Mantor Monday Sneak Preview

Guess what we just got.
Go ahead, guess.
Did you guess a fancy-schmancy new microfilm and fiche reader that makes our old reader look like a relic of the Pleistocene?
If you did, well played. (If you guessed pony rides you're wrong but it's still an excellent suggestion.)
Our new Scanpro 2000 was delivered today, and it's not ready for prime time, but stay tuned - we'll be offering much more information when it's available for use.

Speaking of ready to use: have you seen our "On Our Minds" garden lately? Kale, cabbage, basil, nasturtiums and Lemon Gem marigolds all ready for salad-on-the-fly grazing. The Sungold cherry tomatoes are starting to ripen and will soon turn into a bright orange tidal wave of tomatoes: help yourself as you walk by.

And last, as a special First Day of August treat for you, I invite you to escape your Monday and lose yourself for a few moments in a land of books:
