Happy Birthday, Mr. Poe!

January 19 was the 200th anniversary of the birth of Edgar Allan Poe, one of the best known American authors. In honor of this event we’ve put together a display including books, poems, facsimiles of his writing–even a copy of the Poe postage stamp issued this year. Stop by and discover something new or reread an old favorite. Then you can decide if, like Poe said, “Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.”0104poe

January Book Display

January is the month that we celebrate the birthday of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.  A Presidential Proclamation has been issued every year since 1986 designating the third Monday in January as being a Federal Holiday in memory of him.  Come celebrate with us and check out a good book or video concerning his life and times.
