Yes We've Got Those Too!!

We now have available a stapler, a glue stick, and a pair of scissors available for a 3 hour checkout.  This is in addition to laptop chargers, cell phone chargers, crayons, colored pencils, color markers, calculators, highliters, Sharpie markers, and wite out.  Don't forget that we also have flash drives that you can checkout for three days.  See us on the first floor (lower level) of the library for any of these items.

Iowa African American Hall of Fame

The Iowa African American Hall of Fame (IAAHF) was founded in 1995 and aims to recognize "outstanding achievements of African Americans with respect to enhancing quality of life for all Iowans."  More than 60 individuals have been inducted into the IAAHF; photos are included for some inductees. For more details visit their website at http://www.iaahf.org

Historical African American Newspapers

More than 65 historical African American newspapers are highlighted in a new research guide prepared by the Marist College Library. Most of the newspapers are freely available online, thanks to digitization projects undertaken by various libraries, historical societies, and Google. The guide arranges the newspapers by title, by six historical time periods, and by geographic area of coverage. The guide is available at http://libguides.marist.edu/AfricanAmericanNews

Young Minds Forced to Choose

 "Who Am I? Young Minds Forced to Choose" tells the compelling true story of young Jehovah's Witnesses who were quickly thrust into a political firestorm of Nazi propaganda.  Against the tide of coercion and terror, these youths took a firm stand of conscience, often times facing severe reprisals, despite their age. The exhibit, designed by the Arnold-Liebster Foundation, is an effective tool to assist educators on how to address contemporary student issues, such as bullying, gang prevention and prejudice. The exhibit will be on display from Wednesday, Feb.
