Jacqueline Woodson is the current National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, and her just published middle grade novel, Harbor Me, is a moving tribute to the healing that can occur when children share their stories. Woodson's writing celebrates the importance of compassion, understanding, security, and freedom.
This year's Library Open House for Park faculty and staff asked an essential question: What makes a library great? Everyone was challenged to find one word to capture a positive childhood library experience. The results are an inspiration and an aspiration for the library's own program.
