So I have some happy news to share! There have been some exciting things happening. The first is that two weeks ago lots of the Children's Tween and Teen librarians went to a big library conference in Kalamazoo. They had to leave me and Miss Sandra in charge (but that's another story). While they were there, Miss Anna, one of our teen librarians won a very special award! It's called the Pletz Award. This mean that Miss Anna does a super great job working with all the teens! Great Job Miss Anna! I'm so proud of you!

A World Without Ice is a book about ice and people — the role ice has played in the development of Earth’s landscape, climate, and human civilization, and the reciprocal impact of people on the planet’s ice. Today, U-M’s Henry Pollack and Richard Rood discuss why ice matters, the delicate geological balance between ice and climate, and the pending crisis of a world without ice.

Re-bound : creating handmade books from recycled and repurposed materials by Jeannine Stein
Ever needed a notebook or journal for a specific purpose but couldn't find one the right size? Or one that looked cool? This book shows how to bind your own from a variety of everyday materials, like a hot water bottle, bathroom rug, or potato chip bag.
