At the Libraries: Bestsellers From the Day You Were Born

Miss Kathleen

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

Hey, this is very cool -- find out what books were on the bestseller list on your birthday! I've read exactly none of the ones on my birthday -- what about you?
People just love making book art, and I am always impressed at all the creative ways they come up with! Check out the latest -- book page origami! (Thanks, Buzzfeed!)
Usually the day after the ALA awards are announced, the winners appear on The Today Show. But not this year. Is Snooki to blame?
Speaking of Snooki, I know you are dying to read her debut book. But before you commit yourself to that purchase, you might want to make sure you are getting your money's worth. These reviews should help.

Okay, one last fun item! This LEGO library scene was sent to me by a reader - thanks, Jay! If you've got good links like this, please do share them with me!

Next month I'll have a new Blog of the Month to highlight, and I'm taking suggestions now. Email me if you've got one! Send your tips to See previous installments of At the Libraries here.
