Back in 2020, a librarian in Walker, MN, reached out to various authors and asked us to share what libraries mean to us. My essay just appeared last month. You can click on the image below to read it in .pdf form. Thank you, librarians of all kinds, for all you do to create safe havens for kids to explore in and escape to. You make a huge difference!
[My Classroom Connections posts share a way to connect one of my books or poems to a classroom topic–often something timely that you might be covering in the next month or so. Please share this post if you have educator friends who might be interested–thanks!]
Thanks for sharing, Laura! And yes, hooray for libraries and librarians everywhere!
