May is AAPI Heritage Month, and recognizes the contributions and influence of Asian Americans and Pacific Islander Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. The reason May was chosen comes back to two important dates; May 7 and May 10. May 7, 1843, marks the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants to the United States.
Big Library Read is a global book club, facilitated by OverDrive, through your library that connects readers around the world with the same ebook at the same time without any wait lists or holds. The latest book available is Tastes Like War by Grace M. Cho. You might remember her as a Library Speaker Consortium Author back in February.
While for many, the Covid-19 pandemic is in their rearview, there are still active cases being reported by the CDC – with over 14,000 new cases reported last week across the United States (Arkansas Department of Health has stopped tracking cases, but the CDC shows Arkansas as having low community levels). It is still a concern for some and proper testing remains important.
Honor or memorial gifts are an everlasting way to pay tribute to someone who has touched your life.
