I bet you’re thinking that you have never read a banned or challenged book before. My guess is, if you have read anything by these authors, you have:
Cecily Von Ziegesar, Sarah Dessen, J.K. Rowlings, Judy Blume, Maya Angelou, Eoin Colfer, Chris Crutcher, Lois Lowry, Walter Dean Myers, Lauren Myracle, Mark Twain, John Steinbeck, Harper Lee, Ellen Hopkins, Anne Frank, Shel Silverstein.
Our website offers lots of great information: access to book titles, professional reviews, recommended book lists, and access to popular and scholarly periodicals. But, the branch also offers lots of traditional magazines for your reading pleasure.
We offer Time, Newsweek, Vogue, and Sports Illustrated, of course. We also offer Real Simple, Family Circle, Woman's Day, Cooking with Paula Deen, Martha Stewart Living, and several Taste of Home magazines.
Have you checked out Judy Blume’s books about Peter, Sheila and Fudge? If you have a chance, read them in order. But even out of order, they’re still awesome stand-alone books. I haven’t read these in a number of years, but if you or someone you know is looking for a fun read in the juvenile fiction area, don’t miss this series (or anything else by Judy Blume, really).
"Welcome," Betsy called down from the porch, "to the year 1890." And that's when it hit me. Those women who work at the historic field trip places? Betsy wasn't one of them. These weren't costumes she and Ron were wearing. Their clothes were for real. And in about five minutes, all of this would be real for me to.
Ever get so stressed at work that you feel like you can't take it anymore? Are co-workers, duties, and environment bringing you down? Head on over to your local Mid-Continent Library Branch. Classes like Basic Yoga (we have that here), What is Synchronicity?, and Face-Lifts the Natural Way can relax and distract any person suffering from workplace stress.
Oh yes, I am! I'm not sure when my need for a football fix edged out my love for baseball, but it happened. Mind you, I'd love nothing more than to be at the Royal's game today and the Chiefs's game tonight. What a kick, that would be!
If you don't share my enthusiasm or don't even understand the game, may I suggest some titles from our shelves? If you do love the game, you'll have fun reading these as well.
