Yes, we wrote about Library Lovers Month last year–and we are still delighting in the seasonal celebration in 2016. If you missed it, in 2015, we recommended:
This year, we would like to suggest a series that is sure to delight–and reaffirm your love of libraries:
Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein
In many ways, this book for the 8-12-year old range is a kind of updated Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Luigi Lemoncello, game-making genius, is constructing a new library. Kyle Keeley is a fan of all kinds of games–especially video games. Imagine his delight when wins a coveted spot as one of twelve kids invited for an overnight sleepover in the library, hosted by Mr. Lemoncello and riddled with lots and lots of games. But come morning, the contestants are surprised to find the doors locked; the only way they can escape is to solve clues and figure out secret puzzles. It takes wit (including puns!), teamwork, and skill to succeed. And what a cool library! And you’ll want to learn about what happens next, in the sequel: Mr. Lemoncello’s Library Olympics, just out last month.
