Get Graphic this May!

Why not take a break from studying with some relaxing and fun literature.

May 1st kicked off the month with Free Comic Book Day at participating stores and May continues with a selection of graphic novels displayed at the front entrance display.

Although fun and relaxing, this illustrated form of literature has a profound history in America starting as a children's form of literature to become censored nationwide to the embrace of illustrative styles from around the world and now assisting with reading literacy as seen through the numerous literary awards. Stop by the display and watch the computer monitor for the inside scoop to this popular form of literature.

Planning a Vacation? Visit a Park

This is the time of year when nothing can be better than to take a trip outdoors to experience the natural beauty of our country. With that in mind, there’s no better place to visit than a state or national park where trails have been created, picnic locations are abundant, and caverns and waterfalls can be explored. Learning about the history of the United States is another opportunity that is made available through a visit to a National Park. Take a look at these books, videos, and even recipes to plan a trip or just examine all of the options that are available for a great summer vacation on display at the library.
