Library Theme of the Month
We are "showcasing" areas of our library each month with a different theme each month. This is a list of our "Themes" by the month. Click on the theme to see more information. Come into the library to browse the selections.
You will be able to "Search" the lists by using your "Control F" keys on your keyboard simultaneously. The SEARCH field will be at the top left of the TASK BAR. The findings will show in a "yellow highlight" throughout the list.
When you find the selection, the TASK BAR at the top disappears when you move the cursor down the page. The TASK BAR will return when you hold the cursor at the top of the page. Click the back arrow key on top left side of TASK BAR to return to menu.
