June’s Book Displays

It’s that time of year, Time to Grab a Great Book and Head to the Beach, one of the main floor’s book displays for June – lots of fun reads for your extra leisure time. Pick up the flyer Fun in the Sun, a bibliography of new beach reads, here. Now is the time to register for the 2019 Adult Summer Reading Club and club events.

Our second main floor display is LGBT Pride Month- 50th Anniversary of Stonewall,  dedicated to books on gay, lesbian and transgender related topics. Some of the subjects covered in this display are the history for equal rights, guides for parents and family members, and issues for today’s LGBT youth.

 

Our 2 mini displays are:

· June is Audiobook Month – a selection of audiobooks.

· Become a Grill Master – have some barbeque parties and fun with these how-to books.

On the third floor, our displays are

Health Beach Reads, the theme for the June health display. I love to read for entertainment but it is also great to read for education. Learn more about health issues that affect you and your loved ones. What could be more useful? Lots of handouts included with this display.

The next book display is 75th Anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944 – all about the day allied forces invaded France to liberate Europe from the Nazi’s control, and one of the most important days of American and World history that we all should know about. It’s a tale of tens of thousands of heroes, and heroic deeds.

Syosset Public Library is your place for enjoyment and learning!
