There’s no way to resist creating a spine poem or two, with all of these books around. In honor of National Poetry Month, will you share a spine poem with us?

Available nowhere else in Oregon, the reprints in North Portland Library’s Fisk University Collection were written by and about African Americans between 1800 and 1930. Michael Powell of Powell’s Books donated this 385-volume collection.

Read a title from this collection and share it at a special April 22 book group:

We loved competing with +Seattle Public Library in the first #bookmatch in honor of the +Portland Timbers vs. The Sounders game. We prevailed, but the real winners were the over 400 readers from both systems who got suggestions for what to read next!
Thanks, Seattle. Good game!

In anticipation of the Timbers win against the Sounders, a panel of awesomeness will be on Twitter today. Let's beat Seattle Public Library. Starting at 4:30, tweet a book title @MultCoLib and tag it with #PDXreads. We'll send a title back to score. When the final whistle blows at 6 pm, we'll tally the tweets for the win. http://bit.ly/1fvNMbc

Help us spread the word:

If your child will be 5 years old by September 1, register him or her for kindergarten by June 1, before school offices close for the summer. Call 2-1-1 or email children@211info.org to find your school.

Hey MCL fans - are you game? There's a Timbers vs. Sounders match on Saturday, and we need you at a #nerdpeprally!

On Thursday, April 3, from 4:30-6 p.m., we'll be on Twitter giving book recommendations – and so will Seattle Public Library. Each suggestion we make counts as a goal; the library that helps the most readers in our 90-minute #bookmatch wins.

Help us beat our northern neighbors: Starting at 4:30 on Thursday, tweet us @MultCoLib with a book you like, and we'll tweet you one back to score! Be sure to use the tag #PDXreads.

So it’s #PDXreads vs. #SEAreads in the #bookmatch of the year. (And if you have a suggestion for a Multnomah County reader, feel free to recommend - all recommendations count as goals.) Go team!
