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!

Ready for more book sculptures? Of course you are! I know you guys can't get enough, just like me.

Wow! Was it really necessary to call out the police to recover a child's library books? According to the library, yes. (Thanks, Joe.)

Do you need a library job? Well, there's a website for that! Good luck to you!

Guys, a library needs your help! Hurricane Irene was particularly devastating in upstate New York, and the Mohawk Valley Library System is still hurting. Get more information and, if you can, maybe make a small donation. (Thanks, Gerty.)

Nancy Pearl will soon be working with Amazon to bring worthy books back into print. A deal with the devil, or a boon to book lovers? You decide!
