Just like all businesses for profit or not for profit, libraries also feel the disruption of technological advancement. Because of the nature of what a library is at the heart of its business providing access to information , technological advancement becomes an evolutionary step towards how a library is defined by and how it can provide for its community.
Public libraries, especially, are going beyond the bookshelf to provide opportunities and information to the communities they serve. Fall might be in full swing, but you are probably still hiding inside with your air conditioner even on a cooler day like today.

For the most distinguished American picture book for children: Recognizing an African-American illustrator of outstanding books for children and young adults: For books that embody an artistic expression of the disability experience: All book cover images sourced directly from goodreads.
A young writer listens in breath-held astonishment as his ailing grandfather, whose lifelong reticence has been vanquished by strong painkillers, tells the hidden stories of his past. By deftly infusing each spellbinding page with historical facts entertaining and tragic, effervescent imagination, exceptional emotional intricacies, striking social insights, brilliantly modulated drama, canny wit, and profound and uplifting empathy and compassion, Chabon has created a masterful and resounding novel of the dark and blazing forces that forged our tumultuous, confounding, and precious world.
With homage to dance as a unifying force, arresting observations, exceptionally diverse and magnetizing characters, and lashing satire, Swing Time is an acidly funny, fluently global, and head-spinning novel about the quest for meaning, exaltation, and love. In this magnetizing and wrenching saga, Whitehead tells the story of smart and resilient Cora, a young third-generation slave on a Georgia cotton plantation. Certain that the horror will only get worse, she flees with a young man who knows how to reach the Underground Railroad.
Each stop Cora makes along the Underground Railroad reveals another shocking and malignant symptom of a country riven by catastrophic conflicts, a poisonous moral crisis, and diabolical violence. Portrait of a Friendship: Eleanor Roosevelt, born to privilege, prosperity, and power, first crossed paths with Pauli Murray, the granddaughter of a slave struggling against racism and poverty, in when the First Lady visited an upstate New York facility for unemployed women.
Desmond does a marvelous job exposing the harrowing stories of people who find themselves in bad situations, shining a light on how eviction sets people up to fail. He also makes the case that eviction disproportionately affects women and, worse, their children. This is essential reading for anyone interested in social justice, poverty, and feminist issues, but its narrative nonfiction style will also draw general readers—and will hopefully spark national discussion.
Patrick Phillips Blood at the Root: A Racial Cleansing in America W. As current political discourse addresses controversial notions regarding immigrants and race relationships, the events Phillips describes in this harrowing chronicle of racial cleansing in Forsyth County, Georgia, in the early twentieth century feels eerily contemporary and all-too relevant.

38th Annual Library Fair Web Page
Sadly, no one on staff knew about it. And we did not know about it even after it was removed until about two years ago when a young letterboxer came in search of that little stamp and this is how we learned about letterboxing, a unique hobby in which people solve riddles and follow clues to collect the stamped image of custom and handmade rubber stamps.
In an effort to get more active over the years more outdoor oriented hobbies are popping up everywhere from geocaching to Pokemon Go. Letterboxing not only incorporates travel, the outdoors, and critical thinking but also art. Looking for something new to try? Need a creative outlet? Thanksgiving is right around the corner.

I know how to my say my alphabet backward and forward. Come to the Lake Sinclair Library and I'll demonstrate for you. Saying my alphabet backward is as automatic as anything else I can do. But what is really more amazing is not that I can say my alphabet backward but how I learned.
The year was The only way to access nick. The site took approximately 20 minutes to load and while waiting it recommended that I learn my alphabet backward then proceeded to show me a graphic of the alphabet backward. So I did just that, instead of walking away for the time it took to load the website that day, I took the time to learn my alphabet backward.
Now fast forward to today, , dial-up is in the past, we do not even take a second thought about access. We access what we want, where we want, and when we want it. We stream endlessly with little to no lag.

Do you remember lag? The experience of the slowdown. In gaming, in streaming, in web surfing, etc. That psychologically painful wait for what we now experience as instant gratification was once not so instant. We trade in our phones every couple of years to keep our hardware up to speed with our software.
We buy into subscription services rather than physical software packages so we can have the practically instantaneous live updates. But what happens if it ends even temporarily if in the slow down begins. In , there was this great thing that occurred that you may have heard about in the news again recently being challenged again , Net Neutrality. All internet traffic at least in the United States would be treated equally and redefined broadband access as a public utility shaping our internet experiences as we know them.
We have everything at our fingertips. But what happens when this Net Neutrality is repealed? What would replace it? What will access look like? Would we notice the changes?

Will we have to pay more for Netflix? Will we have to subscribe to more services to receive the same features and online experiences of which we have become acclimated? Will we even notice a difference? How will this affect YouTube? Will we still be able to afford internet access or the ability to access information? December 14, , will be another defining moment in Internet history. The potential end to Net Neutrality. How we access and experience the online will not necessarily be forever changed but it will be changed for the time being if the FCC overrules the current policies.
While those making these changes believe it will be for the better it could be for the worse. The battle for the internet is not new and it is not necessarily about ensuring equal access for everyone, it's about the Benjamins, the money, the politics, and just vying for power and control over the people. I agree there are things in the online realm that ethically should not be accessed but that should be for the individual person to decide but that's my personal opinion.
I want my internet, unfiltered and uninterrupted. I want to decide how to control my online experience and my own access to information. Learn More About Net Neutrality. Regardless of the outcome this December, libraries continue to work to make access to information available to all. Libraries work to protect your intellectual freedoms.
