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!
Have you guys heard about this UCLA library rant? Yeah, not so nice. The chancellor has even stepped in. There are lots of other response videos posted on YouTube. Wouldn't want to be that girl right now!
Do you remember the Mr. Men and Little Miss books, by Roger Hargreaves? They are back, and it looks like they finally have the reviewer they deserve! One Hamilton Richardson has reviewed several on Amazon and has some impressive insight, such as "Hargreaves may well pay homage to Kafka and Orwell in this work, but he also goes beyond them." Indeed!
And another childhood favorite, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, is now a part of a national anti-obesity campaign. Yes, he does indeed eat a lot, but there's a lesson here, just in time for National Nutrition Month (oh, didn't you know? March is NNM).
A new library opening right now is definitely a cause for celebration! But this library is especially exciting -- take a peek at the "library of the future" right here!
