At the Libraries: Help a Library in Need

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!

Guys, we have a library in severe need -- their AC unit was stolen, but you can help them buy a new one. Every dollar counts!

It's always sad when a giant of children's literature passes, and Donald J. Sobol is no exception. Encyclopedia Brown lives on in our memory, and I know my kids will be reading them when they're ready!
*
Things always get altered when a book is adapted to a movie. Here are illustrations of the changes some Harry Potter characters went through: Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Snape. Very cute!
*
Pretty sure the answer to this one is "yes." But I haven't read it, so I'm just going by the gossip. Have you read it?
*
What's the best way to move books from one library to another? A human chain, of course. Pretty brilliant!
*
Bookmobiles are so photogenic, don't you think? Thanks, Janice!

*
As if you didn't know -- librarians are rocking out! Seems like everything happens in Brooklyn these days, doesn't it?
*
Here's a fun video showing what you can do with a LOT of books!

*
It's the question that has been driving you crazy for years: If Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield could text, what would they say to each other? The answer is finally here!
*
Little Free Libraries are making a difference in this midwestern community, thanks to one dedicated woman. (Thanks to Sara for the link.) And okay, fine, here is the same thing, but happening in the magical land of Brooklyn (which also has public libraries).
*
This library needs volunteers! I think we can all agree that reading books can be very beneficial, so if anyone in the Toronto area can help, I'm sure they'd love to have you. (Thanks, Robert!)

Thanks for reading, and let me know what great library and literary items you stumble across. Have a great week, everybody!
