Woodstock Library will be closed October 3-16 while we paint, install new carpet, and create a more open and flexible space to better serve you. The book drop will be closed, too. Thank you for your patience!

Brooklynn, who just started kindergarten, writes the name of her favorite librarian — Violeta — in the sand. Violeta works at Troutdale Library, and the fact that the letters got a little mixed up and cut off didn't stop her heart from melting when she saw the photo. "You have really made a difference in my little kiddos' lives and have played a big part in their continued love of reading," says Brooklynn's mom.

What will life be like and how will people survive in a world transformed by climate change?

In this month's Library Writers Project feature, J. Underwood provides us with possible answers in nine sobering and compelling stories, with scenarios ranging from a new European ice age to the western United States turned desert.

Check out "The Bell Lap" today!

"The Library of America usually restricts itself to Melville, Twain, Hawthorne and the other distinguished dead. But a handful of times it has been so sure of a novelist’s importance that its austere black volumes started appearing while the writer was still alive. ... Ursula K. Le Guin is now on this very shortlist."
The 86-year-old author will become one of the few living writers recognized by the Library of America, and she did it on her terms.

How can we end homelessness here in Multnomah County? A panel of advocates will discuss solutions Wednesday, Sept. 21, 6 pm at Central Library. Continue the conversation in January during Everybody Reads 2017, when we'll examine the toll of evictions and rising housing costs through the lens of Matthew Desmond’s “Evicted.” http://bit.ly/2ckejgt

We asked him to share some of his favorite reading and viewing picks with us.

It's not too late to get the current issue of Street Roots and read about the important work of the library's outreach coordinator to jails, Carol Cook.
