Hooray for Summer Reading finishers! Mom was so proud of her daughter for finishing the Summer Reading program at Gresham Library today, she had her pose with two of our excellent volunteers while holding up her new prize shirt. Great job being a super summer reader! #summerreading

Too many dog-training books to choose from? Heather and Meri save the day with their favorites.

We're wondering who else is hanging around the library today ... so far we've only discovered a Rattata.

"Spring Thaw" by local author Tammy Fish is the featured book from the Library Writers Project for July:

"After the death of her invalid husband, 28-year old Selena answers an ad for a marriage of convenience. The ad is very clear: This is an arrangement only for the sake of the man's young son -- no romance. Selena answers the ad and makes the long journey from her native Illinois to Oregon. She falls in love with the beauty of Oregon, becomes the wife and mother in this Christian household, and makes wonderful new friendships. But the question is, can this marriage last without love?"

Fans of Tracie Peterson and Lauraine Snelling, and those who love a strong rural setting will enjoy this story.

If you find reading different or more enjoyable when you're on vacation, this may be why.
Plus all-time favorites from Quartz reporters.

We were just admiring youth librarian Peter's Summer Reading T-shirt collection. It goes back to 1998! Do you remember all of these? Do you or your kids have a favorite? #summerreading
