Memorial Day Closures Starting Tomorrow, Plus Handy Book

All six locations of the Des Moines Public Library will be closed tomorrow, Friday the 27th, through Monday the 30th.  Friday is a furlough day and staff will not be paid for this day.  We re-open at our regular hours on Tuesday, May 31. Soooo, if you're the kind of guy/gal who likes to mess around with home-improvement projects over long weekends, here's a fun book: 75 tools every man needs, and how to use them like a pro.   (I apologize for the single-gender title.) Do you have a coping saw?  If one of your saws looks like a cheese cutter, maybe you do.  How many wrenches do you need?  Let me count the ways.  1. Adjustable Wrench.  2. Allen Wrench.  3. Combination Wrench.  4. Pipe Wrench.  5. Socket Wrench. Hah!   Betcha don't have all of them.  Then again, maybe everyone but me has all of them.  And knows what to do with them.  A tip of my cap to you members of the handy clan.
