It’s National Library Week!
Remember being this excited to check out a book? (Maybe you still are.)

From “The Day the Books Went Blank”, a 1961 educational film intended to show the importance of maintaining quality libraries, from The Library Extension Agencies of the six New England States.


The theme of this year’s National Library Week is “Lives Change.”  How has a library, or librarian, changed your life?

Things you should be doing right now:
1) Squealing because this book is out today.
2) Reading this book after you’ve sufficiently squealed.
3) Repeat.
That is all.

    A pair of new YA displays in the teen area. The top one and first three photos is tough realistic fiction. The bottom one is books told through more than one point of view.

    I learned this week that a local teen committed suicide, and I wanted to do something since her friends were using the library (that was how I learned). I figured going the route of having novels tackling tough things, including loss, was the best way to address the issue without having to address it head on.

    It’s damn hard to be a teen.
