The British Library recently launched a "Discovering Literature" website which covers the Romantic and Victorian periods. More than 1,200 treasures from the British Library collection were digitized. The website also includes 150 articles from 60 leading scholars, 25 short documentary films, and 30 inspirational teachers’ notes and more. "From Dickens’s urban underworlds and the polite society of Jane Austen to the radical politics of William Blake and the fantasy worlds of the Brontë sisters, explore 22 iconic authors from the Romantic and Victorian periods." There is a lot to discover. Fascinating!

our new gardening books in our online catalog. You can request these titles online
by placing a hold. New gardening books are also published monthly in our Architecture, Decorating and
will offer a GardenFest from May 30 to June 15, 2014. You can check out a pass to this museum at the info desk
