Olympics 2008

On this most auspicious day in Chinese culture (8/8/08), the 2008 Summer Olympics began.

There is much discussion and interest about the games...political discussion about China and interest in the athletes.

Here's the International Olympic website: and the website of the Beijing Games.

If you like to read about the Olympics, the libraries have many books and videos on the games, the history of the Olympics, and biographies about Olympic athletes. Sports Illustrated magazine is also another good place to read about Olympic events.

Look in the sports section--nonfiction 796, or ask library staff to help you.
