"The Eagle Has Landed"

We kicked off Movie Mondays this year with a tribute to Neil Armstrong (1930-2012) as we watched footage from and about Apollo 11.  We'd like to thank Demetrius for his help!  Keep checking the Movie Monday posters and the announcements for future dates!

Happy February!

February is Black History Month and we have a great display of books available for you to learn more about this important part of United States history.

The next Movie Monday (February 6 at 2:30 in the library lab) will be showing a film celebrating the life and works of Langston Hughes, a premier poet of the Harlem Renaissance.  All are welcome, bring your friends!
