In the early morning hours of April 15th, 1912, the RMS Titanic sank into the cold Atlantic ocean after striking an iceberg only a few hours before. It was one of the worst nautical accidents in history, and has been the center of many books, movies, and websites. We even had a special Titanic Craft Night at the library on the 100th anniversary of the sinking, where we all made our own Titanics to take home.
Today is Titanic Remembrance Day, and if you’re interested in learning more about that fateful voyage, we have lots of fascinating new books at the library about it!
Of course, there are many more to choose from, in the adult section as well as the juvenile area, so drop in and ask us where to find them. This will remain a fascinating topic for many years to come.
