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!

Here's a great children's book (that you are welcome to buy for my kid, and I thank you in advance). Andrew Kolb has reinterpreted David Bowie's Space Oddity as a picture book, and it is quite the masterpiece. Judge for yourself. (PDF here.) Can you hear me Major Tom?
Oh, that Roald Dahl. Such a kidder! Check out a letter he sent in reply to a class of students who had asked him specific questions about a story. Quirky doesn't even begin to describe it.

A place for every book, and every book in its place. Never was this more true than with this bookshelf!
Got an important message to get out? Put it on your carpet, like this library did.
A few images to close with, courtesy of Buzzfeed. And yes, one is definitely Harry Potter-related!

That's all for this week, friends. Thanks for reading, and email me if you have any exciting library news to report!
