DIGITAL LIBRARY CONTENT ROUNDUP

trouble

Here comes Trouble! And isn’t he adorable? New to the Digital Library this week is a collection of photographs of traveling circus and theater performers as they traveled across the United States from 1910 to 1921. Check out this sweet pup and other performers in the full album here! We think Trouble probably stole the show.

 

 


HARRY POTTER NEWS

If you didn’t hear last Friday, J.K. Rowling has confirmed that her upcoming play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, is indeed a sequel to her book series. It follows Harry and his son Albus, and will be the eighth story in the Potter universe–but the first onstage.

Did you know—

Falvey Memorial Library stands on a fortified foundation, designed to support additional floors on top, if needed. (One could imagine that the structure would also support the fabled fifth-floor swimming pool).

QUOTE OF THE DAY

Hillary Clinton, First Lady of the United States from 1992 to 2000, former U.S. Secretary of State, and candidate for president in 2016 turns 68 today. Did you know that you can check out her autobiography, Living History, at Falvey? You’ll also find a few titles by and about Donald Trump. It’s never too early to start researching for the election!

HAVE A GREAT DAY!
