Please note: We are launching a new website in September, and not all information that is typically updated over the summer will be up-to-date until the new site goes live. We will try to make sure essential beginning-of-the-year information is posted, but please bear with us. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Non-fiction graphic novels

Over the last eight years, non-fiction graphic novels have been on the rise and in a 2010 article, Rachel Cooke states "After all, graphic novels are basically comics, aren't they? And there's only so much a writer can do with a comic, and only so much pleasure a reader (at least a grown-up reader) can take in one." (Cooke). Her previous introduction to graphic novels had been through Art Spiegelman's Maus, which retells the life story of the author's father, Vladek Spiegelman, a Polish Holocaust survivor. Cats represent the Germans and mice the Jews.

New Books

Books constitute capital. A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, it is their only capital.
- Thomas Jefferson

We add frequently to the capital of our library and as soon as a book has been processed and cataloged, it will be added to this section. Therefore, we invite you to stop by regularly to check out our latest acquisitions online and in the library at the new book rack next to the mountain!
