Live Every Week Like It's Shark Week

Shaq Versus Shark: Shaquille O'Neal Hosts Shark Week 2018

Actor Tracy Morgan said, "Live every week like it's Shark Week," but this week is actually Shark Week and it happens to be the 30th anniversary, making it the longest-running cable television event in history!

For those who don't know, Shark Week is an annual, week-long TV line-up on the Discovery Channel, which features shark-based programming. Over the years, the programs have “jumped the shark” to other channels and platforms to include movies, music, books and worldwide shark-themed events.

We have an excellent collection of shark movies, books and shark music here at the library, so if you are looking to celebrate your favorite sea creature, make the library your first stop.
