Our May Displays

It’s May-

And we can’t wait to get shed our winter clothes.  It’s time for the great outdoors.  Our monthly book displays are in keeping with this theme.

On the first floor we have “New York Baseball”.  Read up on the game, its players and history, to increase your enjoyment of the sport. The display includes books on the teams of New York, the Yankees, Giants, Dodgers and Mets and biographies of their players, such as Willie Mays, A-Rod, Joe DiMaggio, Babe Ruth, and Jackie Robinson.

We also have a display of “Mysteries in May” on the first floor. Nothing like a good whodunit read. For added fun you can listen to a mystery on CD and hear the characters’ voices come to life. There is a large selection books to choose from.

Our first floor paperback display has one side devoted to “Celebrating Agatha Christie”. The other side of the display is on the topic, ”Celebrating the Pulitzer Centennial”.  On May 24th, our monthly book discussion will be The Known World by Edward P. Jones, which is the 2004 Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction.

Our third floor health display is “May is National Physical Fitness and Sports”.  It has plenty of books with information to how to get active with exercise or sports.  The display includes lots of free handouts.  One of these books or handouts might help you keep your New Year‘s resolution.

And last but not least on the third floor is “Get Ready For Spring”. Fun ideas for planting flowers, gardening or just enjoying you outdoors spaces.  Learn how to improve your garden, build a deck, improve your patio and attract butterflies and birds to your yard.

Hoping we get some nice weather to enjoy the great outdoors and that our displays will provide you extra ideas for spring fun.
