How They Croaked: The Awful Ends of the Awfully Famous by Georgia Bragg

Funny, informative, and gross, the author takes readers on a chronological graveyard tour of famous people starting with King Tut and ending with Albert Einstein.   Readers will feel relieved to live in the world of good hygiene and modern medicine.  The brief biographies are as enlightening as they are entertaining though many of the people are well known, such as Pocahontas, Mozart, and Columbus.  “Further reading and surfing” at the back of the book are there for those who want more.

Blizzard!: The Storm that Changed America by Jim Murphy

March 10, 1888, a massive blizzard struck the East Coast between Maine and Maryland. Through the personal accounts of individual people (including a couple of kids) who are surprised to deal with the extremes of temperature and massive amounts of snow, the author focuses most on the New York City area.  With helpful photographs and background about how people shopped, worked, and got around, the storm’s danger is fascinating, especially the attempts at crossing the frozen East River by foot.

Please see the new Careers & Jobs page in our resources section.  Free web resources offer information about various fields, careers, and help match skills and interests to potential careers.  As always, we would love to hear about any resources that we may have missed and need to share.

Also, it is now  easier to check availability of BNS/BCS Library books from home with a better search button on this site.  The green Search the Catalog button on the upper just became more user friendly for home use by taking you directly to our library site.  Give it a go…and click on the Catalog tab.
