Felicitations for a Focused Fourth!--or the Alternative

When the Fourth of July holiday falls in the middle of the week we have neither the lead-time to prepare nor the down-time to recover from our over-indulgences. So either we have to be very focused or, alternately, we can stretch it out and declare a personal month of patriotic celebration.

We at the library can help you with the latter.

Our famous ‘round wall’ has a new display simply called ‘American History’. It’s full of lovely great biographies of the founding fathers and histories of the American Revolution. When you get through those, there are also Civil War, frontier history, and Texas revolutionary histories. You could celebrate 1750 to 1865 all through July.

You can also read David McCullough’s great book, 1776 and discuss it socially at the inaugural gathering of the History Book Club on Tuesday, July 17th. It’ll be in the Friends of the Library Room on the first floor, at 7:00 o’clock.

However you celebrate Independence Day, we send our best wishes for a wonderful time.
