The theme for the first display on the main floor is Spooky Time of Year. The display includes ideas for costumes, trick or treating, crafts, parties and lots of scary novels. Loads of fun reads for the Halloween season.
October is Anti-Bullying Month is the topic for the second main floor display. Bullying is any unwanted aggressive behavior and occurs in many forms: school yard bully, sexual harassment, cyberbullying and others. The books on this display describe the various types of bullying and strategies to deal with it.
The themes for the 2 mini displays* are In Memoriam: Anne River Siddons, (1936-2019) an American novelist who wrote stories set in the southern U.S. and In Memoriam: David Hagberg, (1942-2019) a bestselling American novelist, known for his techno-thrillers. (*Mini displays are subject to change during the month.)
The health reference display on the third floor is October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A fatal disease which unfortunately is not rare, but can be easily caught in its early stages, thus making it treatable. Although considered a women’s disease, a very small minority of men get breast cancer as well. It’s a smart idea to educate yourself about this disease. As always, there are lots of hand-outs.
Disasters is the title of the next display. It includes books on both natural and man-made disasters, covering floods, fires, hurricanes and volcanoes. Disasters are a part of man’s and earth’s history.
Hope you come in and take a look at the displays
for fun and for education.
