Thirteen Days in September: Carter, Begin, And Sadat At Camp David


In Lawrence Wright’s, Thirteen Days in September: Carter, Begin, And Sadat At Camp David, presents a exhaustive account of the men who came together at Camp David  in 1978 to find peace in the Middle East. The outcome of this event between those three world leaders: Christian, Jewish and Muslim, was to reach an agreement ending 30 years of war. This book is compelling and historically tragic in what followed this amazing melding of thought.  In addition, you will learn a great deal about all the players and Camp David as well. I highly recommend reading this book.

Misconceptions on the Maker Movement and Maker Space/Media Lab at Farmington Libraries Connecticut U.S.A.


Misconceptions on the Maker Movement and Maker Space/Media Lab at Farmington

 The Maker Space is for everyone, not for Kids only! We have been “Making” here for over three years, and while the programs are often basic electronics, or computer programming, we have also been learning about BiblioBoard with genealogical applications; and knitting and folding paper into origami, as well as creating many other media  from simple objects as shown here at a recent program at the Barney Library. Please stop by to see what is happening here at the libraries and watch as our Maker Space/ Media Lab develops into a fabulous new way of transforming concepts and ideas into reality.
