Check Your Shelf

Children’s Books About (and by!) VP Candidate Kamala Harris

Welcome to Check Your Shelf. Anyone else hitting a wall from working at home? I had been doing fine for awhile, but now it’s like my brain refuses to do any sort of high-level thinking, planning, or executing, which is…irritating, to say the least. We’ll see if this week is any better.

Level Up (Library Reads)

Do you take part in Library Reads, the monthly list of best books selected by librarians only? We’ve made it easy for you to find eligible diverse titles to nominate. Kelly Jensen created a database of upcoming diverse books that anyone can edit, and Nora Rawlins of Early Word is doing the same, as well as including information about series, vendors, and publisher buzz.

Mask up and stay hydrated. See you on Friday!
