Everyone knows of George Washington; few of us know much about his education, businesses, and day-to-day life. Through paintings, photos, and iconic objects from Mount Vernon this exhibit takes a multi-dimensional look at the man behind the many myths.

The exhibit was created by George Washington’s Mount Vernon in conjunction with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, and was made possible by a generous grant from the F.M. Kirby Foundation.

Teen readers discuss Gate 7 volume 1 the first in the Clamp manga series. Graphic Fiction Readers is a book group for teens that meets on the third Tuesday of each month at the Trails West branch library.

From the publisher:
Chikahito Takamoto has always read about the beauty and mystique of Japan's ancient capital city, Kyoto. Now, two years into high school, he's finally visiting there for real. But wandering the grounds of Kyoto's legendary Shinto shrine of Kita no Tenmangu, he chances upon a mystery that his guidebooks didn't prepare him for - two handsome men and an attractive woman, all strangely-garbed, wielding powers...and fighting monsters!
