The Dearborn Branch hosted a breast cancer awareness event Monday night, October 4th. We had about fifteen adults and teenagers look at the information. There were pamphlets and information for community contacts, plus cookies and punch. Several organizations, like North Kansas City Hospital and Turning Point: The Center for Hope and Healing, provided us with materials.

You’ve seen us around. We’re the ones who circle the library, pushing or pulling those black carts filled with books, CDs, graphic novels, and films, taking them back to where they belong. We’re the ones who come when you need a hand. When a desk clerk calls, we all leave our posts and "race" to make sure that one of us will get there as soon as possible. We are always moving. We are elusive. We are pages. (FYI: If this was a video blog, I would have inserted some sort of “James Bond”- or “Mission: Impossible”-type soundtrack at this point.

Have you ever wondered what you would do if you could go back in time and do a day over again? Sam Kingston has just had a strange day. She got up for school, met her friends for the ride to the campus, collected a lot of roses for Cupid Day, went to an awesome party, and died in a horrible accident on the way home. Sam Kingston is dead- or is she? When she wakes up the next morning, Sam is almost convinced it was a really bad dream. Worse still, Sam realizes that she has rewound the clock, and is starting the same day over again. What if she changed a few things?
The library has many helpful tools for teachers. One you may not know about is our Teacher Assistance program. You tell us the subject you need your books on, and we will gather them for you. Click here to find the Teacher Assist form online. Or, you can pick one up at your local branch.
In preparing for an upcoming trip down under, I started looking for a different style of travel book since I had already read the typical travel guides. I soon found the book Fly Solo by Teresa Rodriguez Williamson.
