Our December Book Displays

As the year comes to a close, it’s holiday time. Happy Holidays is the theme of our first book display. Celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and the New Year. There are books on baking, entertaining, giving and general merry making. Anyone in need of how-to ideas for enjoying the holiday season will find them on this display. Also included in this display are timely Christmas stories.

Man the Builder, The History of Architecture is the theme of the second book display on the main floor. From the Tower of Babel to the Twin Towers man has been relentlessly  building. Mankind has built temples, amphitheaters, roads, bridges, churches, cathedrals, mosques, aqueducts, pagodas, totem poles, and modern skyscrapers. The books in this display feature various structures, take a look and enjoy man’s accomplishments.

The two mini displays* feature:

Congratulations: Maryse Conde, awarded the 2018 New Academy Prize in Literature.

In Remembrance of George H. W. Bush, 41st  President of the U.S., beloved father, WW II Veteran, Representative, Ambassador, Director of the CIA, Chairman of the RNC, and U.S. Liaison to China.

*mini displays are subject to change throughout the month.

On the third floor, the health librarian’s display is Have a Healthy Holiday!  Books on healthy eating, stress-less living, longevity, and more. Handouts such as Food Safety Tips for the Holidays, Enjoy an Active Holiday Season and Tips for Poison-Free Holidays, are available also.

1968 is the theme for the second display. 1968 was a watershed year. It was marked by assassination of both Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, escalating protests against the Vietnam War, and Lyndon Johnson’s decision not to run for a second term. Also it was the year that 60 Minutes and Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood started as well as the year that  2001: A Space Odyssey and Planet of the Apes premiered in movie theaters.
