- May 26 & 27 - All libraries CLOSED for Memorial Day
From the poem The Beauty of a Horse (found on www.horseforum.com):
The thunder clap of hooves
The wind in their mane
The thrill of flight
And the birth of a spring ride
In some parts of San Jose you will still find homes with enough land to accommodate raising horses. They are rare now - most of us live in suburban areas and some in the urban downtown – but a few aficionados still make it work, keeping stables and corrals and raising these beautiful animals. If you love horses, whether it’s riding or betting on a race or just admiring their beauty, San Jose Public Library has loads of beautiful pictorial books on horses for you to enjoy.
