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!

The icepo! project is just too cute -- jump on board: http://icepo.tumblr.com. But remember, DO NOT adhere the stickers to the library books. Just insert them, okay? We don't want to mess up the books!

I think that article is trying to say that books stay with you, in a good way. But sometimes, well, you become scarred for life. Especially in those vulnerable teen years. Did the books on this list scar you? Anyone remember House of Stairs? So creepy! Also, Hatchet is awesome!
