Hi folks! Raising Readers is looking for your help again in updating their book lists. The topics are: babies, books and reading, childcare/school, health/doctor/dentist, physical activity, and separation.  They are especially interested in newer books from the last 5 years or so.  See below to help and enter for a chance to win a nifty beach tote!

From Raising Readers:
"Once again, we're looking for just the right books for our doctor recommends list, but this year, it's part 2 we need your help with. Share your recommendations through the link below for a chance to win a Raising Readers beach tote. To participate head over to (copy/paste or type in the following link):"

"...there's really no such thing as neutrality. But there is the side of truth, and there's the side of valuing the widespread availability of information. In making decisions about restricting information and banning books, a library can state, 'We are on the side of truth. We're on the side of making as many books available as possible.' If there's any institution that should declare that-that recognizes that we need public institutions that arm us with information and facts and context and constructive dialogue and debate-it's a library." -Ibram X.
