Welcome to Book Spotlight

August 01, 2011 Posted by: Tom Dewey, Librarian

Introduction

The Jefferson National Expansion Memorial Library's book holdings generally reflect our park themes and include materials on the American West, St. Louis history, Dred Scott, Native Americans, Thomas Jefferson, Lewis & Clark, western art, the National Park Service, and other related subjects.

The library would like to highlight prominent books in our collection that offer something new or relevant to the ongoing discussion of history in our community. With this in mind, we would like to inaugurate a new feature on our website that provides a summary of a new or undiscovered book that might be of interest to readers. All the books featured in JNEM Library Book Spotlight are available in our park library, located in the Old Courthouse at 11 N. Fourth Street. Please note that our library is a research facility and therefore books do not circulate. Many of the books we highlight will also be available at local public libraries.
