    Jessica, that video was great! Please also remember that Divergent is part of a triology – the next two books are Insurgent and Allegiant. Hope you enjoy those as well as you enjoyed Divergent!

    Hi Julie, I’m glad you were able to post some book trailers. They are a fun way to learn about new books.

    Joy, I’m glad you and your family are enjoying our Summer Reading program. Charlotte’s Web was also one of my favorites.

  25. Fiona Moord Says:

    This summer I wanted to spend time doing fun activities, so I signed up for the summer reading club with KDL. It was very fun because I got to keep track of what I read and what other people read to me. I really love reading and I feel like you need to read while you’re out of school because your teacher’s tell you do do that. I got to work up to 30 activities and it was really fun. When I turned in my log I got to pick out a free book: Charlotte’s Web!

  26. Amy Says:

    We are on our way to the Wyoming Branch today to pick up a book on hold. My daughter loves the James Patterson books for teens. I of course have requested too many to count 🙂

  27. Kristin - Staff KDL Says:

    James Patterson’s latest teen mystery, Confessions of a Murder Suspect, was a fast, exciting read, and the first in his new “Confessions” series. I loved it!

  28. Morgan L. Says:

    I requested alot of Barefoot books. They are so good. My favorite one is the
    one called The Barefoot Book of Knights. I got alot of them.

  29. Lorelei L. Says:

    I did the Ruff Readers program this summer. I got to read to the dogs five times. It was fun!
