I start working on the summer reading list in January.  The list usually includes titles and locations within the library.  This year I had decided to also create a few book cover lists that highlighted various parts of the long list.  I had completed most of the title list when the quarantine set in and everything about summer reading changed.  So here's what we have instead!

I used my work-at-home time to learn how to use a service called LibraryAware.  It allowed me to create some very fancy looking book cover reading lists.  Every title is available in our downloadable collections, either via Libby or Hoopla.  Since each list can only include a small number of books, I made a lot of lists.  I made 45 of them.  I told you it was a lot!  We'll be featuring them in a variety of ways all summer long, but I'm also going to assemble them all together in this blog post.  I hope you find many books you want to read!  I know I did!

Maybe you aren't satisfied with just doing summer reading.  Maybe you want to try your hand at summer writing, too!  Here are some resources to help you get your story started.

Both my mom and sister are experts at the art of crochet.  This means I have easy access to a lot of yarn.  A LOT.  Which is great because there are so many things you can do with a bit of string and imagination.

May 26, 2020 is National Paper Airplane Day!  Celebrate the simple aeronautical toy in the best possible way.  Fold some paper, and let it fly!

Which is cause for celebration every year.  But this year?  I don't think the students, teachers, or parents have EVER been so excited.  I'm sure you already have a long list of things you want to do at this momumental moment, but here are a few more ideas.

Teen Volunteers

March 31, 2020
During this time of staying safe and distancing from one another the Hoover Public Library will not be accepting applications for teen volunteers.  We hope to bring back this wonderful program in the future.  As circumstances change and as we make plans for the future, we will update this page with new information as it is forthcoming.

We look forward to seeing you again and wish for the good health of all our citizens.
