Check out this letter from your Teen Services Librarian Renée! This week she is writing about finding your space at home and making sure you have some alone time!
How are we doing? I have been asking around and it seems most people are pretty tired with our current situation. Parents are getting tired of trying to engage their kids and kids are getting tired of being asked to engage. Maybe we could all use a little space.
Finding a little space for yourself can be difficult right now. If you have a large family (me) or if someone has taken over your space (also me), where can you go? This week I discovered the tight corner between my bed and wall. I know it sounds less than ideal, but I discovered first, no one could find me (yessss!). Second, with a stuffy it was quite cozy, and third, I could peacefully ready my ebook.
So, friends, if you just need a break, I suggest you find your own little corner, nook, closet, or shelf, and just have some ME time. It’s National Library Week, so why not bring along an eBook or audiobook and just escape into another world for a bit. Here are some suggestions:
The Stars Never Rise by Rachel Vincent – eBook
Scythe by Neal Shusterman – eBook
Fairest by Gail Carson Levine – audiobook
The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens – audiobook
And hey, when you are ready to rejoin the world, drop me a line and tell me what you are reading or listening to, or what movies or games you are into. I’d love to know!
All the best,
