Summer Reading Club Prizes

Summer Reading is half-way over! That means that you only have another month to read as many books as you can. If your motivation to read is waning, look below to see the awesome prizes you could win if you keep logging those books and entering prize tickets.












Writer’s Cafe @ Greenfield Today

Yes, you too can drink coffee & make stuff up today at HCPL from 4-6pm! Enjoy a relaxing space to take your novel to the next level. Writing prompts will be available if you get stuck.

Start channeling those creative threads, and I’ll see you at 4!




Today celebrates my favorite caffeinated beverage: National Coffee Day! You know what goes perfectly with coffee? – BOOKS! …



Come visit HCPL today and pick up a new favorite or an old friend to enjoy with your coffee. SO many good choices!


Feel free to come to me for book suggestions to pair with your lattes, fraps, caps, or straight up black coffees (how I drink mine!). Also feel free to talk coffee with me – I LOVE talking coffee (librarian/former barista).

ps: If you bring coffee in, bring a lid – Not like my mug which normally resides on my desk. 🙂

Your happily caffeinated teen librarian,

We’re Celebrating National Poetry Month with Coffee!

Yes, nothing is more typical than a poet hanging out in a cafe – So we’re celebrating National Poetry Month by giving you YA Cafe! Come in and create your favorite cafe beverages with the help of me, your former-barista-now-Teen Librarian. You can make lattes, caramel macchiatos, chai teas, etc. – Or make up your own concoction!

After you make your drinks we’ll have games set out and pencils for drawing or writing. Bring in a book to read or friends to chat with while you relax. I’m also going to give you the opportunity to create poems using book spines like this:


(Jaws theme anyone?!)

See you at the cafe!
