August Monthly Highlight: Meet Someone New... Read a Biography or Autobiography
During the month of August, the library has a selection of hand-picked biographies and autobiographies on display. It is impossible to compile a definitive list of best biographies and autobiographies. We have on display a few we think are noteworthy.
From Cleopatra to Barack Obama their names may be familiar but some of their words may not be. The library presents Quotes of Note a trivia game where you match the quote with the individual who said it. Check out our display case filled with the quotes from our highlighted biographies and autobiographies. Can you correctly identify the author's quotation? If you find yourself stumped or you guess incorrectly it is the perfect opportunity to check out the biography and/or autobiography and learn more.
