Happy President's Day!

Let's take a moment today to remember two of our nation's most important leaders: George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. This year also marks the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth in 1809. Without the guidance of these two presidents, America would be a much different nation today. The NCC Libraries contain many resources on the fascinating -- and in many ways, controversial -- lives of these two men. Since the NCC Libraries will be open, why not come in and check out one of these books?
