Library theme for August: 'Isn't It Romantic?'

June is the month synonymous with romance, but did you know that August is actually Romance Awareness Month?

There are numerous materials in the romance genre to highlight--especially in the DVD (movie) format.

Take a look at "Romeo and Juliet," (in any version), "For Whom the Bell Tolls" with Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergman, "The Notebook" with Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, and of course, "Dirty Dancing" with Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, just to name a few!

Take time for a little romance before Romance Awareness Month passes you by!
