Think of All the Wonders We Can Do: Standing Up for Women and Girls

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.

Review: La Belle Sauvage

La Belle Sauvage (Book of Dust 1) by Philip Pullman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this! If I hadn’t been busy with holiday prep I would have read it in one sitting. 🙂 Can’t wait for the next one! I really need to go back and re-read the His Dark Materials trilogy in the meantime …

What Does Your Digital Footprint Say About You?

Did you know that you have a digital reputation? Everything you say and do creates an image of you. How people — friends, family, classmates, neighbors, professional colleagues, and future employers — see you will in part come from the digital footprint that you leave behind. This digital footprint is not only comprised of everything you write and post online, but also includes everything other people write about you and tag you in. Every website you visit, picture you like, and video you share will impact your digital footprint and shape your digital reputation. This month’s library display includes some interesting statistics and information about our digital footprints and some of the precautions we can take to protect our digital reputation. The books we feature this month address proper online etiquette, the potential downsides and risks of social media, cyberbullying and other pitfalls we may encounter while using the Internet.  Stop by the Katherine Brush Library to check out our display and learn more.
