No matter where you live, libraries are being hammered. Not only do they have to make do with less, but their dollars have to cover increasingly expensive technologies as well as books. So far, librarians and library administers have come up with creative ways to keep services going, but there comes a point when it will be impossible to keep afloat no matter how Herculean the effort. Libraries are bleeding, not only here in North America, but in England. Many of us have stood up to support our libraries, but our voices aren't being heard. Philip Pullman, author of The Golden Compass, has added his voice to the chorus. Perhaps someone will listen if enough of us speak out. Read his speech here.
Hi, I'm Sheryl and I'm mad about kids' books. I read them, write them, review them and buy way too many of them to fit into my tiny house! In short, I am addicted. So, if you have an addiction too, check out some of the titles I've reviewed. Check back often, for more reviews. And, if it's quiet for a while, come back later. It probably just means I'm on the road visiting schools and libraries or don't have my laptop along to post.
