Monthly Displays

Library displays are created each month to showcase the materials of the library. 

Each month a new and interesting theme is chosen.  

As we deal with the Pandemic that is COVID-19 let us take a moment to remember a simpler time. 

A time of dragons and castles and knights...OH MY! 

A thousand years of religious wars, cultural upheaval and mystic beliefs.  

Experience the art, the social rules, the chivalry and....the BLACK DEATH! 

Revel in the madness that is the medieval period!  

This display may be of interest to those studying world literature and history.
