Happy (Last Day of) May Day!

While May Day (May 1, celebrated in much of the world as International Workers' Day) has come and gone and we are taking down our work- and worker-related book display, the work (as always) continues and the books will continue to be available at St. Louis Public Library for your perusal. Perhaps pick up a couple of books to read during your weekend, a benefit we enjoy thanks to the labor movement? Some recommendations are below: through these books (& their neighbors on the Library's shelves) you can revisit the history of work, or contemplate the future of labor - perhaps your own, as you contemplate a career switch or think about how to work better and smarter, or perhaps a more theoretical exploration of trends in, and theories about, the changing labor market? Either way, we hope you find something to fill your leisure time and/or inspire your work hours!
