The Ends of the World

It's THE ENDS OF THE WORLD as we know it.

The Ends of the World by Maggie Hall
This is the thrilling conclusion to The Conspiracy of Us, the romantic adventure series that calls, a “Da Vinci Code-style thriller for teens.”  Power balances on a knife’s edge. Destiny is uncertain. And love is the most terrifying thing of all.  The Circle of Twelve is not who Avery though they were. Neither is Avery.  Her mother is dead. Betrayal and attraction and history have tangled the strings that bind her, Jack, and Stellan. And now, Avery and her friends must put aside their own problems and focus on putting a stop to the most dangerous conspiracy of all.  From London to Russia to Egypt, from the chill of underground crypts to the flash of paparazzi cameras, Avery West will finally have to confront whether her fate means salvation–or destruction.

Wild Ride Through Women's History

Motor Girls: How Women Took the Wheel and Boldly Drove Into the Twentieth Century by Sue Macy
J  629.28 MAC
Come along for a joy ride in this enthralling tribute to the daring women – Motor Girls, as they were called at the turn of the century – who got behind the wheel of the first cars and paved the way for change. The automobile has always symbolized freedom, and in this book we meet the first generation of female motorists who drove cars for fun, profit, and to make a statement about the evolving role of women. From the advent of the auto in the 1890s to the 1920s when the breaking down of barriers for women was in full swing, readers will be delighted to see historical photos, art, and artifacts and to discover the many ways these progressive females influenced fashion, the economy, politics, and the world around them.

If you're interested in using this book in the classroom, there's an excellent Educator Guide available through National Geographic.  You may also enjoy the interview with the author available on The Children's Book Review blog.

If you'd like to read Macy's other book devoted to women on the move, check out Wheels of Change: How Women Rode the Bicycle to Freedom (With a Few Flat Tires Along the Way).  You'll find it in the Kid Zone, J  796.6  MAC.

Around the Room in 80 Minutes

Take a world tour without leaving the library.  Listen to music, eat food and discover new cultures at our Around the Room in 80 Minutes teen summer finale party on Monday, July 17, 2017 at 6:30 p.m.  We'll sample some of our favorite foods that came to us from other cultures -- like pizza and pico de gallo -- plus taste test some exotic candies.  We'll even choose our favorite from a selection of international chocolates.  There will be basket weaving (with inspiration from many cultures) and bracelet making (in the Kenyan style using colorful beads).  This event is for teens, grades 7-12.  You do not have to RSVP to this event.  Simply follow the stars to the Youth Program Room.  

If you're taking part in our Summer Reading program, you are already engaging in some summertime learning.  But you can take it to the next level during National Summer Learning Day this Thursday, July 13, 2017.  This is an annual advocacy day led by the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) to elevate awareness of the importance of keeping kids learning, safe and healthy every summer.  For ideas on how you can make the best use of this day, take a look at NSLA's recommendations.

It's the final week in our nonfiction summer reading series.  This week we're learning that humans have already done some big, world-changing things with Information Foundations: Activists & Changemakers.  Maybe their true stories will inspire you!  This post features just ten of the titles available on the full list.   Click here for the printable list complete with call numbers.
