Our first main floor display is “Down But Not Out”, a collection of former best sellers and classics. It includes books by authors such as Joyce Carol Oates, Lewis Carroll, John Irving, Bernard Cornwell and Jamaica Kincaid. Check out this display for a great read.
In honor of Veterans Day our second display is “Patriot’s Game.” It’s a tribute to our military heroes and includes stories of various wars and battles that brave men and women, both officers and soldiers, fought. The display aims at giving a sense of history from the late 1700s until the present day of the U.S. military. Many biographies are also included.
Our two mini book displays are the “2017 National Book Awards” which celebrates great literature and the prolific author Patricia Highsmith. Some of her books have been made into movies including The Talented Mr. Ripley, Carol, and Strangers on the Train . These are also to be found on the main floor.
On the third floor our health reference display is “National Diabetes Awareness.” Learn how to manage this common disease. Information on weight loss plans, exercise options, insulin pumps and glucose monitoring devices can be found here. Both books and handouts are available.
Yes, it’s November and time to vote. “Gaining the Right to Vote. Exercising that Right” is our second third floor display. Read about the long trail to equal access to the ballot – an interesting topic still hot in the news.
Of course our displays aren’t just books but include audio books and DVDs.
