different. Come in any time in December to see what our elf is up to. Will she be hiding in the stacks? Stealing staff members snacks? Playing video games? Messing with our displays? There is only one way to find out- come visit her!

The Children’s Blizzard: January 12, 1888 by David Laskin
[Grades 9-12]
Thousands of impoverished Northern European immigrants were promised that the prairie offered “land, freedom, and hope.” The disastrous blizzard of 1888 revealed that their free homestead was not a paradise, but a hard, unforgiving place governed by natural forces they neither understood nor controlled, and America’s heartland would never be the same. A Read for a Lifetime book.
No sign-up required.
