Book Review: "The Naturals All In" by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

"The Naturals All" is about a team of teenage crime solvers. They are involved in a special program for the F.B.I and use their unique abilities to help solve cases. In this book they are trying to solve a case about who is killing people in the open and writing a series of numbers on the victims’ wrists.

Book review: Sports Illustrated

Sports Illustrated is my favorite magazine to read. It gives you information on all sports, athletes and games. I like reading all of the articles. It has things that you can do the in the magazine, like matching games, find the missing detail and quizzes. I also like the free posters inside the magazine to take out and keep. My favorite thing in the magazine is EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One of my favorite athletes is Aaron Rodgers. He plays for the Green Bay Packers and is a really good athlete. I like that he helps lots of charities and people. I look forward to reading Sports Illustrated and Sports Illustrated Teen every month at the library. Cole (10) That'

Books, Outreach and Partnerships

Here's a look into one of the places our books go and how our outreach works. We work with many organizations, nonprofits, schools and social workers. Our aim is to help provide books and literacy activities to them. Madison Reading Project works with each group to see what the best fit is for their group and children. By finding out which each group specifically needs we can pull the appropriate type of books. That could be genre, reading level, chapter books, gender, topics or even specific books groups would like to have in their libraries to share with kids. Last week we partnered with YWCA Madison to help update and bring more books and literacy to their center. 325 books were donated
