November is Native American Heritage Month. We have a wonderful database – the American Indian History Online--which has access to more than 15,000 years of the culture and history of the American Indian. There are biographies, images, maps, charts and other wonderful information. You can find it on our website www.lclib.lib.wa.us under Homework Help. It is password protected, but just give us a call and we can tell you how to get in. This wonderful resource is paid for by the La Conner Rotary.
Here are a few books from the new book shelf. Come in and check one out.
Moon River and Me by Andy Williams. When in the mid-1950s Andy Williams reached a low point in his career, singing in dives to ever-smaller audiences, the young man from Wall Lake, Iowa, had no inkling of the success he would one day achieve. Before being declared a national treasure by President Ronald Reagan, Williams would chart eighteen gold and three platinum albums, headline at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for more than twenty years, and host an enormously popular weekly television variety show.
Amelia Earhart: The Mystery Solved by Elgen M. Long. A detailed chronicle of the last days of Amelia Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, and what went before, based upon an exhaustive 25-year study. Celebrated pilot Elgen Long and his coauthor wife, a public relations consultant with the Western Aerospace Museum, claim that the solution of the mystery surrounding the disappearance of the Electra, Earhart's plane, has never been found until now.
The Murder of King Tut by James Patterson.
