The Encyclopedia Of New York City. Covering an exhaustive range of information about the five boroughs, the first edition of The Encyclopedia of New York City was a success by every measure, earning worldwide acclaim and several awards for reference excellence, and selling out its first printing before it was officially published. But much has changed since the volume first appeared in 1995: the World Trade Center no longer dominates the skyline, a billionaire businessman has become an unlikely three-term mayor, and urban regeneration—Chelsea Piers, the High Line, DUMBO, Williamsburg, the South Bronx, the Lower East Side—has become commonplace. To reflect such innovation and change, this definitive, one-volume resource on the city has been completely revised and expanded. The revised edition includes 800 new entries that help complete the story of New York: from Air Train to E-ZPass, from September 11 to public order. The new material includes broader coverage of subject areas previously underserved as well as new maps and illustrations. Virtually all existing entries—spanning architecture, politics, business, sports, the arts, and more—have been updated to reflect the impact of the past two decades. The more than 5,000 alphabetical entries and 700 illustrations of the second edition of The Encyclopedia of New York City convey the richness and diversity of its subject in great breadth and detail, and will continue to serve as an indispensable tool for everyone who has even a passing interest in the American metropolis.

Moonlight On Water. A woman must choose between the life she has known and the charismatic stranger who offers her a world beyond her utopian community in the second novel in Jo Ann Ferguson’s passionate and poignant Haven Trilogy River’s Haven, Indiana, governs its inhabitants by rigidly imposed laws, including some highly unusual ones about marriage and family. Defying the town—and its all-powerful Assembly of Elders—Rachel Browning takes in orphaned Katherine Mulligan to raise as her own. But now Rachel’s overprotective brother is pressuring the single mother to marry. Rachel’s ideal husband certainly isn’t the brash, seductive stranger she meets when Katherine runs away. Wyatt Colton’s life is like the ever-changing river. The restless rover can’t imagine putting down roots in one place, especially not this backwater burg with its tyrannical rules and regulations. He’ll stay in River’s Haven just long enough to repair his run-aground steamboat. But what’s he going to do about the adorable red-haired urchin he finds stowed on his boat? Or her alluring adoptive mother? As taboo desire flames into an affair that sets the people of River’s Haven dangerously against Wyatt and Rachel, a man who swore never to give his heart will risk everything for a love that could be the safest haven of all. Moonlight on Water is the 2nd book in the Haven Trilogy, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

A True Politician. Rebecca Browning Rankin was a politician in the best sense of the word. She supervised the New York Municipal Reference Library for 32 years until her retirement in 1952. Serving in many key policy-making positions, both on mayoral committees and in professional organizations, Rankin was an excellent lobbyist for the role of information in educating the electorate. She published over fifty articles and books on aspects of city government and libraries, and delivered weekly radio speeches on WNYC from 1928 to 1938. Her career as a librarian, author and radio commentator demonstrates the use of research in the formation of public policy decisions and provides a unique perspective on politics in New York. Rankin also served as president of several library organizations including the Special Libraries Association, which she led to national status during her tenure. During the Depression, she established the Association's employment service and worked with Mayor Fiorello La Guardia and other library officials to provide pensions for public librarians in New York City. Rankin and La Guardia shared the belief that government should carry out the will of the people and care for their needs, and the two worked together to make this a reality. Quotations from primary sources in the archives of the New York Public Library and the City of New York give the book a strong narrative style. Focusing on Rankin's efforts to document New York City's past as its unofficial historian, the book examines the city's political history during the first half of the twentieth century and illuminates the relationship of the local government with one of its great cultural institutions, the New York Public Library.
