When you stop by the library’s AfterWords Café for your morning cup of fair trade coffee, be sure to take some time to take a peek at the past.  On display in the café is a collection of popular and varied books from the 1970’s.  The titles range from children’s books, like Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends, to Bernstein and Woodward’s political thriller, All the Presidents Men, to Fear of Flying by Erica Jong.  They give you a sense of the turbulent decade – delving into areas of ecology, politics, feminism, and other important issues that defined the times.  Also, while you’re there, check out the chalkboard for a fun list of fab fads of the 1970’s.
