The 40th Anniversary of Woodstock is coming up this weekend. That magical event took place on August 15-17, 1969. In honor of this special anniversary, we put together a Woodstock display of Books, DVDs and CDs (on the First floor) including outstanding new material: Woodstock: Three Days That Rocked the World by Mike Evans, Paul Kingsbury, and Martin Scorsese; The Road to Woodstock by Michael Lang; Back to the Garden: The Story of Woodstock by Pete Fornatale and Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music Director’s Cut (DVD 2009). The display also features the music of the Woodstock performers. Why not check out a CD or two and experience a little of that Woodstock magic? A complete list of the performers and a song list of the three day concert is available for you to take home.

Wednesday, August 12. Men’s Book Club: “A Year of Wonders: A Novel of the Plague“ by Geraldine Brooks with Ralph Guiteau, Readers’ Services Librarian. 7:30PM.
It’s been 14 years since he published his last fiction title (Beach Music.) With today’s release of South of Broad I can gladly welcome him back to the fiction shelves. South of Broad is a sweeping saga that follows Leopold Bloom King, his friends and family, but most of all Pat Conroy’s beloved Charleston.
