SCORE With These Books

Fall 2014 YA Sports Book Display

…it is football season, after all.

Seeing a bunch of great shelf-top displays makes me really angry that we only have tall stacks in my library.  In our Teen and Children’s sections.  Because taller stacks=more books! :D

Oh man.

Minus the Starbucks.

My friend Maggie, at the young age of 34, just found out she has a twin, and now it’s up to all of us to help her find them!
I love a mystery!
Please share this photo!

It’d be crazy to find a twin.  Good luck!

Raise your hand for mmimic if you work with the childrenz!

waves hand wildly in the air« Ooo!! Oooo!!! Me!! I do!! Meeee!!!! :)

*puts hands in the air like I just don’t care*

me too!

I just made my raised hand into a puppet—and began talking to it. Does that answer your question?

Paint covered hands are raised!

Ages ten and up over here.

Me!!!! We really need a good, unified tumblr tag for us! Any suggestions?

YA Librarian here!

*waves* Over here! Not sure what a good children’s tumblarian tag would be, but I hope into involves either Raffi or glitter.

I think I did this one already, but yeah!

These two pictures from the director of the Ferguson Public Library and the library’s instagram are also worth sharing. 

Library is family. Library is the heart of a shattered community.

A safe haven.
