Banner for Display on Fonts

Library Display
The Right Font for the Job, EJA’s new display on typography, covers a few of the high points in the progression of typeface design and usage since the printing of the first book with movable metal type.

Typeface design has a nearly 600 year old history going back to Johannes Guttenberg’s famous bible ca. 1450. Over the centuries, typefaces have evolved as their uses have grown from printing books and newspapers to advertising, signage for fast moving vehicles, do-it-yourself desktop publishing and the current explosion of digital devices.
The display was created by Mary Kira.

Week of the Child Logo 

Week of the Young Child Display

In recognition of the Week of the Young Child, the Escondido Child Development Center created a display currently on view in the library. The display features photos of children from the center and art work they created after hearing the story The Crayon Box that Talked, written by Shane Derolf and illustrated by Michael Letzig. The story’s central theme is about tolerance and getting along despite differences. After the story, the children painted using melted crayon wax, blending colors together as a celebration of diversity.
