One of HPLD's employees, Rick Medrano, has been honored as a recipient of the Rising Stars award from the Association of Bookmobile and Outreach Services! "Rick has a passion for serving and this is evident in his commitment to serve the most vulnerable patrons: homeless and transitional patrons. He used his leadership skills to re-envision an existing stop at the homeless shelter and added a stop at an apartment building that helps homeless patrons’ transition into apartment living. Rick’s welcoming attitude and approachability has increased services to the most vulnerable, inviting them to feel a sense of belonging to the library. Rick also assists at the Inter-Community Corrections Services (ICCS) to ensure that the library is providing services to newly released patrons into the community. He assists them in library card sign up and materials checkout." Congratulations, and thanks to Rick! Read more here: https://www.mylibrary.us/…/hpld-employee-rick-medrano-one-…/

Today's title, Nosotros los animales / We the Animals by Justin Torres. The story of 3 young brothers and their violent love will speak to anyone raised with siblings:
“We wanted more. We knocked the butt ends of our forks against the table, tapped our spoons against our empty bowls; we were hungry. We wanted more volume, more riots. We turned up the knob on the TV until our ears ached with the shouts of angry men. We wanted more music on the radio; we wanted beats; we wanted rock. We wanted muscles on our skinny arms. We had bird bones, hollow and light, and we wanted more density, more weight. We were six snatching hands, six stomping feet; we were brothers, boys, three little kings locked in a feud for more.”
