The Northwest One library is elated to announce that one of our readers, Keyana Yates, won Beats by Dre headphone for completing Summer Reading! Keyana happened to be our SYEP teen, so we were especially excited that she won.
Keyana is a wonderful person who loves reading. Over the summer she got to experience some of what it's like to work at a library and we really enjoyed having her. Keyana made our Teen Space Summer Reading display. We also had "Keyana's Picks," where Keyana marked some of her favorite books with a special book mark so others might find books she likes.

There's something strange about the timing of this book. Someone at my library returned the graphic novel version of Fahrenheit 51, which I read in about an hour. I found myself lingering around the B's in the Adult Fiction section and my fingers seemed to seek out and clutch this novel, as though it was water and they had been turning pages full of dust and sand for too long. It was meant to be.
