Stop by the Giddings Public Library and check out some of our latest books. We have a nice selection of non-fiction books and several biographies.

It identifies missteps after September 11th, outlining recommendations for safeguarding lives and improving national security while preserving constitutional values. Dream: Discovering God’s Purpose for Your Life by Dutch Sheets uses Bible teachings and personal anecdotes referring to God as a dreamer who has shared this nature with His people and discusses how to become more aware of God’s plan and implement it in one’s life.

Teach Like a Champion by Doug Lemov offers easy-to-apply ideas for becoming an outstanding teacher. The Bond by Wayne Pacelle explores the special bond between humans and animals. It discusses research on the emotional capabilities of animals, examples of their inhumane treatments, and the ways in which a more humane agenda can be implemented through legal reforms.
