For the little ones, the first week of school can be rough. Once they know the routine, the anxiety of new experiences will turn familiar, and all will be well.

Out of Character

"He made mistakes, true. He was disliked. He was disrespected. Unfairly judged. Not telling his side, his story. He took the hate, the judgement, kept his word. Once his story was known, it was too late. Eternity took the chance of friendship, which could have been forged through forgiveness and understanding. But through it all, he loved. Always."

This is why Severus Snape is one of the library director's favorite characters from the Harry Potter series. "Knowing the end of the story made me want to go back and look at him in a different light. In real life, people do things out of character for reasons unknown even to themselves. However, we don't get Hermione's time turner, only careful reflection and the hope that wrongs can be righted."

September 6th is Read a Book day. The Harry Potter series celebrated it's 21st year since the publishing of the first of seven books on June 26th. The series took ten years to complete and is still a favorite with many.

Laughter is the best medicine

Why did the mushroom go to the party?
