Have you seen our “All Together Now!” displays? We have books for Pride Month, Juneteenth and African American Music Appreciation Month, Flag Day, and National PTSD Awareness Month, as well as ones about the history of the United States in general. It’s a celebration of all the people who have helped to create America as we know it, those who continue to defend it, and everyone who calls it home today.
Be sure to stop by and take a look!
Clark Memorial Library wishes all of its patrons a peaceful and enjoyable holiday weekend. Remember to take a moment to reflect on the service and sacrifice of the men and women we celebrate on Memorial Day.
May is National Inventors Month! Have you seen our themed displays? They include books about all sorts of inventors and inventions, both historical and fictional, as well as educational media to help you create inventions of your own.
Pick one up when you visit the Library and get inspired!
National Library Week is an annual event sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries of all kinds – school, public, academic, and specialty – all across the country. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries and librarians to the communities they serve and to promote library use and support.
This year’s theme is “There’s More to the Story” – a reminder that the Library offers a lot more than just print books! We can provide resources like audiobooks, digital media, DVDs, puzzles, museum passes, meeting and study space, technology access and assistance, a variety of programs and activities, and more. But books are still a big part of what the Library is, and we’ve been bringing in all sorts of new material. Most of it can be found on our New Books display, to the right of the public computers upstairs. If there’s something you’d like to see in the Library’s collection but don’t right now, please fill out one of our book request forms (available at the Library) to let us know!
