I spent a good part of last week speaking to the wonderfully enthusiastic students at Chelsea Intermediate, and I had the great pleasure of sharing some of my favorite books with them. I was so happy to be back, and I was even happier to discover that some of the students remembered me from my visit last May.

It’s no secret that Legos are hugely popular with kids of all ages. And, if you’ve been in our library lately, you know that Legos are more than just building blocks. They are just as popular in books, movies and video games.
With that in mind, we are working on getting a Lego Club off the ground here at the library, and we need your help!

The end of July here at the library usually means one thing: the end of summer reading. The end of programming, the end of frantically logging in minutes, and the end of handing out prizes to hoards of eager readers.
(Note: Saturday, August 4th will be the last day you can pick up your prizes, so make sure you hurry on in if you haven't grabbed yours yet!)

Last week, I had the pleasure of speaking to students at Chelsea Intermediate. Over the course of 4 days, I spoke to 850 students about the Frankfort Library's summer reading program (DREAM BIG!), booktalked some of my favorite books, and wished them luck on their attempt at breaking the world record for minutes read over the summer.

A few weeks ago, a celebration in honor of the life and work of beloved children’s fantasy and science fiction author Diana Wynne Jones, was held in Bristol, England. Jones passed away in March 2011, and left behind a body of work that has left a lasting imprint on the children’s and YA literature communities.
