                 Which Fork?

 

Should you follow American style or Continental style when using utensils? How do you hold utensils? How do you rest them? When do you take a seat at a table? These and many other etiquette rules can be learned at your library!

Good starting places are Emily Post’s Etiquette, Amy Vanderbilt Complete Book of Etiquette, The Protocol School of Washington’s Honor & Respect: The Official Guide to Names, Titles, and Forms of Address, and Service Etiquette.

These and many other books on etiquette may be found in your library! Call the library at 610-543-2113 to ask a librarian about these and other sources for that special occasion when etiquette has to be perfect!

Pick of the Week

Service Etiquette Fifth Edition

by Cherlynn Conetsco and Anna Hart

Available in Adult Reference Section

"This book contains important lessons about life in uniform. There is no denying that all of us must function in an increasingly diverse and interconnected world, rich with cultural differences, customs, traditions, mores, and courtesies too many to remember..."
"It offers all of us, from different backgrounds, different interest levels, different responsibilities, a better understanding of each other, and what is expected of us in unfamiliar circumstances--a tall order for one word: etiquette."
