Living Room Library

Your weekly virtual visit to the Small Library!

Week of 4/13/2020

Welcome to the Living Room Library! I am your living room librarian, Ms. Sylvia. Each week I will post a short video of a book I recommend with some other suggested books by that author or with a similar theme, a video book trailer from one of the 2020 Lone Star books, and a video book trailer from a 2020 Maverick graphic novel. Click on the book cover to view the book trailers for each title.

Contact me via email (you will find my contact info at the bottom of the Smore.) Can't find what your're looking for? You can request book (use the button below)to be added to Sora. Happy reading!

This is not a "class" but I will post all of the Living Room Library Smores there along with discussions about what you're reading and what you would recommend. This way you will get notifications when there is new content on the Library Blend page.

This week's Smore features mystery and adventure books.
