The Dog Days of Summer
Holy cow, it’s already time for the July 2018 edition of our monthly mini-marketing campaign.
What’s going on in America during the month of July? How about our nation’s 242nd birthday for starters? There’s also National Dance Day, National Chili Dog Day, and National Ice Cream Month. In fact, there’s at least one food or drink celebrated on every single day of July, the only month of the year that can make that claim.
For July we’re highlighting the proud library tradition of summer reading and promoting NoveList Plus, a powerful reading resource available to Wyoming residents by way of GoWyld.net. NoveList Plus is a full-featured database that provides recommended reading lists. According to its inventor Duncan Smith, NoveList Plus is a "secret weapon for keeping track of all the great books to recommend."
Visit Ebsco’s NoveList Plus and find inspiration for what to read next.
