Additional Book Selections for Black History Month 2010

Once again, I have put up a book display, and I have a bunch of books that did not fit into the display case. I think these books are worth a look, so I am listing them here for any interested readers. The books on this list are located in the third floor stacks of the library unless noted otherwise. I would like to invite our library patrons to pick up any of these books, and if they do, to let us know what they think about what they read. Feel free to leave us a comment here on the blog.
