One World Many Stories: Goodbye and More Info
December 20, 2010
I met a lot of wonderful, hard-working people in Jamaica. Jamaica is rich in culture and in history.
Having access to the wonderful geography and cultural databases provided by MCPL was a real blessing because they helped me prepare for my trip. Even if you’re not planning an overseas adventure, I highly recommend them as a way to learn about other countries and people groups from the comfort of your own home! You'll also be extra prepared for this year's Summer Reading Program theme - One World, Many Stories!
If you’d like to read more about Jamaica, non-fiction books are located at 972.92. We also have many biographies about one of Jamaica’s most famous musicians, Bob Marley, and Olympic sprinter and gold medalist, Usain Bolt. When you visit us, you might also like to try our collection of reggae music, which can be found at 781.624. If you’re interested in books for a younger audience, I recommend A Season for Mangoes, by Regina Hanson, How Spider Tricked Snake, by Mirna Benitez, and Pirates! : The true and remarkable adventures of Minerva Sharpe and Nancy Kington, female pirates by Celia Rees (also available as audiobook on CD).
