Hurricanes: Tracking the Great Storms

Although hurricane season typically peaks during the summer months, some geographical locations of the world experience powerful storms year-round. The typhoons of the Western Pacific are typical meteorologic examples of this pattern. Our current display highlights materials focusing on the history of the great storms. Come visit us and check them out!

New Posters at the Library

Come in and take a look at the new posters being displayed at Todd Library. They are reproductions from the Federal Art Project (FAP) made during the Depression for the Works Progress Administration. The goal of the project was to hire unemployed artists to create art for governmental buildings, such as libraries. The Project helped create over 200,000 murals, posters, and paintings. For more information about the project, see the American Memories section on the Library of Congress web site.

August Book Display

The month of August is remembered, in part, as the month the first Atomic Bomb was ever used in World War II. Sixty two years later there is still an interest in the stories surrounding these devastating  days of war and the Japanese people before, during and right up to present day. Come join us in the Todd Library and check out some of our collection on Japan and its cultural way of life.

July’s book display

National Women’s History Month Display

With March being Women’s History Month, the Todd Library took one piece of that history and made it part of our Featured Book Display. Our theme was based around the “Woman Suffrage Movement and Beyond.” From the struggle of the early days of the movement, to the abuse taken by the women, to the final victories won by and for future generations – all is covered within this collection.
