Molly Kane, Head of Teen Services and Emerging Technologies

Exactly a year ago, on December 29, 2014, I wrote a blog about my favorite (and not so favorite) books of 2014. It seemed fitting that on my last working day of the year, I would plagiarize my own idea and write about 2015's best (and not so great) Young Adult books. YA Book I Fell in Love

My older brother insisted that I watch A New Hope and Return of the Jedi with him when I was still basically a toddler. I was terrified of everything but the Ewoks. I friend in middle school rented The Empire Strikes Back for a Friday night sleepover because it was her favorite of the original three movies. It was then, in 7th grade,

I was definitely a Sesame Street kid. Thirty years later, I can still remember laying on my stomach in my parents’ living room to watch the adventures of Big Bird and Cookie Monster.

Exactly two weeks ago, I wasn't sitting at my desk writing a website blog. Instead I was in a conference room at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center giving a presentation to close to 100 librarians, library directors, teachers, and other educators as a part of the Pennsylvania Libraries annual conference. It was my first time

Well, I arrived back safely from my trip! I had a wonderful time - the weather cooperated, the sites were interesting and engaging, and the restaurants served us some absolutely delicious food! As promised, we stopped at a number of libraries. Some of them were large, some were incredibly tiny, but all were clearly dedicated to their users
