"The Day the Books Went Blank"

What happens if a library is not used, the collection not maintained, and the books not read?  Would the pages go blank?  That’s the outcome dramatized in “The Day the Books Went Blank”, a 1961 educational film intended to show the importance of maintaining quality libraries, from The Library Extension Agencies of the six New England States.

Remember your local library for Library Week (and every week)!

The theme of this year’s National Library Week is “Lives Change.”  How has a library, or librarian, changed your life?

New Goodreads illustration!  I enjoyed working with the limited palette, and always love painting books. Thanks Jade Change for the direction!
There is supposedly a downloadable poster version they’ll be releasing as well, so keep and eye on their site, if you’re a teacher or librarian or someone who likes books. 
Also, Happy National Library Week!
Oh I love libraries.

Day 8: Nostalgia
The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
This was the first book I ever bought with my own money. I was probably around four or five at the time. I didn’t actually read it until much later but I used to just carry it around and what not. Makes me pine for the good ol’ days.
Skinny Love and If I Stay.

Los seres humanos no nacen para siempre el día en que sus madres los alumbran, sino que la vida los obliga a parirse a sí mismos una y otra vez.
- Gabriel García Márquez (March 6, 1927-April 17th, 2014)[human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves]
