Display considers the audience
Re: Why not tell the whole story, Feb. 26 letters.
I would like to note that the Black History Month display (letter-writer Bob Burgel) mentions is located in the Children’s Department at Semiahmoo Library and therefore features a selection of titles appropriate for that age group.
I can assure Mr. Burgel and other readers that The Hanging of Angelique is on display as part of the adult selection of titles to celebrate Black History month, while Lawrence Hill’s excellent The Book of Negroes has been displayed on several occasions. Display selections turn over rapidly. A title may not be available because it has been checked out by one of our customers.
In addition to themed displays to recognize events such as Black History Month, our Staff Picks, New Books, SuperLoan and topical titles from our many booklists offer a wide range of items for customers to choose from.
Our NextReads newsletter, Book Blog and NoveList database also offer great suggestions for what to read or read next (http://www.surreylibraries.ca; Reading).
The library welcomes comments and suggestions. A written Comment Card or online submission which includes contact information enables us to respond to concerns, questions and suggestions brought forward by our customers.
