March 14th (also written as 3.14*) is Pi Day!

To celebrate, we put up a little display of math books in the library. The display includes fiction and nonfiction books. Some are books of math and logic puzzles. Some are stories where the characters use their love of math to solve mysteries and have fun. All are math-tastic.

It might be a little hard to see in this photo, but here are the books in the display (from l-r):

*The Grapes of Math: Mind-Stretching Math Riddles*by Greg Tang
