"True Love Is Timeless."
The Clearing, a tale about two different worlds, represents courage, and dedication. In this heart-touching story, Amy leaves her home to live with her aunt Mae, escaping an abusive relationship with hopes of "restarting" her life.
Last week, a 7-year-old boy took us on a personal tour of the Central Library Youth Services Department. Isa did a very thorough job of explaining each section of our children's area. Amazingly, he is also the producer of this interactive video. The film shows our favorite children's librarian, Clare Hollander, working behind the service desk, and our friendly Mr. Caterpillar, who enjoys greeting children and visitors.
Watch this video until the end--it has a hilarious ending!
Can you write a novel in 30 days? Will you take up this challenge? If your answer is YES,
you are in for a month full of adventure!
This month and in November, we are calling all young writers in Kansas City and the surrounding areas to join the exciting worldwide movement called “NaNoWriMo,” or the National Novel Writing Month. About 100,000 teens from around the globe will take on the journey of writing a novel and encouraging each other to write. It is fun and challenging once you get your first book written down, page by page.
It’s that time of the year in Kansas City again!...
