I <3 Book Clubs! I'm always talking about the one I belong too and how much fun we have. And recently I've been getting notes that people are starting to choose my books for their book clubs. Yay! A recent group said they were even setting up a Fauxspresso Night and having drink and treat concoctions to compliment the book. So fun! I'm sending them a package of signed bookmarks and stickers for the club. If you use one of my books in your book club and let me know I'll send you a package too. And if you have skyping abilities (and your meeting is on a night I'm available) we can skype for free too!
WOW. Our brand new library in Bolingbrook, IL (Fountaindale Library) just opened today and I didn't get a chance to get in there until just now. And I was floored! It's BEAUTIFUL! It looks like it could be a huge mall or museum. It's nothing like any library I've ever seen.
It's so big that when you walk in you feel like you're entering an airport.
And there's an info center and cafe.
The interior design is awesome. And there are computers with huge flat screen monitors everywhere you look throughout the three story building.
The Children's area is HUGE. There are toys and tons of games, and a really fun creativity center. I can't wait to bring back the kids.
One of the most AMAZING sections is the teen room called the VORTEX. It's for grades 6 through 12 and it's separate from the rest of the library.
And yay, my books were there!
Bean bags and cool chairs for the teens!
The words are made out of hanging beads!
Even the stairways are cool.
The adult section is AWESOME too! There are tables everywhere with outlets underneath for people to work (wow, Starbucks is so going to lose business...).
