August Book Displays

It’s still the season of beach weather so it’s Time to Grab a Great Book and Head to the Beach. This display continues through Labor Day so you can choose from some light reads perfect for the beach, pool,or backyard. It’s a great way to enjoy your leisure time in the summer.

Another great way to relax is with your pets, the theme of our second display on the first floor. Love Your Pets displays dozens of books about pets and their care, including dogs, cats, birds, gerbils, horses, fish, and more. Maybe one of these books will give you some insights into your pets’ needs or behaviors.

The current themes for the two mini displays** are:

Happy 200th Birthday to Emily Bronte (July 30, 1818 to December 19, 1848), where you will find books by Emily as well her sisters, Charlotte and Anne.

Start a New Series has books that are the first of a series.  So if you like to read series, you just might find a new favorite here.

**Mini-displays are subject to change during the month.

On the third floor, the first display is Keep Fit This Summer. The Health Librarian has collected books with ideas for staying fit during the summer and also handouts about keeping fit.

In August we celebrate International Left-Hander’s Day (August 13), so the second third floor display is Happiness is Being Left-Handed. This display is a collection of books about famous left-handers such as Leonardo da Vinci, Winston Churchill, Bill Clinton, Sir Isaac Newton, Babe Ruth, Clarence Darrow, Whoopi Goldberg, Ronald Reagan, and Paul McCartney.

Remember rain or sunshine, it is always a good time to read!
