(Hamilton, NY – Feb. 2012) The Hamilton Public Library now has a circulating collection of math books recommended by Mark Manchester. These books will be familiar to several people who attended a series of lectures that Mark presented in the fall.

Among the titles now on the new nonfiction shelf are A History of Pi by Petr Beckmann, The Magic House of Numbers by Irving Adler, An Imaginary Tale: The Story of Square Root of -1 by Paul Nahin, and The Saga of Mathematics: a brief history.

Participants of our recent Family Game Night had a chance to try out some new items on loan to the library. Our library now has a small collection of jigsaw puzzles of the moon and outer space and a Space Travel Hazards board game from the Government Documents collection of Colgate University’s Case Library.

More items will be available over the next few weeks.

As a reminder, the library and the Colgate Book Store will be accepting entries for their annual Chenango Valley Scribes Writing and Illustrating Contest starting March 1st. This contest is for children in kindergarten through fifth grades. Entry forms and guidelines are available at the Colgate Bookstore and the library.
