Today is World Oceans Day!

To celebrate World Oceans Day, I thought I would put together a post highlighting some of the ocean themed materials we have available here at the library.

In our DVD collection, we have BBC's series Blue Planet: Seas of Life. If you are interested in learning about the ocean and it's various ecosystems and lifeforms, this is one of the best visual resources available. Here is a playlist I put together with some excerpts.

In addition to the DVD, we have a companion book for the series titled The Blue Planet: A Natural History of the Oceans

Other Nautical themed works in our collection include:
Moby Dick by Melville Herman
The Magic School Bus on the Ocean Floor
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules VerneMurder on the Oceanic by Conrad Allen
Ship of Ghouls by R.L. Stein
Tales of the South Pacific by James A. Michener
Fatal Tide by Iris Johansen
Dolphin Song by Lauren St. John
The Pearl by John Steinbeck
And many many more non-fiction and fiction books concerning the ocean and the rich life it holds.
