February’s Book Displays

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Our first display on the main floor is a gift for book lovers, “Best Sellers You Might Have Missed.” It includes a large selection by the most popular authors, including John Grisham, Clive Cussler, Bernard Cornwell, Anne Rice, John Le Carre, Debbie Macomber, Fern Michaels, Jodi Picoult, Danielle Steel, Joyce Carol Oates and more.

“Books about American Activism” is the theme for our second display. It covers American history as the great experiment to begin the world anew.  Learn about the Civil Rights Movement for racial equality, the Women’s Rights movement, from suffragettes to Roe V. Wade, the Gay Revolution and the history of U.S. Labor Movement.

The 2 mini book displays are “British Library Crime Classics” and “2017 Edgar Award Nominees.”  Check out these displays for some fun mystery reads.

On the third floor our health librarian’s display is “Affairs of the Heart-February is American Heart Month.”  Read about your heart, how it works, how to keep it healthy, how to talk to your cardiologist, what to eat and more. If a book is too time consuming, take home some of the informative handouts on the warning signs of a heart attack and how to incorporate exercise into your daily life. Hope that this display will provide you with useful guides to staying heart-healthy.

“After the Inauguration-Presidents in Offices” is our second display on the third floor.  The books covers the White House and its residents through the ages. Find out about past president’s governing styles, their religious beliefs, the staffing of the White House, and the role of the First Ladies. See how history has judged our past leaders.

Once again the staff of SPL offers some suggestions for your reading pleasure.
