**NEW - YA Special Display - "Deal With It"

You know what they say about when life gives you lemons....

Make lemonade. Haha, real cute, right?

But maybe you're thinking..."BUT LIFE!!! I didn't ask for lemonade!"
You're not alone. Life can get crazy hard sometimes. Cancer. Eating disorders. ADHD. Injuries. Disabilities. Autism. These words are all too familiar. How to handle your life when you feel like saying "Can you just...not?" everyday?

Maybe the books in our YA Special Display "Deal With It" will help. Characters go through tough times themselves, or watch loved ones do the same, some successfully, some not so much. It may not change your situation, but at least you'll know you're in good company. With pretty much the whole world.

Dream a Little Dream...

For Teen Read Week 2014, the theme was Turn Dreams Into Reality @ Your Library. We held a Dream Jar Raffle - teens could write a dream on a little scrap of paper, roll it up, and throw it in our fishbowl for a chance to win some sweet prizes.
Here's what our very own teens had to say about their dreams:

"Go to college in England and win the lottery"
"I dream of becoming a dog trainer"
"My dream is to have an entire room dedicated to my favorite books!"
"My dream is to live life to the fullest"
"My dream is to go to college, be successful, and help those who need it"
"To rescue a Great Dane"
"My dream is to go to Australia"
"I dream of opening a pet rescue center for abandoned animals"
"To finish my novel Flowers Die by graduation"
"To become someone worth remembering"

Disney may think it has a monopoly on fulfilling dreams, but I think these kids are going to give mediocrity a run for its money. Best wishes, and may all your dreams come true.
