African-American History Month


One of our amazing volunteers, Nancy B., harvests and arranges the display books for sale in our display case at Reston Regional Library. During the holidays, she beautifully filled our display case with holiday books.  She has also done baseball, Father's Day, spring . . . you get the picture. Now she has done it again! Right now, at Reston Regional Library, in the display case between the doors, is a treasure trove of books that fit the theme of African American History Month books. 

If you are an educator, a collector, or an appreciator of beautiful books, you don't want to miss this display.

Here are photos of some of the books that were due to enter the display case.  We will display more on Monday. NOTE: there are a couple of caveats:
  • they may not be there any longer. Books in the display case are priced to sell quickly. But keep looking, you might see something you like more!
  • if you have your heart set on one of these and do not see it in the display case, or just want to inquire if it is still available, e-mail us immediately!
  • know that these are NOT on our Amazon1 or Amazon2 sites -- they are only available locally! They are also priced amazingly low -- just so our local customers can benefit!

African Artistry is a book of gift wrap. It is mostly intact and has the most beautiful patterns of gift wrap based on African artwork of the Ndebele. It is $4.

African Folktales is $5. The tales are retold by A. Ceni.

I Dream of A World: Portraits of Black Women Who Changed America by Brian Lanker is $4. The forward is by Maya Angelou.
