National Cowboy Day

Created by Seana Zimmer, adult services library assistant at the Hillsborough branch

When I moved out West, no one told me that just two blocks from our suburban house, horses would graze in the open space for a couple months … delivered by real cowboys! 

Today is National Cowboy Day, and it’s a great chance to pick up a nonfiction book and learn some hidden history, discover cowboy artists and photographers, and even make a recipe or two. SCLSNJ has dozens of fiction series featuring cowboys, as well as stand-alone stories and Western movies. Try one of these today:
