‘My Essential Books’ is a new feature on the FRVPLD blog, where we talk up our favorite books in the hope that you may give them a chance, or at least appreciate our passion for the titles that have made us who we are.

Up and Coming: "Windy City"

I have been a fan of Alison Krauss for as long as I can remember. Which is almost lame when you consider the fact that I’m 24 years old and most people my age are listening to like…Fetty Wap and Big Mac (I made that name up). She’s the reason I love music as much as I do, and you’re nuts if you don’t agree that she has the best voice in bluegrass.

October is Family History Month, don’t ya know, and starting your genealogy journey has never been easier thanks to Try-It! Illinois. The Illinois State Library, in collaboration with multiple e-resource providers, launched Try-It! Illinois in 2001 to give Illinois residents the opportunity to explore an extensive list of resources that aren’t always available to them otherwise. This year, the trial will run from October 1, 2016 through November 30, 2016.
