Hey! Banned Books Week is coming up starting this Sunday! This year has a focus on banned comics & graphic novels.
If you are looking for some resources to spread the word or to run events, you should head over to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund website where they have lots of stuff including two free downloadable posters you can print up to help promote BBW. I did the design above.
Oh yeah, and something else you could do for BBW is read Americus, by MK Reed and myself, which is all about book banning, censorship, and coming of age.
Random Fandom Friday! On Friday, October 3 come on in to the library at 2:00 PM for our zombie themed Random Fandom! We will make zombie crafts, chat about our favorite zombie series (Walking Dead, anyone?), and eat some delicious snacks. This program is free and open to students in grades 5-8.
It’s almost time to get back to school! Where did summer go? To get you thinking about school once again, here are some YA novels (contemporary, dramatic, humorous, fantastic) that are all about school daze. Days. You know what we mean. =)
"CUPCAKE WARS" at the Wells Library this Thursday at 3PM!
If you have a flair for frosting, a thirst for competition, and an obsession with cupcakes, come participate in our ultimate cupcake challenge, a baking competition like no other! Show off your cupcake decorating skills, but with a library twist! Competitors will be asked to create a cupcake based on a book of their choice and will be judged on several factors, such as design and taste.
