#Repost @warrenlibraryvermont | Happy National Friends of Libraries Week! The Friends of the Warren Library are so wonderful that they celebrated this week by purchasing a brand new book truck for the library! Uh-oh! Someone let the pigeon drive the book truck!
يعد أمناء المكتبات المدرسية من الأبطال المجهولين الذين يعملون جاهدين لتحويل المدرسة من مجرد مؤسسة تعليمية إلى مؤسسة تهدف لتعزيز حياة الطلاب وإثراء تجاربهم الفكرية. ويهدف مهرجان طيران الإمارات للآداب إلى تكريم العمل الجاد الذي يقوم به أمناء المكتبات المدرسية من خلال جائزة أمناء مكتبات المدارس 2018.
سيتم اختيار ثلالثة أمناء مكتبات لتكريم نجاحهم في تشجيع الطلاب على تطوير حب القراءة من المدارس الحكومية والخاصة. وتتراوح الجوائز من رحلة لأربعة أشخاص الى استوديوهات "وارنر برذرز" في لندن، صانعو هاري بوتر، إلى قسائم قيمة لشراء كتب! بادرو بالترشيح الآن ولغاية 14 ديسمبر عبر موقعنا الإلكتروني (الرابط في البايو). School librarians are one of the many unsung heroes responsible for transforming a school from an institution of learning into a life enhancing and intellectually enriching experience. The Emirates Airline Festival of Literature aims to honor the hard work and dedication of school librarians through its School Librarian of the Year Award.
Each year three librarians are selected for their success in encouraging students to develop a love of reading. Prizes range from an all-inclusive trip to for the first place winner to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter for 4 people, to valuable vouchers for library books! Make sure to enroll yourself or a librarian that you know in the competition before December 14th by going to our website (link in bio).

What's the oldest book in the Link Library general collection? A quick search today showed that it appears to be William Prescott's A History of the Reign of Ferdinand and Isabella from 1838. While the book has (disappointingly) been removed from its original binding, the dedication is still pure gold. #oldbooks#discovery
Another stop on @emilyroffesylvester's odyssey across regional Victoria, where she is gifting TWELVE copies of our book to the different libraries! Emily, along with @ballarat_birth_support, raised money to purchase the books from us by holding a Birth Trauma Awareness Morning Tea. And now she and her sweet little sidekick Daisy are traipsing from library to library, delivering the books! She says, "Daylesford Library accepted the book donation with open arms and a big smile!", which is so wonderful! Thank you SO VERY MUCH, Emily for enabling women in regional Victoria to access our book in this way - it is awesome, and so are YOU :) ⠀⠀

She-Demons: Victorian Female Poisoners and the Science of Murder⠀
Thursday, October 19, 6:00 pm⠀
1st floor Conference Room⠀
Explore murder and intrigue this October with Dr. Cheryl Blake Price, as she presents "She-Demons: Victorian Female Poisoners and the Science of Murder." This talk examines the stereotype of the Victorian woman poisoner, giving several examples of real-life murderesses, to trace this criminal’s development over the course of the nineteenth-century. It argues that the increasing scientific sophistication of female poisoners caused a great deal of anxiety in a culture that was trying to determine the nature of women’s education. Do women have the capacity to learn science, and should they have access to scientific knowledge if this information can pervert their minds and cause them to commit murder? The answer the Victorians offered to this question may be surprising, and Victorian womenpoisoners offered female thinkers of the nineteenth-century a way to challenge male dominance of the sciences.⠀
This event is part of our Women Heroes and Villains series, sponsored by the UNA Department of English and the UNA Center for Women's Studies. ⠀
This year marks the 125th anniversary of the founding of @uncg, and @uncgarchives provided our awesome University Communications staff with historic versions of our campus seal that they used to make banners that decorate our campus (as well as t-shirts sold in our campus store!).
The library is like a house of souls. Each book holds a different life that is ready to be born. •
So I've been going to the library a lot here lately. I've actually noticed a ton of perks about the library! •
1) You get to read the book before you buy it. Meaning it's a great way to save money if you are not so sure on the book! And just in case you don't like it, you saved that 10-20 dollars!
2) It's a GREAT way to adventure out to new genres! I honestly would have NEVER really read a contemporary book unless it was Rainbow Rowell, now I'm IN LOVE with some Colleen Hoover books!
3) It's a FANTASTIC place to relax your mind. Yes you can just sit at home and read and relax. But at the library, it's quite. You don't have to worry about someone talking cause if they do the librarian tells them to be quiet. So it's a great place to sit, unwind, and read. Also you're surrounded by books so to me I'm more motivated to read! •
There's so many other perks to the library! I'm extremely thankful I am able to purchase books. I truly am. But there's just something about the library that is just relaxing and amazing about it.
One of our Twitter peeps shared this awesome photo of her holds! We hope you’re enjoying this Monday to the fullest! 📚 📖 📚
Remember you can request items and have them sent to a branch of your choosing. Even better, there is also #linkplus and #interlibraryloans for titles we don’t have. #RightToLibrary •

The unlearning of Mississippi continues with the recent decision by administrators in the Biloxi School District to remove ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ from its eighth grade curriculum.
Censorship blinds us to the reality in ourselves, those around us, and society. ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ is important reading, not because it condones use of a racial slur. Rather, it reveals the ignorance of that word and having such bigotry in the first place. Preventing students from using this literary resource to learn about issues that make them uncomfortable only fails to equip them when they are forced to face those issues in reality. A broad understanding of the world is necessary in the development of students’ empathy, critical thinking, and understanding.
Harper Lee uses the themes of innocence, racism, and social inequality in ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ to hold a mirror in front of ourselves and society. Published in 1960, the story is just as relevant now as it was then. And as the audience, we benefit from hearing the moral voice of Atticus Finch right along with his daughter Scout — the story’s narrator.
Biloxi parents who oppose the book’s use claim some of the language makes them “feel uncomfortable.” Often the book that makes us uncomfortable also makes us a better reader and a better person. ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ is supposed to make people feel uncomfortable. That’s kind of its whole point and perhaps the greatest argument as to why its lessons are valuable in the classroom setting.
