The Big Blow-Up

Today is the 30th anniversary of the explosion of Mount St. Helens.

And more recently in Iceland ...

See also: Mount St. Helens VolcanoCams - Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument

We have lots of books about volcanoes. Specifically on Mount St. Helens, see:
J 551.21 FURGANG Mount St. Helens : the smoking mountain by Kathy Furgang.

By the way, searching for information on the 1980 eruption can be tricky.
Try Mount Saint Helens

Book Donations

The book sale is tomorrow, Saturday the 15th, and we have no room for more books. Please do not bring donations to the sale itself, or to the library, until sometime after the sale when we announce that we are again eagerly accepting donations.

Come buy books so that we can clear out our small storage space in anticipation of the next sale. We will let you know when it is time to resume donations.

And many thanks to all who donated such lovely books.

(The note in the Gazette was wrong. We cannot accept books at the sale itself. )
