New Year, New Series

Many people love a series! They enjoy watching characters grow, relationships change, and worlds being created. Some readers read the books right when they come out and wait in anticipation until the next one is released. Others like to hear about a series that has several titles so that they can dive in and read them all straight through -- kind of like binge watching your favorite t.v. show! One thing I know for sure is that everyone hates when their favorite series is over.

Grown-Ups, Let's Give the Kids a Little Summer Learning Competition

As we edge toward the end of summer (North Kitsap School District students start school again on August 31) library staff has been delighted by a steady stream of children who have completed their ten hours of reading for Summer Learning. Nothing makes us happier than getting to talk with the sometimes shy, sometimes not so shy, young people who patiently wait in line in order to proudly show staff their completed trackers and receive their prizes- a book and a Kitsap County Fair ticket.
