At the Libraries: Borrowing Cake Pans

Each week Miss Kathleen provides links to a variety of stories about libraries, authors, and books. If there’s something noteworthy going on in your local library, leave us a comment!

Did you know that one of the My Little Ponies is a librarian? Me neither! Apparently, though, Twilight Sparkle has a few things to learn about her profession.

Great news for booksellers: There will be a fourth Shades of Grey book. Bad news for literature, maybe?
*
A brawl is not exactly how I picture poetry readings ending. I think I might start going to more!
*
Last week we saw some great libraries using Pinterest. Here's a great reason to try Tumblr, too: it just might land you a job!
*

I guess I am naïve, but I had no idea you could actually pay people to review your book! Sounds totally legitimate... right?
*
I know there are a lot of cool borrowing collections out there, but cake pans? Way to go, Kansas! I'd love to know what makes these pans so special, by the way. Anyone ever borrowed one?
*
Check out this super cool bookshelf / room divider. I want many many many of these!
*
Eight-year-olds across America are rejoicing! Why? Because there is finally a new Captain Underpants book, that's why! Get the scoop on Dav Pilkey's return. (Thanks to Fuse 8 for the info.)
*
And we'll end with some more book art. Check out these great old-school cutouts!

Enjoy the rest of your week, and let me know if you have some great library links to share. Thanks for reading!
