Hello everyone,

I am out the rest of this week so am sending this shoutout early! This week's shoutout goes to Forest Grove, who will be participating in NASA@ My Library<https://www.ala.org/news/member-news/2021/09/60-libraries-selected-nasa-my-library-partners?utm_source=alanews&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=09142021&utm_content=membernews> this coming year, what a great opportunity for Forest Grove families!

I hope to see some of you virtually at the Youth Services Summit<https://www.csdola.org/youth-services-summit.html> in a couple weekends.

Also, I wanted to make sure and send an early save the date for the Latinx Kidlit Book Festival<https://www.latinxkidlitbookfestival.com/festival-schedule-2021> on December 9th and 10th - Last year it was on the weekend, but this year it's during the week so more schools can participate. This is a virtual celebration of Latinx KidLit authors, illustrators, and books for all students, educators, and book lovers everywhere. There will be two full days of panels, craft sessions, and illustrator draw-offs with your favorite Latinx authors and illustrators of picture books, middle grade, young adult, graphic novels, comics, and poetry. The sessions are geared towards all schools, educators, students, and book lovers, not just those identifying as Latinx. Everyone is welcome!

This may be a great option to share with your schools, and/or to share with your communities, too.  A colleague in Connecticut shared social media graphics and posters that can be used anywhere you'd like, see below.

Have a great rest of your week!
