The new Fall 2010 edition of the Federal Citizen Information Center’s Consumer Information Catalog has arrived. Copies are available free, on a first-come-first-serve basis, on the octagonal display of new arrivals at the library entrance.
The Consumer Information Catalog lists dozens of free and low-cost brochures, pamphlets, books and other documents from a number of government agencies and departments on an extraordinary range of subjects – cars, computers, employment, family, federal programs, food, health, housing, and more — all available from the Federal Citizen Information Center.
(If you prefer, you may also order your own copy direct from the Federal Citizen Information Center website.)
Election 2010 is now in motion.
Tomorrow, the Sedgwick County Election Office will begin mailing advance voting ballots to those who have requested them, and on Wednesday October 20th advance voting in person will begin at the election office downtown. (Advance voting at the Election Office will continue until noon on Monday November 1st.)
If you haven’t yet registered to vote in the November 2nd General Election, you have just a few more days to do so. To be eligible to vote, you must be registered not later than Monday October 18th. (If you need any kind of assistance registering, stop by the library as soon as possible.)
Beginning on Tuesday October 26th and ending on Saturday October 30th, you will be able to vote at many of the satellite Advance Voting locations, such as the Haysville Activity Center.
And, of course, the polls will be open on General Election Day, Tuesday November 2nd from 6 am until 7 pm. (If you arrange for an advance ballot, it must be in the Election Office not later than 7 pm on election day.)

The avidly anticipated Haysville Community Cookbook, featuring hundreds of recipes contributed by more than a hundred local citizens, is now available from the Haysville Chamber of Commerce.
Dedicated to both the first homesteaders to settle along Cowskin Creek and also those who make Haysville such a great community today, the Haysville Community Cookbook is an excellent home-grown resource that will please your palate for years to come.
I’m going to celebrate tonight by baking one of Ruby Bell’s rhubarb pies (page 104) to follow-up a dinner of Spinach and Artichoke Lasagna (page 74). Delicious.
For more information, or to secure your very own copy of the Haysville Community Cookbook, visit the Haysville Chamber of Commerce website.
