Our first display on the main floor is “It’s a Spooky Time of Year!” stocked full of books that will help you get into the Halloween mood. Whether you need a scary tale to read, a costume to make, a decoration to hang or a recipe for a special treat, you’ll find it here.
The second main floor display is “Folklore.” It includes the classical fairy tales, myths and folklore tales and has an eclectic assortment of tales from round the world reflecting various cultures. Although folk tales can vary from different countries and lands, many contain universal themes, such family relations, love, greed, coming of age and justice. Also included in this display are some more modern tales known as urban legends.
The mini displays are “Library Reads” which is a list of the top ten books published every month that librarians across the country love and “2016 National Humanities Medal Honorees” on the other side.
On the third floor our health librarian’s display is “October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.” The books included for this display will inform you about the disease, its treatment options and how to cope with breast cancer in your daily life. Certainly good information for anyone who has been affected by this disease personally or as a close family member or friend. There are also a variety of educational handouts.
Celebrate “Hispanic Heritage Month” is the topic for the other third floor display. Learn about Hispanic history, culture, literature and art and the contributions to our American heritage.
As always Syosset Public Library provides its patrons with interesting reading options.
