Reference Texts Within the Library

For those of you who may not be familiar with some of the titles in the library, I have decided to create a digital display, similar to the ones seen in public libraries, in order to get persons acquainted with certain texts and build interest.

Hope to see you soon and enjoy the “book candy” since there is much more where those came from.
