The College World Series kicks off this weekend and we’re celebrating with this week’s #ThrowbackThursday!
Nebraska Memories is a cooperative project to digitize Nebraska-related historical and cultural heritage materials and make them available to researchers of all ages via the Internet. The Nebraska Memories archive is brought to you by the Nebraska Library Commission. If your institution is interested in participating in Nebraska Memories, see http://nlc.nebraska.gov/nebraskamemories/participation.aspx for more information.
Hey, batter batter! It’s #BookFaceFriday!
Buy us some peanuts and Cracker Jack, with this #BookFace, we don’t care if we ever come back. This week’s selection is a collection of short stories, from a squad leader’s reactions under machine-gun fire to a small boy overcoming his fear of the barber’s chair. Mickey Mantle’s “The Quality of Courage: True Stories of Heroism and Bravery” (Bantam, 1965) would be a great choice for your next read. This book is a part of our NLC Book Club Kit collection, reserve this collection of short stories for your book club today!
“I want to sell you on something I respect and admire more than any single thing… courage. Courage will get you further than brains, money or athletic skill, and I’ll tell you why…” —Mickey Mantle
This week’s #BookFace model is Bruce Oorlog, NLC’s Mail/Material Specialist and avid baseball fan!
