Presidents Day

Monday, February 18 is Presidents Day. The library will be closed, so get books about Presidents now and enjoy some time learning about our great leaders. We have biographies of most presidents, and the following books will be of interest:

So You Want to be President? by Judith St. George
Commander in Chief Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War by Albert Marrin
Abe Lincoln: the Boy Who Loved Books by Kay Winters
When Washington Crossed the Deleware by Lynn Cheney
George Washington's Teeth by Deborah Chandra

My favorite is George Washington Spymaster by Thomas B. Allen--fascinating!
