Mark the New Year with a Good Book!

John Dancy-Jones had the honor of providing the lobby display this month for Cameron Village Library, showing his large collection of bookmarks.

These bookmarks were collected over a lifetime of book gathering, both personally and as bookseller in downtown Raleigh for ten years. Many famous bookstores and authors are represented, but you can find unusual objects that served as bookmarks as well.  Some seem to tell a story.  There are miniature books on display as well.
