Happy New Year to all our patrons!
Our first display is Best Books of 2018 on the main floor. There are a lot of choices and all great reads. Included in the display are books by acclaimed authors such as Chris Bohjalian, Tana French, Barbara Kingsolver, Jodi Picoult, Ann Tyler, Kristin Hannah and more. One of my New Year‘s resolutions is to go outside my comfort zone and read books by authors with whom I’m not familiar.
TR’s World: In Commemoration of the Centennial of the Death of Theodore Roosevelt, January 6, 1919 is the topic for second book display on the main floor. A large number of books have been written about this amazing man, a naturalist, hunter, soldier, family man and politician. He made his home in Oyster Bay, New York which is now a museum open to the public.
The main floor two mini displays* are:
Amos Oz (May 4, 1939-December 28, 2018)
*mini-displays are subject to change during the month*
On the third floor, the book displays are in keeping a New Year theme. The health librarian’s display is A New Year, A New You! Books here include not only diet and exercise guides, but also some on other subjects, such as how to cope with various illnesses and advice on achieving a happier life. The handouts available cover various topics that can enhance your health and your life in general.
Today is a Great Day to Learn Something New is the theme for the second third floor display. It’s always a good idea to learn a new skill or to take up a new hobby. This display has some interesting topics such as solar panels, casino gambling and poker, swimming, horse riding, canoeing, collecting and lots of DIY (do-it-yourself).
We hope visiting Syosset Library and enjoying our facilities and resources will be a part of your New Year’s resolution!
