At the Library for August 23, 2016
‘Shoe Dog’ charts how Phil Knight, fresh out of college, borrowed 50 dollars from his father, to start a business selling low-cost running shoes out of the trunk of his car. He made 8,000 dollars that year, name his company Nike, which had a mere 30 billion in sales last year. ‘Shoe Dog’ tells of Knights remarkable life, and how he was able to introduce something new and dynamic which would eventually change the face of sports and footwear.
Film director turned author Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter) concludes his House of Secrets trilogy with ‘Clash of Worlds’—as the series’ sibling heroes face the creepiest villains they have ever faced.

Don’t forget the Library also has countless gardening books, magazines and even DVDs.
