While newspapers can keep you up-to-date with the news, magazines can keep you up-to-date with just about everything else, and entertained too. The Halton Hills Public Library has recently added some titles to our ever-growing magazine collection. Here are some examples of what is new this year: Budget Living is a fascinating magazine to read, simply because of the originality of it. Specially directed towards the uncommonly thrifty or those of us who simply hate throwing things away, this magazine gives instructions on how to recycle anything into, well, just about anything. For example, an old quiche dish and a selection of old spoons can be fashioned into a decorative mirror for your hall. Imagine that! Also new to the Georgetown Branch is Wired magazine. This "tabloid for the techsavvy" is filled with more than just the latest games and gadgets. Within its pages you'll find articles about current events, the arts, politics, business, and how all these are affected and sometimes ruled by our technology-soaked world. Whether you are a vegetarian or just in search of some really fantastic recipes, come to the Georgetown Branch and take a look at Vegetarian Times. Packed with fantastic recipes, reviews of kitchen gadgets, and advice for healthy living, this magazine is a great read for "foodies" and the health-conscious alike. New to the Acton Branch's collection is Simple Scrapbooking. This magazine is a wealth of scrapbooking ideas for both the novice and the expert. Examples of designs, equipment to use, how-to instructions and advice for designing your own special pages are all featured in this beautiful full-color magazine. The Acton Branch is also adding Acreage Life to its collection. Whether you live on a small farm, fancy trying you hand at hobby farming, or have a little extra land around your cottage, this guide to rural living can help you make the most of your property. For more information on these or any of the almost 200 magazines subscribed to by the Halton Hills Public Library, please visit either branch or check out our website at www.library.hhpl.on.ca.
