As we’re getting close to the end of summer reading (July 26th is the last day to pick up prizes!), we’re already thinking ahead to next year. We’d love to know what you think! Please take a minute to complete this QUICK survey.
The news just broke… Walter Dean Myers has passed. In his lifetime, he wrote over 100 books, served as the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, won too many awards and honors to list, advised and inspired kids and young writers everywhere, and impacted thousands of lives. He was a lifelong proponent of diversity in children’s literature, and just a few months ago wrote an article that once again sparked the discussion.
Rest well, sir. You will be remembered always.
Beyond this, words fail me.
Not only did we lose a fine writer, but a trailblazler and advocate for more inclusivity and diversity in kidlit. A sad day indeed.
We’re heartbroken over the news. Go read a one of Myers’ great books right now.
Stop by Godfather’s Pizza and get a photo with Foxy (tag it with #molinekids)! Mark this location off on your scavenger hunt and return to the library for a chance in the raffle! (Click here or on the photo for a map)
Perfect music for a Monday morning, courtesy of Jake Bellows. Looking forward to his Thursday evening performance here at the library, starting 6:30 p.m.

The shelf speaks the truth - Friends will have some pretty good books for sale this Saturday, 9 to 2. Also, you can find some pretty good magazines, music, and movies.
