September 1st ushers in the various celebrations of Hispanic pride and heritage beginning in Chile and Mexico and extending throughout the month for the rest of Central and South America as well as here in the United States. Come join us at the Todd Library as we too celebrate this heritage in our monthly book display. Many DVDs have been added to our collection as well.
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.
