Displays: Genocide, Poetry, Computer Literacy

Did you know that until 1944 there wasn’t even a word to describe the systematic destruction of ethnic or national groups?  

In conjunction with Genocide Awareness Month the library is featuring books, DVDs, CDs and other items about the Nazi Holocaust, and the Rwandan, Darfur, Cambodian, and the Armenian genocides.  The display was created by our Adult Services librarian, Jennifer Austin, a history specialist.

It’s also National Poetry Month and in celebration, Kimberly Clutter, our Young Adult (YA) librarian has put together a display of YA poetry.

Our computer technology teacher, David Whipkey, has created a display of computer books and manuals  under the title “Get Sucked into Technology”. See these wonderful displays are on our ‘round wall’ near the front entrance.
