Books for a Penny and more library joy

When my mood plummets, all I have to do is wrest my glazed eyeballs away from the sinister glow of my computer monitor and the overwhelming scrawl of items on my Must Do Immediately list, and instead focus on the Happy Place that is my wonderful library.

Are you in the market for some gently used children's books? Then don't miss the Children's Literature Department's monthly used book sales, held by the indispensable Friends of Children and Literature on the third Saturday of the month from 10 am to noon in the glorious 2nd floor rotunda of Central Library. The next one is this Saturday, September 18. Special - all nonfiction titles only cost one penny each!

Do you like to hobnob with writers? Then Teen Read Week (Oct 17 - 23) at the LA Public Library is your idea of heaven, because we've got 23 YA and middle-grade authors visiting 14 branches. If the names Mark London Williams, Cecil Castellucci, and Janet Tashjian make your fan antennae quiver, then check out the full list of authors, branches, days, and times.

And check out these cool displays, advertising programs and events past and present at the Children's Literature and Teen'scape Departments of Central Library:

There is lots more going on out at the branches, so check here for a children's or teen library event near you.
