With the anniversaries of three famous volcanic eruptions and the current volcanic activity going on in Alaska and Chile, the Todd Library will be hosting a book display on historic and current information concerning volcanoes. Did you know that volcanoes are blamed for “killing” the earth? And Underwater volcanoes are blamed for Mass extinctions? Come “check it out” at the library.
You may have heard of the Smithsonian Institution and know that it is located in Washington D.C. but do you know the “story behind the story”? Come visit the Todd Library during the month of June and find out about the benefactor, James Smithson and check out some of our wide varied collection produced by the Smithsonian.
In honor of National Women’s History Month, the Todd Library will join others in taking time to reexamine and celebrate the wide range of women’s contributions and achievements that are too often overlooked in the telling of our country’s history. Come in and check out our books and audio/visual materials either for enjoyment or a class project.
With this being such a “political year”, we have decided to focus on still another branch of the government for our February book display. February is the anniversary of the first session of the U.S. Supreme Court which met in New York City in 1790 with Chief Justice John Jay presiding. Come visit the Todd Library and learn more about the history of this governmental branch by checking out our selection.
