It's May and there are all sorts of things to celebrate this month. As I was looking through our copy of Chase's Annual Events [R 394.26 CHA], I found that many of the events listed had to do with medical condition awareness. For example, May is (in alphabetical order) Allergy/Asthma, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Hearing and Speech, Hepatitis, Huntington's Disease, Medical Orphans (a.k.a. rare diseases), Melanoma, Mental Health, Osteoporosis, Stroke, Vision Awareness or Prevention Month. It got a little depressing by time I finished browsing the month!
However, May is also National Invention Month. Bike, and Tennis Month, too. And, it is also the month to celebrate Salsa (the edible kind, not the danceable kind), Vinegar, Barbecue, and Hamburgers! I believe we have the makings for a party! So come down to the Library to borrow one or more of these titles and party hearty:
