Each February, students in 4th grade through high school compete in Humboldt County History Day, held at Humboldt State University. Through the rigorous process of researching and preparing creative and original History Day projects, students learn and analyze issues, ideas, people, and events in history and apply that knowledge to their projects. The projects must reflect this year’s National History Day theme which is "Taking a Stand in History."
Come early to the Library to see posters, websites, videos, and more.  History Day events will be on the 2nd floor from 8am-1pm

A Pinch of Powder is the first book in the Pulvology series. Dr. Benoit studied chemistry and biology in college. He went on to get a doctorate in dental surgery. While working in Guatemala, he was captivated by a local story and felt it needed to be recorded. And so began his love of writing. Let's gather in the Fishbowl to celebrate this book launch!
