Is there a Golden Ticket?

It has long been a trend for film makers is to create films based on children’s literature.  I am sure you have heard the saying, “the book is better than the movie.” In my opinion, that is certainly true. In order to make a movie, they must cut or expand the content of the original story which causes it to become distorted. Consequently, movies rarely match the experience that you have created in your mind while reading.
 

Black History Month Display

Next time you visit the Atascocita Branch Library, make sure to stop at our display on African Americans and the Civil War.  Please let us know if you would like to check out any of the books, or if you would like additional assistance finding items. This display was created by Circulation Assistant,  Janet Gibbons.

Additional Information

Underground Railroad, American Civil War

Most African Americans resisted enslavement. Whenever possible, individuals attempted to liberate themselves by running away. This Web site explores the history of the Underground Railroad that existed in the early 19th century to help enslaved people flee the South. The site contains topic headings, a chronology of events, photographs, maps, and more!

Spring will come early this year.

According to Punxsutawney Phil, America's most famous groundhog, spring will come early this year.   Since, most of America is covered with ice and snow, this is welcomed news that brings  a pinch of hope for warmer weather and sun filled skies.
