Great eMedia at your library!

Did you know your library has great downloadable eBooks, eAudioBooks and movies? You can see them all in the eMedia Catalog!

Today's great title is A Story of the Red Cross by Clara Barton, read by S. Patricia Bailey.
Clara Barton was one of those diminutive New England women of the nineteenth century who was determined to make the world a better place. In 1881, she founded the American Red Cross to help the unfortunate victims of wars and disasters. She served as its president from 1882 to 1904.

The Red Cross of today stands as a living memorial to the lifelong efforts of this valiant lady. Here Miss Barton tells the story of the first 25 years of the historic organization she founded.

She shares details about the relief the Red Cross brought during the Texas Famine, the Mount Vernon Cyclone, the Johnstown Flood, the Sea Island Hurricane, and the Galveston Tidal Wave.

The stories become all the more dramatic as a living, eyewitness account told in Clara Barton's own words.
