York Republican Women’s Club donates books to library

November 16, 2010

The York County Public Library recently received a generous book donation from the York Republican Women's Club. Marsha Brown, President, presented the books to Kevin Smith, Manager of Library Services, at the November Republican Women's Club meeting.
"These books are exceptional additions to our collection," said Smith. "We appreciate the support of the Republican Women's Club."
"The Making of America: The Substance and Meaning of the Constitution" by W. Cleon Skousen addresses the Founding Fathers' intent for each clause of the Constitution. Also written by Skousen, "The Five Thousand Year Leap: 28 Great Ideas That Changed the World" discusses 28 principles of freedom that guided our Founding Fathers. This 30 year anniversary edition includes two addresses by Skousen, the full text of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, and a forward by radio and television personality Glenn Beck.
Children ages 7-10 will enjoy "Veterans Day" by Marlene Targ Brill and "Memorial Day" by Christin Ditchfield. These titles explore the history of each holiday and how it is celebrated. "World War II Memorial" by Maureen Picard Robins discusses the creation of the memorial and includes basic history about the war. It is recommended for ages 12 and up.
These books are now available at your York County Public Library. Visit the library, call the Reference desk at 890-5120 (Tabb) or 890-5207 (Yorktown) or use the online catalog at www.yorkcounty.gov/library to reserve a copy.
The Tabb Library is located at the intersection of Hampton Highway (VA Rt. 134) and Long Green Boulevard, across from the Victory YMCA. The Yorktown Library is located at the intersection of George Washington Memorial Highway (Route 17) and Battle Road.
