Holiday books to curl up with over break


Now that the holiday season is fast approaching, you've no doubt been bombarded by Christmas carols, seen countless holiday lights and Christmas trees and menorahs, felt the chilly winter air and the wonderful Hannukah gifts you've received, slurped down a tasty peppermint mocha, and smelled the fresh happiness in the air. That gets all 5 of your senses in the holiday spirit, but what about your arguably most important 6th sense? Your... BOOK SENSE?

Here are a few books that will keep you warm this holiday season and give you an excuse to not talk to your weird uncle at Christmas:

My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories edited and with a story by Stephanie Perkins
Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris (not strictly a teen book but VERY entertaining nonetheless)
Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
Let it Snow: Three Holiday Romances  by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
Ex-mas by Kate Brian
Decked with Holly by Marni Bates
Winter's Kiss: Two Romantic Comedies to Cozy Up to by Jennifer Echols and Catherine Hapka
Winter Town by Stephen Emond
The Theory of Everything by J.J. Johnson
Truce: The Day the Soldiers Stopped Fighting by Jim Murphy
The Rifle by Gary Paulsen
Dream Soul by Laurence Yep

I really tried to find some Hannukah themed YA books but came up tragically empty-handed. Any Jewish writers out there?

Happy Holidays!!


MOVIE NIGHT!! I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO

Do you like Oscar-nominated documentaries? Do you like true stories? Do you like talking about race in America? Do you like Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr.? And most of all, do you like Samuel L Jackson's voice?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, come watch I Am Not Your Negro, an "Oscar-nominated documentary is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.”

Girls Who Code!


That's right! Girls Who Code is BACK for it's third year running! There will be an Open House on October 4th for interested girls. Girls Who Code and the Robbins Library define 'girl' as anyone who would take that identity for themselves so if you call yourself a girl, you are welcome here! The Open House includes a lottery drawing for club participation so attendance is mandatory for those who want to join the club. Please contact Katy if you have circumstances beyond your control that prevent you from attending.

Can't wait to see you there!
