Well, we've missed the actual day (November 10) of Neil Gaiman's birthday, but it's never too late to celebrate a wonderful author! He's gotten a lot of attention this year between winning the Newbery Award for The Graveyard Book, and the release of the film version of Coraline. If those piqued your interest, you might enjoy other books by Neil Gaiman. You'll find them all over the library, for Children, Teens and Adults.
If you have seen the movie, want to see the movie, or just love creepy books, then this book is for. Check out the official movie page here and don't forget to put a hold on the book.
In 1990 President George H. W. Bush approved a joint resolution designating November 1990 National American Indian Heritage Month. Similar proclamations have been issued each year since 1994. The National Register of Historic Places has put together a list of sites promoting the history and culture of Native Americans. The following Special Collection is designed to highlight some of the library's many resources about Native Americans.
Historical Dictionary of North American Archaeology edited by Edward B. Jelks: This comprehensive guide to mainly prehistoric sites, cultures and artifacts in the United States and Canada features some 1800 signed entries by 151 expert contributors.
American Indians edited by Harvey Markowitz: This three-volume set, arranged alphabetically in an encyclopedia style, highlights hundreds of important characters, events, places and concepts in Native American culture. Also included are a timeline, addresses of educational institutions, agencies, museums as well as statistical information.
Many of us have ancestors who made their way from foreign lands to a small island at the mouth of the Hudson River. Once known as Little Oyster Island, Ellis Island acquired it's present name from a colonial New Yorker named Samuel Ellis. The immigration station opened in 1892 where 12 million immigrants were processed before it wound down in 1924 and finally closed in November of 1954. For every thousand weary faces that passed through there were a thousand different stories of hope, promise and anticipation.
An excellent new book on the topic is American Passage: The History of Ellis Island by Vincent J. Cannato. Learn more about this place and the people who came together to form this unique blend of customs and cultures we call America.
