#WeNeedDiverseBooks summer reading series! If you liked Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, try The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani because both have massive world-building, mysterious villains, and a malevolent tournament at its climax.

Several teens have reported that School for Good and Evil was the best book they read this summer (after turning in their summer reading form)!

We have The School for Good and Evil on the 2nd floor. Ask us for it!

NASA engineers use origami as inspiration when they fold up solar panels for their trip to space. Shown here: the Miura fold. Once a piece of paper (or solar array) is all folded up, it can be completely unfolded in one smooth motion. You can read more about origami in space here, and learn how to do the Miura fold in this video:

Okay, that’s just totally cool.

What we read and why we do so defines us in a profound way. You are what you read, I suppose. Browsing through someone’s library is like peeking into their DNA.
