May Reference Book Display

This month’s reference display is about medieval and renaissance culture. We have books on folklore, literature, warfare (including knights and castles!) and much more. With the weather warming up, it’s time for Renaissance Faires to start popping up in our more temperate climate, though there are faires to be found all year long. Head on over to  to find a listing of Renfaires in the Americas, and then get ready for the experience with books on costuming (as well as theatre and art) down in VPAL!
