Celebrating Black History Month with These Novels is the theme for our first display on the main floor. Some of the titles are classics such as The Bluest Eye, The Man in 3B, Invisible Man, and How Stella Got Her Groove Back, and included in the display are books by Maya Angelou, Octavia Butler, Ralph Ellison, Alex Haley, James McBride, Terry McMillan, Zadie Smith, Richard Wright, and others.
True Love Stories is a timely theme for February. Read the stories of Taya Kyle, Princess Grace and Prince Rainer, Ray and Joan MacDonald, Gabby and Mark Kelly, the Lovings of Virginia, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald, and Anthony and Cleopatra. This main floor display has many more great love stories.
The main floor Mini Displays are Happy 100th Birthday to Muriel Sparks and Binge Boxes Are Here. Binge Boxes are something new at SPL. They are themed collections of DVDs, packaged for you in a plastic case. Great for a “staycation” or a long winter’s night.
And on the third floor:
Take Care of Your Heart is our health reference display. Learn about the signs of a heart attack, how to reverse heart disease, stress management, heart healthy diets, and even tips on how to mend a broken heart. Besides the books, there are informative handouts for our patrons, as always.
Love Makes the World Go Round is a collection of all things involving love. Topics covered include love poems, love songs, the art of love, senior love, love and war, and even how the French invented love. You are sure to find some ideas to help celebrate Valentine’s Day.
*Displays are subject to change during the month.
