Need a suggestion for something to read or watch from the library this weekend? Maybe you'd like to check out an ebook or audiobook? Try some of our Staff Picks, to find what some of the other people in our parish are enjoying.

We know that not every staff pick will appeal to every patron, but not to worry! If you need help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.

Human Footprint [DVD] by National Geographic

Human Footprint explores the amount of waste produced, resources consumed, & how much impact a person has on the Earth in the average lifetime (77 years and 9 months).

This DVD really made an impact on me! We just do not have an idea of the things we use and consume and waste in our lifetime. The DVD gives a visual of all the things we need from baby hood to senior adults and what goes in to producing these items.

It really made me think of how blessed we are with an abundance in the United States. Also it made me think we should slow our consumption down a lot.

If Human Footprint interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
