March Reference Book Display

This month the Reference Area of Helm Library presents a collection of books on sports. With the weather warming up here in Kentucky, it is time to think about getting out for fresh air and exercise … or maybe just sitting on the couch, watching your favorite sports team get their exercise instead. The MLB will open its season at the end of the month, and the Spring Schedule is already in full swing. Then there’s hockey, still in its regular season, and basketball too! What’s your favorite sport? Read about it and much more in the Reference Area at Helm Library.
