Meet Your Next Heroes

Last week the children at the Northwest Branch Library got together and found their alter egos at Super Hero Camp. A great time was had by all. They designed their own costumes and found themselves in the middle of some serous training. Check it out.

Shining a Light on the Library

Customers Shoping for BooksThis past Saturday the Friends of the Northwest Library held a book sale. The money made from book sales goes directly towards supporting the library. With those funds the community is able to enjoy additional materials for checkout or attend special programs. So you can imagine how worried everyone was to learn the building lost power the day of the sale!

Determined to carry on, the Friends held the sale, and the people came. Armed with phones and flashlights, shoppers searched for those special titles. In the end the Friends ended up with one of its most successful book sales in years. It just goes to show that you can't keep a book lover or library supporter down.

Check out the other pictures here.
