Grooms

June is the time for weddings and most books about weddings tend to focus on the bride, but there are books that focus on the groom or the men in the wedding party. Three titles that caught my attention were The Best Man’s Handbook, The Complete Guide for The Anxious Groom and The Groom’s Instruction Manual.  Come check out our display about Weddings in the Business & Social Sciences Division.

Contractors

At the reference desk, we often get question about contractors. If you need to hire a contractor, one resource that can help you is the Better Contractors Bureau http://www.the-bcb.net. They are located at 1151 Titus Ave, Rochester NY 14617, (585) 338-3600. You can contact them directly to see if they have received any complaints about a specific contractor. They also can provide good information about hiring a contactor in general. On their website this month, they have tips to protect your self against fly by night operators.
