimony, and opinions on proposed legislation, conduct an investigation, or evaluate/oversee the activities of a government department or the implementation of a Federal law–they are usually open to the public.
Hearings may also be purely exploratory in nature, providing testimony and data about topics of current interest. Witnesses often include government officials, spokespersons for interested groups, experts, officials of the General Accounting Office and members of Congress. Subpoenas may be issued to summon reluctant witnesses. Most congressional hearings are published two months to two years after they are held.
Other types of hearings:
Field Hearing: a committee or subcommittee hearing which is held outside Washington D.C.–often in the state of a committee member.
Markup: a meeting or series of meetings by a committee or subcommittee in which members perform a section-by-section analysis or “mark up” on a bill or measure by offering, debating, and voting on amendments to it.
Oversight Hearing (or Legislative Review): a congressional review of the way in which federal agencies implement laws to ensure they are carrying out the intent of Congress; to inquire into the efficiency of implementation; and to evaluate the effectiveness of the law. Oversight hearings also determine whether laws should be changed or if additional laws are necessary.
