What are you going to celebrate this month?

Seems like there is a lot to celebrate this month. What I mean is that if you look at the 2010 Special month calendar you'll see that there is a lot of events scheduled for May. I don't make this crap up on my own. I really don't need to. Someone else has useless crap covered.

At the digital library we are featuring National Bike month because we had a picture of a bike club from 1897. Yeah, we do like to take the easy way out. We wanted to do Victorious Women month but it is hard to find early 20th century photos of victorious women. There was such a male bias back then.

Here are the offerings for May. Take your pick of fun filled and interesting (not) events.
