Salem Press Online
The Whiting Public Library has added a new database to its digital library. Salem PressHistory titles include a wide range of topics spanning American history and the world. Learn about important moments and figures in our past. Each book is designed with a broad range of users in mind: the student approaching a subject for the first time, the reader trying to decide which book to read for pleasure, the teacher needing a quick reminder of a character’s name in a book read many years ago, the graduate student reviewing for orals, the reference desk librarian needing to quickly answer a question for a patron.
