Author Scott Westerfeld Visits Maud Marks Branch

 

Teen author Scott Westerfeld dropped by Maud Marks Branch Tuesday October 12th.  He's doing a national tour promoting Behemoth, the 2nd book in his Leviathan series.  While here he took advantage of the library's wifi access to get a little writing done!  He also took time to pose with Children's librarian Charity James and Branch Librarian Sylvia Powers in front of the branch's display of his books.  Thanks to Blue Willow Bookshop for bringing him by!

Ask Me About My Card

That first library card is a pretty cool thing to own.  Customers who carry our library card this month also get bragging rights in the form of these cool stickers.  Just ask at the Maud Marks Branch.  I really like the "I've been carded" sticker for adults!
