Dogs have long been called "man’s best friend", but the romanticized picture plays out most often as a boy and his dog. For some reason, more troubles and adventures seem to follow on the heels of young boys and their dogs. The following book series are fun stories about boys and dogs, but don’t worry, girls will find plenty to love about these books as well.
We have a great group of teens here at the Blue Springs South Branch. Join us every Monday night at 7:00 p.m. to share about your recent favorite book, and enjoy some games with new friends.

I get my Master’s degree this week, and have decided to celebrate. I’m going to Vegas, Las Vegas. However, this will be my first foray into Sin City. I know, me and the 5 other people in the US. As a newcomer, I am overwhelmed by what Vegas has to offer. To alleviate the confusion, I have turned to my worldly coworkers for assistance. Listed here are the favorite experiences, must sees, and memories from past bright light excursions.
The very word itself gives us a bit of a flutter. No plant seems to grow more easily and durably than a tree. They can sprout up anywhere and everywhere. They send out root systems ten times their above-ground size. They withstand drought, flood, and every other weather challenge. We climb them, hang swings in them, and build houses in them. Houses, boats, carts, furniture, and baseball bats come from trees. Obviously, all our MCPL books started out at trees. We use so many, and yet trees as a group are very forgiving.
Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell is one of my favorite books, and Scarlett O’Hara is hands down my favorite literary character. She’s spunky, smart, shrewd, and stylish. Granted, she can also be selfish, rude, and downright mean, but she is also a survivor. She endures hardships and struggles, but makes it through it all to do it all again with the hope that tomorrow it will get better. Because, "After all... tomorrow is another day."
