Donuts"Picturing America"

In partnership with the LCHS National Honor Society and Media Communications class, a DVD exhibit will be on display in the Annex Building. Reproductions of significant American art, architecture, photography, sculpture and decorative art will be the focus of the exhibit, which will change bimonthly for the remainder of 2009. Students from the LCHS classes will offer a visual narration and interpretation of the reproductions.

"The Man and the Movement"

Feb. 2-13 the library will commemorate both the bicentennial of the birth of Abraham Lincoln and Black History Month with a large-scaled display of images of Abraham Lincoln, the Gettysburg Address, Civil War photos and the Harlem Renaissance movement of the early 20th century. This exhibit is free to the public and will be available for viewing in the Pegram Community Room during the library' s regular business hours.

Parent-child book club

There will be an organizational meeting on March 2 at 4 p.m. for anyone interested in a reading club for a parent (or grandparent, aunt, uncle, etc.) and child to join together. Participants themselves will determine book choices, dates and time to meet. Let us know what you would like to read and discuss!

Children's book displays

Come in and see our display of books about Langston Hughes, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, as well as Valentine' s Day. Whether you are reading for a school report or just for fun, we always have interesting groupings of books to peruse. We also have pop-up books and books with fold-outs to enjoy while you' re here in the library. Look for them in the Youth Services Department.
