Fall is descending upon us!

I know you probably don’t want to hear this, but the summer is over. Fall is quickly creeping up on us, and school will be starting soon.
If this makes you nervous, there are some books that you can take a look at that may help. These are just the books that we own here, if you want more, feel free to ask for Cathy (that’s me) and I will look for more books that other libraries own. I am also going to be looking for websites that might help as well, so look for that in the future.
As always, feel free to make suggestions (about programming, books etc.)! I want your ideas!
