Happy Presidents' Day!


The Library is closed today to celebrate the Presidents' Day Federal holiday.

We have plenty of books on George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, especially in our children's biography section. Two more recent ones are Abe's Honest Words: The Life of Abraham Lincoln by Doreen Rappaport [J B LIN] and Farmer George Plants a Nation by Peggy Thomas [J B WAS].

A rather interesting twist on the traditional Abraham Lincoln book for kids is Old Abe Lincon: An Old Tune With New Lyrics by Jim Aylesworth [JP AYL].
Wise Abe Lincoln said, "No More!" to slavery,

"No More!" to slavery,

"No More!" to slavery,

Wise Abe Lincoln said, "No More!" to slavery,

Many brave days ago.

This simple song, sung to the tune of "The Old Grey Mare," was adapted from an actual campaign song for Lincoln during his run for the presidency.
Enjoy the day and we'll see everyone tomorrow when the Library reopens at 9:00 AM.
