National Honey Month, Piano Month, Classical Music Month, Fall Hat Month, Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15th thru October 15th), Subliminal Marketing Month, Chicken Month, Back to School, Autumn Fun Month, Little League Month, and Kids Good Manners Month.
Wow! Lots of things to celebrate during the month of September, in addition to going back to school! Did you know the library has books about all of these things? Wouldn't it be wonderful to learn how honey is made? It's always funny to think about bees being cultivated to make honey we eat on our toast. We have books that tell all about honey and bees, and even picture books with stories about bees. How about learning to play the piano? You might be able to put playing the piano to good use some day to entertain others, or to even make some money. Find piano history and piano music books with full instructions for beginners at your local library. Another way to make money is to use business skills for marketing or use marketing in the business world. In the children's department of every library in Long Beach, there are books about making money, selling things, and starting a business. Little League Baseball is fun to watch or even play. There are books about baseball, the all-American pastime, at all our libraries. There are books which show you how to be a better player and books about famous baseball players. Kids with good manners please their parents, and the rest of society. The library has funny stories about children with bad manners, and when we read about these characters, we understand how important it is to be kind and polite to others.
I think many of us would benefit from learning about our own or others' Hispanic Heritage and the struggle many have gone through or are still experiencing to fight for Hispanic rights. We could also enjoy learning about Hispanic Culture. Find books at Long Beach Public Library about important people of Hispanic backgrounds who've benefited out society, as well as books about Hispanic culture and rights.
Wouldn't you like to check out books on these above topics to impress your friends, relatives, and compatriots with your knowledge? Your friendly librarian can help you find books on these and other topics whenever you come into the library. Learning new things makes for a more knowledgable community in Long Beach and beyond. Have a good end to your month, and get ready for September!!!
