Still Time to Get Your Norse On!

If you've seen the first summer blockbuster, Thor, several times or have yet to view it, the Al Harris Library still provides access to the Odinson for a few days more. We are providing a rich resource into Norse Mythology for anyone to learn more about Odin, Thor, Loki and the others. This display offers the historical background of norse mythology, retellings of the myths, iconography of norse gods throughout the history of art, and several graphic novels to enjoy Marvel's version of the Thunder God and his realm, Asgard.

Although the case is locked, ask for assistance to checkout any of the books in this case. For enthusiasts, a special replica resides in the case - Thor's hammer, the powerful Mjöllnir.
