We usually post images of books we have to offer, but today we want to highlight someone else’s books- Therbia Parker Sr.’s exhibit, “Relics of Racism” is on view at @the_slover through September. It’s an important display about historical portrayals of African-Americans in advertising, and he’s giving a talk on August 27. The Slover Library is one of the big things we’re grateful for, as Norfolk residents, and we’re so proud of them creating a space for exhibits like these. πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΏ

“Sailing is a continuous learning process, especially for this author…The sport of sailing is what you want to make of it from dinghies, to small and large cabin sailboats, whether your interest is racing, cruising, and a combination of both…or to enjoy reading sailing classics.”

CHILDREN’S BOOKS

May 8, 2017

“Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself.” –George Bernard Shaw.

We whole-heartedly believe in this sentiment. It’s why we’re so picky when it comes to children’s titles-we make an effort to only stock books we’d want to read to our own child. We love vintage kids’ books and hand-clean each and every one our selves. β™‘
