Every child a reader


A Crocker Farm 2nd grade class enjoying a tour of the Jones, 
snacks, books to keep and, best of all, 
storytime.

Another program funded by the Friends. 
(Which really means you. Thanks, guys.)

Only one more week


of Women's History Month. How will you round it out? Perhaps a gander at the Amelia Bloomer Project? The good folks over there have been compiling feminist literature for readers from birth to age 18. (But we suspect even people over 18 might enjoy it, too.)


"Feminism is not only a noun, but a call to action." And hey, as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has noted, "We should all be feminists."

Visualizing Gender Imbalance


An independent bookstore in a Cleveland suburb is helping us see more clearly the gender gap in literature. Loganberry Books wanted to find a new, interesting way to honor Women's History Month.

Click here to see a few more photos of the bookstore's shelves. Some are entirely turned around. Some Friends are off to take a look at our own bookshelves now.
