Join us between 13 and 19 April as we celebrate National Library Week. We are celebrating ‘something classical’ this year. We have beautifully illustrated copies of The Sea Wolf by Jack London, O Pioneers! by Willa Cather, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson just to name a few. We are also fortunate to have on loan to us from the West Point library, the “Wishbone” young reader classics: Frankenstein, Oliver Twist, and Journey to the Center of the Earth. Lose yourself in these works of art and know then why they are called classics.
“Lives Change at your Library” is this years National Library Week theme. Can books really change lives? I believe so. People read to relax, learn, escape, discover and emulate. Some people think reading is just something to do when there is nothing else to do, others make it an integral part of their daily or nightly routine. Why do you read? Share your thoughts!
