July 2017:
The Joy of Swimming: A Celebration of our Love for Getting in the Water
by Lisa Congdon

The Joy of Swimming
Summer is really here, time to get out the bathing suits! And to pick up a copy of what we are proudly presenting as the July item of the month — a little paperback titled "The Joy of Swimming." It's a fascinating trove of information about everything from the history of bathing suit styles to great moments in Olympic Swimming (butterfly added to competition in 1956) to Icelandic Swimming Pool rules and the fastest swimming fish. Lovingly and profusely illustrated by the author who grew up in California (and spent every available minute of her free time she could in a swimming pool.)
paperback; 144pp
