So in addition to having Kathryn Erskine come out to talk about her book, The Incredible Magic of Being, and having an astronomy professor come out to talk about space/galaxy/stars, we have finally chosen the book for our student book club. I decided to go in the direction of sci-fi for this book to try to get a different group of teens interested, and chose the book Friends for Life (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26186828-friends-for-life ), that features a ghost and her relationship with troubled kids.  I have bought 15 copies and we will hold a culminating activity during Teen Read Week with lunch served to the students.

Do You Speak Game?

At the White Oak Library District, I helped work on my library’s district wide strategic plan. The one place I knew we were failing our patrons was with families who were learning English as a second language. We always talk about ways to better serve our patrons in this aspect… Continue reading
