Endangered Species Day

Endangered Species Day is May 18, so naturally I've been giving more thought to that topic than I usually do as I tear into my favorite Endangered Species chocolate (I allow myself three squares a day.).

The library has many books, e-books and magazines about or related to endangered species issues. Here is a just a small sampling of titles:
One notable title, donated to the library anonymously, is Wildlife Heroes: 40 leading Conservationists and the Animals They Are Committed to Saving by Julie Scardina and Jeff Flocken. 

The library has several magazine subscriptions that might be useful when searching for information about endangered species. All but the most current issue of magazines may be checked out. Adults might find information in National Wildlife, Blue Ridge Country, National Geographic, E: The Environmental Magazine, and Virginia Wildlife, while children may find information about endangered species in National Geographic Kids.

Get details on donating books and magazines to the library.

You can also check under the headings Encyclopedias & Reference; Magazines, Journals & Newspapers; and Science & Medicine on the library's Articles and Databases page for reliable, current information. And, you can get updates on threatened and endangered species from several organizations online.
