Did you know that May is Jewish American Heritage Month? Since 2006, an annual proclamation has been made by the President of the United States to designate May as a time to recognize the achievements and contributions of Jewish Americans. Here at the Katharine Brush Library, we are recognizing Jewish American Heritage Month with a display on the first floor of books and ebooks that may be of interest to anyone looking to learn more about the history of Jewish Americans. Come check it out!
The Katharine Brush Library is celebrating National Poetry Month this April with a special display of book spine poetry on the second floor! Never heard of Book Spine Poetry? Book spine poetry is when you create poems using the titles that appear on the spines of books. Come check out ours and share your ideas for additional poems with us!
In observance of Women’s History Month, the Katharine Brush Library has put up a Think of All the Wonders We Can Do: Standing Up for the Empowerment of Women and Girls book display on the second floor. Wonder Woman shares her tiara this month with notable women like Gloria Steinem, Hillary Clinton, and Ella Grasso, along with lesser known pioneers like American women soldiers and sports players. Sharing these women’s stories not only helps to remind us of our past, but also inspires us to work toward a better future for everyone. This month’s book display further reminds all women that we are all Wonder Women.
