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!

I had a friend who used to be a book designer and, as a book lover, I was fascinated by her work. Seems like the job is really changing now. Those e-readers are truly a disruptive technology!
