March is Reading Month!!

March is Reading Month!!


Get into the March Madness spirit with this cool idea from LiteraryHoots.com!
Starting with the Sweet Sixteen, each week in March, let patrons vote on which book is better amid your chosen competitors. Each book with the most votes will move on to the Elite Eight, then the Final Four, etc., until you pick your winner at the end of the month!

Advertising your next library or store event? As our weather improves, don’t forget the power of a sidewalk sign! Available in many styles on Amazon, use the plastic signs to draw with paint pens, which wash off with window cleaner but not just water (so safe to use in the rain). Get super creative! After all, you want to catch the eye of people driving and biking past. Happy advertising!

One week away until the release of Dazzling Travis! Featured in the IBPA Indie Titles catalog! #dazzlingtravis #newrelease #ordernow #wherebooksaresold


Picture Book recommendation! Authors Jessica Herthel and Jazz Jennings sketch out the story of 13 year old Jazz’s life as a transgender child with a loving, supportive family and good friends. An empowering, timely story with the power to help readers proclaim, in the words of Jazz’s parents, “We understand now.” (Age 3 & up)
