We the People

23 new items:  the libraries have received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association. 

Included are books for children to adults on 'A More Perfect Union.'  As we begin observing the 150th  anniversary of the start of the Civil War, the books are chosen to explore and promote reflection on the United States as a union.

Included are books on the Hispanic and African American experience and histories for children and adults on the Declaration of Independence, writing the U.S. Constitution and the Civil War.   There is also a DVD set  of the PBS Civil War series by Ken Burns and the accompanying book.

The books are on display in the libraries (or will be soon.)  If you don't see them, ask the staff for assistance.
