December Reference Area Display


As we prepare for winter and its attendant holidays, the Reference area becomes a winter wonderland replete with snowflakes. The book display for the month accentuates the decorations with books on areas of the world that are covered in ice and snow for much more of the year than we are here in Kentucky. Enjoy books on travel, ecology, and much more with our frozen display!
