Neruda’s Odes to Common Things is a relaxing and enjoyable experience, complemented by the wonderful illustrations of Ferris Cook.
From “Ode to the table”:
I work out my odes
on a four-legged table,
laying before me bread and wine
and roast meat
(that black boat of our dreams)….
It occurs to me that Pablo Neruda really knew how to work.
These are bilingual poems, so the Spanish and English are side-by-side for those interested in comparison. Come check it out at the OCAC Library!

Interested in learning a new language? Why not come back to school in the fall with a brilliant new skill! Did you know that your library card gives you access to Mango, a great, interactive, language tutorial? It’s a wonderful tool, and will help you to brush up on your Spanish, Danish, or 63 other languages (seriously, you have to see this list–amazing choices, they just added Cherokee!).
So what are you waiting for? Try Mango, and learn a new language! You just need your library card and your PIN (don’t know that one? try the last 4 digits of your phone number, or contact the library to reset it).
In a time when American poetry was still constrained by formalist rules, the Beat Generation broke down convention in favor of uninhibited expression. Suddenly, poetry became immediate, unposed, a moment captured on the page. Allen Ginsberg‘s work is emblematic of this style, and, in Snapshot Poetics, his photographs are too. Find this book on wccls.org or on the shelf here at OCAC: PS 3513 .I74 Z475 1993.

The navigation of legal issues can be difficult and complicated. EBSCO’s Legal Information Reference Center aims to uncomplicate these challenges with handy guides and access to forms. Here’s a description from Arlene Weible at the Oregon State Library:
The State of Oregon Law Library has purchased EBSCO’s Legal Information Reference Center. This resource is accessible from any browser, any location, within the borders of the state of Oregon. People do not need to come to a library for access.
This service contains a large number of NOLO legal reference books and various legal forms. NOLO publications are books on common legal topics aimed at non-lawyers. The NOLO books are a good resource for people looking to get a handle on common legal problems.
Oregonians simply go to the link, enter their county of residence for their “patron id” and “oregon” as the password. Neither is case sensitive.
Libraries are free to link this great legal resource to your website and encourage people to use it. If people need more assistance with this and other legal resources they can contact their local county law library or the State Law Library.
