During the month of December, the time of Story Hour has been changed to 3:00 p.m. in order that children through grade four may be included in a special Christmas project. Readers Mona Fitzhenry and librarian Becky Look, have planned a series of stories on Christmas customs of other lands, and color sheets and bulletin board displays will carry out this theme. School children are reminded that arrange- ments can be made for the bus driver to leave them at the library building after school, and the preschool listeners are also welcome. The past two story times have had a lower attendance than usual so it is hoped that more children will join the circle of listeners for the special Christ- mas season projects. The special Christmas-season story hour held on Dec. 5 attracted about fif- teen children, who listened to stories ex- plaining Christmas customs in Holland. Real Wooden shoes, filled with hay and carrots for Santa's reindeer were avail- able for the children to look:at, and after- ward the children colored pictures for the bulletin board display. Librarian Becky Look and volunteer Mona Fitzhenry were busy matching coats with their owners after this enjoy- able session, and everyone trooped out carrying a book and wearing a smile. LUBEC The Lubec Memorial Library has added the following new books to the shelves:- Ad_vJ_t.F_o__.

"Rabbit's New Rug"-Judy Delton (Pre- school) & LOVE A small gift, if caring, is its own valid- ity of love. This year, why not blow away the cobwebs of convention and include in your Christmas gift list a lonely shut- in, that clerk who always tries so hard to please, or the troubled teen-ager who has lost his way in the morass of the world's moral anarchy. This quartet of suggested gifts ranges from a low of $1.65 to a high of $5.95: The Massachusetts Audubon Society Bird Identification Calendar 1980 Illustrated by John Sill The Stephen Greene Press $5.95 A brilliantly beautiful full-color bird calendar that opens up for wall hanging to a spectacular 18"x12" size. Printed on heavy ivory stock, the lower half of each page is given over to the days of each stipulated month, blocked off in generous squares large enough for penciled-in re- minders. The upper half of each calendar page is the tour de force. Spread out over the twelve months, keying the pictured birds with the seasons in which they are to be seen, John Sill-celebrated artist and train- ed wildlife biologist-has painted water- color portraits of sixty-nine of the birds of Eastern North America, depicting them in their native habitats. But there's more. A brief text, broken up into six lessons, initiates the calendar owner into the mysteries of bird-watch- ing; while a removable center-fold address- es itself to the construction of feeders, essentials of bird feeding, and tips on planting for birds. It also explains why the Yellow-shafted Flicker, and the Hairy and Downy Woodpeckers get their jollies from pecking holes in certain houses and out- buildings. A delightful gift, and an illuminating way to mark time. All-Maine All-Fruit Cookbook compiled and edited by Loana Shibles and Annie Rogers. Courier of Maine Books 187 pp., $1.95 Maine winters are journeys into a white eternity. Snow lays silent siege, and smoke curls defiantly from busy chimneys every- where. It is the season for the solace of the lip-smacking, heart-warming dessert. It is also the season when canned fruits disappear like genies from the housewife's cellar shelves. In recognition of the starting role play- ed by fruits, Shibles and Rogers tracked down more than 320 of Maine's finest cooks, coaxing them into signing and sharing their creme de la creme recipes for this cleaddy-printed, easy-to-follow fruit cookbook, the third in a trilogy which includes the antecedent titles, "All-Maine Seafood" and "All-Maine Poultry and Game Bird". "All-Maine All-Fruit Cookbook" is a blue ribbon choice for anyone with a healthy appetite. Health Secrets from Europe by Paavo O. Airola, N.D. Arco Publishing Co., Inc. 224 pp., $1.65 Persuasively nuanced to the European point of view, this labyrinth of health secrets winds its way through such pro- vocative issues as "How to Prevent Pre- mature Aging and Stay Younger Longer", "The European System of Preventing Hearth Attacks", and "What Americans Can Learn from Europe about Better Health". Dr. Airola (naturopathic doctor) be- lieves the secret of staying healthy is closely tied to proper nutrition. Medical doctor Jem Hamberg, who concurs, writes in the book's foreword: "Man has an al- most superstitiot faith in medical science and 'wonder drugs'. This passive depend- ence leads his attention away from the highest form of medicine, preventive medicine... " The author builds a dramatic case for the efficacy of raw foods, categorically stating that "At least 50 percent, but still better, two-thirds of your diet should be raw." A mind-stirring glimpse into nutrition and vitamin-mineral therapies, European style. International Fish Cookery by Lou Seibert Pappas 101 Productions, dist. by Charles Scrib- ner's Sons 144 pp., $5.95 Food editor of California's .P..enins.a. and contributor to such culinary stand-outs as .Gg.u__..rm.._e.t " and C.ui 2- [.n..e magazines, veteran author Lou Pappas has gone international with this fish cook- ery book. Stews, chowders, soups and such are brought into telescopic focus from the Mediterranean, Normandy, Spain and Italy, to say nothing of Istanbul, the city that rests like a jewel close to the blue shimmer of the sea. Attractively printed and illustrated in soft green on off-white stock, "Interna- tional Fish Cookery" instructs on buying, storing, cleaning and cutting-up all man- ner of seafood, including as well a nutri- tional chart spelling out the values of major types of fish and shellfish. Each exotic recipe is highlighted by its own informative commentary. Preced- ing the recipe for the famed Bouillabaisse, for example, is the disclosure that this vaunted dish was born in the humble cot- tages of Marseille where the wives of the fishermen would make up what they call- ed a bouillabaisse (a fish/stew made of two or more kinds of fish, often seasoned with wine) from the left-over salvage of the day's catch. Just to list the names of the recipes requires a five-page Index-and that is no fish story.
