November Displays


Wow, this month really snuck up on me! We've got all new displays up at the library for your reading pleasure...

In honor of American Indian Heritage Month, we're featuring a book display on native culture and history. There are a some especially moving titles included in this group, including Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown, Native American Testimony and In the Spirit of Crazy Horse by Peter Matthiessen.

Another display that is really moving is our "Non-fiction Books that Read like Fiction." The titles on this display range from biographies to true crime to travelogues, and they all look like fascinating reading.

November is also Diabetes Awareness Month, so we are featuring our resources on diabetes as well as numerous cookbooks aimed at diabetic appetites. Rounding out the displays is the always-popular-this-time-of-year Soup Cookbook display. Don't forget our Chili Cook-Off on November 22nd - bring in your own special concoction, or just show up for the tasting - 12:00 - 1:00 in Meeting Rooms A&B.

Of special interest in your Native American display might be Tony Hillerman books since he just passed away. He'll be missed by me and all his other fans.

Yes, he was quite a prolific - and popular - author. Thanks for your comment!
