The Summer Olympics Games are Here!

The Summer Olympic Games start on Friday, July 27th.  If you are a fan of the games, we have what you need to get more out of your experience.  Visit our display on the second floor to find these and other resources. 
In the book “Basketball’s Greatest Stars” see pictures and brief bios of hoops stars past and present.  Do you think our new “Dream Team” will win the gold?  Which duo is better, LeBron and Kobe or Michael and Larry?
If tennis is your game, we have “A Game to Love.”  With Rafael Nadal’s withdrawal, there will be a new gold medal winner.  Could it be one of the players in this photo-filled book?
If you like history, we also have books on Olympic Games of the past.  There is “Rome 1960: The Olympics that Changed the World.”  Remember the names Rafer Johnson, Wilma Rudolph & Cassius Clay?  They all took part in these Olympic games. 
The last games to be held in the U.S. were in Atlanta, 1996.  We have the “Atlanta, 1996: Official Publication of the U.S. Olympic Committee.”  This book is filled with pictures and articles on the athletes and their sports.
Our newest book is "How to Watch the Olympics: the Essential Guide to the Rules, Heroes and Zeroes of Every Sport".  Do you know the width of a balance beam?  What about the rules of dressage?  With detailed descriptions and clever illustrations, you will discover facts about every sport in the Games.
Enjoy the 16 days of the games and...go USA!
