We geek quotes about libraries!
Story Monsters shared their April issue with us, which includes an interview with award-winning author Jason Reynolds. "Named the 2018 National Spokesman for School Library Month (April), Reynolds believes school librarians are unheralded heroes on campuses. 'I believe in the power of the school librarian,' he says."

We geek this blue library bus!
We all know, readers make better writers .
For one of my earlier books I was scheduled for an evening reading/signing at a suburban bookstore in Dayton, Ohio. After waiting about a half hour, it was cle...ar that nobody was going to show up. I started to slink off into the night, but the store manager would have none of it. She sat down in front of the podium and insisted I read to her and her alone. Writing is wonderful; promotion is . . . something else.
Get ready to celebrate National Library Week April 8-14, with this look at its 60-year history.

We geek this invitation to #unplug, sundown to sundown, starting this evening!
Please join us and #unplug with your friends, families, and loved ones in support of the National Day of Unplugging! The National Day of Unplugging is an annual... 24-hour period, running from sundown to sundown, of observing a communal digital detox. The goal is to carve out a specific time to unwind, unplug, relax, reflect, get outdoors, and connect with loved ones. It's a valuable opportunity to gain new insight into our personal relationship with technology.
The NDU provides an opportunity for diverse individuals, communities and organizations to join around the common thread of disconnecting from our devices to connect with those things that are truly important in our lives. Join us this weekend, March 9-10, from sundown to sundown as we unplug and connect to the people, places and things that matter. Learn more at www.nationaldayofunplugging.com.
