Flygirl
 
by Sherri L. Smith


Ida Mae Jones dreams of flight. Her daddy was a pilot and being black didn't stop him from fulfilling his dreams. But her daddy's gone now, and being a woman, and being black, are two strikes against her.

When America enters the war with Germany and Japan, the Army creates the WASP, the Women Airforce Service Pilots - and Ida suddenly sees a way to fly as well as do something significant to help her brother stationed in the Pacific. But even the WASP won't accept her as a black woman, forcing Ida Mae to make a difficult choice of "passing," of pretending to be white to be accepted into the program. Hiding one's racial heritage, denying one's family, denying one's self is a heavy burden. And while Ida Mae chases her dream, she must also decide who it is she really wants to be.

About the library

The Friends of the Library Garden Plaza entrance, located on 2nd Avenue West, is ground level and is accessible to the elevator.  The beautifully landscaped plaza features inscribed brick pavers, cast stone benched and trees purchased by donors.  

In the fall of 2009, the house and lot across the street to the north from the Library were purchased by the Library Foundation.  A new and larger parking lot will be constructed on this plot.  Demolition of the existing house was done in April 2010.  The construction bid was awarded to Tooz Construction and was completed in late October 2010.  Landscaping of the surrounding areas was begun in the fall of 2011 and was completed in the spring of 2012.
