From time to time, when we get a collection of related books into the library we like to share a list. Today we are sharing titles that have entered our collection this year that have to do with Presidents in honor of Washington’s Birthday, the official name of the holiday.

These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.
