"You said I am a good man. But I am not a good man. I am... I am catastrophically in love with you." "He wanted to make her laugh. He wanted to sit and listen to her talk about books until his ears fell off. But all these were things he could not want and wanting what you could not have lead to misery and madness." "If no one cares for you at all, do you even really exist?" • • • #clockworkangel#clockworkprince ...
✨STAFF PICK SUNDAY✨ Judy, Children’s Services page, recommends Life As We Knew It by Susan Pfeffer.

✨STAFF PICK SUNDAY✨ Parry, Children’s Services Manager, loves books by the author Erin Entrada Kelly. “I love the way she writes about friendship – finding a friend, being a friend, and what it feels like when friendships change. I highly recommend her books to older elementary school kids and middle schoolers!”

✨STAFF PICK SUNDAY✨ Rachel, Reader Services Librarian, chooses Neverworld Wake by @marishapessl from the high school collection. She says, “I enjoyed the layered mystery and general unease. Just when I thought I knew what was going on, another twist would send me (and the main character) down another path.”
✨STAFF PICK SUNDAY✨ Kelly, our Volunteer Coordinator, says, “My librarian in 2nd grade handed me Betsy-Tacy by Maud Hart Lovelace and that started a lifelong relationship. I loved reading them to my kids. The books are a little later than Laura Ingalls but aren’t so different from our own lives.”
✨STAFF PICK SUNDAY✨ Are You Scared, Darth Vader? By Adam Rex! “I love this gorgeous book. It reminded me fondly of the classic The Monster at the End of This Book with Grover. The illustrations were stunning. I may have forced it into the hands of a few coworkers. Shh!” ~Brandee, our awesome Reference Librarian
✨STAFF PICK SUNDAY✨ Our Local History Librarian, Amber, loves The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper. She says, “Before Harry Potter I was mesmerized by the adventures of Will Stanton. I love stories where a ‘normal’ kid learns they are anything but normal!”
