Worthy of Their Esteem | Northwood School Yearbooks

Worthy of their EsteemSeptember is off to a beautiful start!  We would like to thank the Art Bilden Family for their donations of several books, ranging from history, to school yearbooks, to political commentaries.  

One of these books- which will be of interest to American history lovers-  is Worthy of Their Esteem, by Iain C. Martin, a collection of timeless quotes from Abraham Lincoln, as well as an exploration of his character and beliefs.  Illustrated with fascinating portraits and photographs, this book contains Lincoln’s thoughts on marriage and family, death and bereavement, faith and religion, equality and freedom, and much more.  “With its attractive presentation and concisely told stories, it’s a vivid and true reminder of a great man’s life and why we’re still celebrating him to this day. I read it cover-to-cover and wished it wouldn’t end.”  — Maureen Mackey, Reader’s Digest

This week we would like to draw your attention to our collection of Northwood school yearbooks, donated by several of our community members.  With yearbooks from 1958-2006, and all the memories they hold, this collection is available for you to browse through any time you like during our open hours.  

Parents, if you’re looking for an opportunity to come to the library, consider coming in on a Tuesday morning at 10:30, during our children’s story time!  Let your little ones sit down for a fun read-aloud storytime, while you find your favorite books and enjoy a cup of coffee! We’d love to have you and your children join us at any time, and especially during this time of sharing stories and books.  It’s great to inspire an early love of reading in children, and the library is a wonderful way of doing it. Hope to see you soon!
