Also on Wednesday (April, 29) American Library provided training on Mendeley - a free reference manager and academic social network for students and researchers. Mendeley offers to create your own fully-searchable library in seconds, cite as you write, and read and annotate your PDFs on any device. We hope this training was useful for our readers.

Book of the Week - "Taking the Leap: Freeing Ourselves from Old Habits and Fears" by Pema Chodron. This book shows us how to break free of destructive patterns in our lives and experience a new sense of freedom and happiness. Drawing on the Buddhist concept of "shenpa", she helps us see how certain habits of mind tend to hook us and get us stuck in states of anger, blame, self-hatred, and addiction. The good news is - once we start to see these patterns, we begin to change our lives for better.

Like Christmas, Easter in the United States is celebrated in both religious and secular ways. In many communities, the Christian aspect of the holiday, which includes Passion Plays and church services, is combined with visits from the Easter Bunny and hunts for dyed and/or painted Easter eggs. This week we picked books on religious history and essentials of Christianity.

American Library is happy to be involved in our neighbours celebration - Omeljan Pritsak Library opened new spaces and new entrance. In common efforts this year we managed to develop new spaces (reading rooms and entrance). Omeljan Pritsak (7 April 1919, Austrian Galicia – 29 May 2006, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.) was the first Mykhailo Hrushevsky Professor of Ukrainian History at Harvard University and the founder and first director (1973–1989) of the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute.
