Nancy's Notes - April 30, 2015

“the Mayo Clinic Guide to Fertility and Conception”, “True Tales From the Life of a New York City Cop” by Steve Osborne.

    A few weeks ago I wrote about the life of Morgan Everts, the namesake of the original library structure. I recently found some information about his wife. A sign of that time, most articles listed her only as Mrs. Morgan Everts, however a handwritten article in my folder listed her given name as Nette Goit Everts. There was also an article, that I assume was from the Webster City paper, announcing her death with no date or age listed. It stated that their daughter was born in Webster City in 1869. The family moved to California when their daughter, Minnie, was 14 years of age.  The family resided in California until their deaths. Mrs. Everts died of pneumonia. She was the sister-in-law of longtime Webster City resident Mrs. E.D. Goit. No timetable was listed but the article states that her husband had been deceased for several years.
        New to our shelves is, “the Mayo Clinic Guide to Fertility and Conception”. Fertility experts at Mayo Clinic offer a guide for those who want to have a baby. With color photographs and graphics throughout, the book provides answers and explanations on nearly every aspect of achieving a successful pregnancy: lifestyle and nutrition; the intricacies of natural conception; common fertility problems; the latest medical treatments (including intrauterine insemination,IVF, and donors); and information on special situations (including fertility preservation, chosen single parenthood, same-sex couples, and more).
        Lately there has been a lot of media time given to various police departments throughout the country. Most of it has not been positive. We recently acquired a book that may give  you some insight into the other side of that profession. Steve Osborne has written “True Tales From the Life of a New York City Cop”. With a touch of humor and the profane, he tells stories of his twenty years on the force.
