Check out the hatching!

The chicks are close to hatching! Go to the Youth Services desk and you can hear them cheeping from inside their eggs. 😀 We expect the hatching to start in the next day or so, then we’ll have the chicks in their own pen for a couple of weeks so people can visit them. Come check it out!

New Books!

New books have been sort of trickling out lately because of my recent arm surgery (be careful roller skating, everybody!), but now I’m back and we’re filling up the new book shelves again! Check out these that I just put on display:

Tyler Johnson was here
When Marvin Johnson’s twin brother, Tyler, is shot and killed by a police officer, Marvin must fight injustice to learn the true meaning of freedom.
The place between breaths 
Grace is in a race against time–and in a race for her life–even if she doesn’t realize it yet. Her mother struggled with schizophrenia for years until, one day, she simply disappeared. Can Grace and her scientist father find a cure before Grace is swept away, too?
In a society where a person’s size is directly proportional to his or her wealth, littlepoor Warner, thirteen, and Prayer, fifteen, struggle to improve their lot in a world built against them.
Heart of iron
Found as a child drifting through space with a sentient android called D09, Ana was saved by a fearsome space captain and the grizzled crew she now calls family. But D09 — one of the last remaining illegal Metals — has been glitching, and Ana will stop at nothing to find a way to fix him.
What the night sings
Liberated from Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp in 1945, Gerta has lost her family and everything she knew. Without her Papa, her music, or even her true identity, she must move past the task of surviving and onto living her life.

Did you know we have a nonfiction section just for teens? It’s right under the teen graphic novels. Here are a few new titles available now…

Check it out…

Check out the kids department starting tomorrow, when our chick incubation project will start! We’ll have 24 eggs incubating for around 21 days, until it’s hatching time! The chicks will be with us for a few weeks, then given to a local farm.
