More light and fun reading for the beach… this display keeps getting bigger and better, so stop by for some entertainment at the beach, pool or just in your back yard. “Beach Reads” includes lots of popular titles that you might have missed.

Our second book display on the first floor is “Incredible True Stories.”  What a fascinating collection. It has biographies of inventors and inventions, such Steve Jobs, the Wright Brothers and the story of photography; tales of war heroes from George Washington, The Fly Boys, Heroes of 9/11 to Heroes Among Us; survival stories including The Envoy and The Perfect Storm; athletic feats in books such as The Perfect Mile, Triumph (Jesse Owens) and Friday Night Lights.  The collection also includes books on the topics of religion, psychology and history.

The mini display is on “Elie Wiesel” another incredible story of survival and human triumph.  On the other side we have a nice selection of “Audiobooks” which make great travel companions for car trips.

Our third floor health display is “Have a Healthy and Safe Summer” which features a varied collection related to staying happy and healthy during the summer. Handouts are there for you on sun safety for infants, teaching children summer safety, weather safety, tips for safe gas grilling and more.

“To the Moon and Beyond” is the second display on the third floor. It covers the history of space exploration from unmanned flights, manned flights, landing on the moon, research on Mars, space shuttles and the Hubbell Space telescope. What a great ride!
