A Message from Morton

Every week, the Central Library issues a reference tip to MHLS libraries.  The current one is called The American Presidency Project.  It makes for interesting browsing in this season leading up to November.

Please scroll down to see more of Morton’s Enewsletter promoting events honoring the National Parks Centennial, particularly one taking place this evening, August 18.  And pick up a copy of Being Mortal for a thought-provoking River Read series discussion onAugust 25.

Note:  The meetings of the Morton Board are held on the first Thursday of every month at 5:00 p.m.  The public is always welcome.

Do you need prints or pictures to highlight a collection and/or form a display?  Visit http://www.loc.gov/pictures/ to browse the government’s extensive collection.  Choose a collection to browse such as Performing Arts Posters, then choose “View All”.  Peruse until your heart is content.

You will know if you can download or print a copy if there are JPEG or TIFF files attached to the image. I always mention where I retrieved the images. Some people may even want copies of the images you include in your display so it is good to keep a copy of the links where you retrieved the images.
