It’s September and it’s back to school-
Syosset Public Library has started the new school year with our “Sy-Con” event. For those of you like me, Sy-Con means Syosset Convention. In keeping with this theme, our two books displays on the first floor are “Oh, the Places You’ll Go / Science Fiction and Fantasy” and “Fandom.” Have some fun and let your mind and imagination run wild reading science fiction and fantasy. Wander in the realm of unreality and the supernatural. “Fandom” focuses on pop culture figures, such as Harry Potter, Superman or Wonder Woman and the ever popular Star Wars and Walking Dead. These displays also include graphic novels.
Our mini displays currently are “Celebrating the Classics” and “Romances for the College Set.” Both topics are entertaining and never go out of style.
On the third floor the first display is “September is Healthy Aging Month.” It contains books on how to grow old in a healthy manner, caring for aging parents and guidelines for staying fit. As usual, handouts are included.
The second display “American Wilderness” is dedicated to our beautiful outdoors. A wilderness is an undeveloped land which retains its primeval character and natural conditions. Sometimes we all need to get away from the noise and stimulation of society and relax in the beauty of nature. These books will take you there. They may help you decide where you might want to take your next trip.
*Displays themes are subject to change during the month.
