March 30 is "The Only Plane In The Sky" by Garrett M. Graff
Over the past eighteen years, one perspective on 9-1-1 has been missing --a 360-degree account of the day told through the voices of the people who experienced it. In The Only Plane in the Sky tells the story of the day as it was lived--in the words of those who lived it. Drawing on never-before-published transcripts, recently declassified documents, original interviews, and oral histories from nearly five hundred government officials, first responders, witnesses, survivors, friends, and family members, Graff paints the most vivid and human portrait of the September 11 attacks yet.
Children of all ages and reading levels are welcome to join us every Wednesday from 1 - 2 p.m. and again on the second Saturday of the month from 1 - 2:00 p.m. for our special Read to the Dogs program. Learn how to read a-loud to these trained therapy dogs and enjoy the listening ear of a canine in a comfortable environment. No prior registration required.
