Just an update, Albert Espinosa’s smash-hit Penguin bestseller, The Yellow World is now available for pre-order on Amazon, even though it’s not out until November 1st in London. 

Albert Espinosa wrote about what he dubs as “the yellow world.” Someone would ask, What is the yellow world? The yellow world is a world that’s within everyone’s reach, a world the colour of the sun. It is the name of a way of living, of seeing life, of nourishing yourself with the lessons that you learn from good moments as well as bad ones. It is the world that makes you happy, the world you like living on. The world has no rules; it is made of discoveries.

The New York Public Library system will be CLOSED on Oct. 29 because of Hurricane Sandy (we thought this undated cigarette card from our George Arents Collection was an appropriate image to go with this news). Fines will be waived on all materials due on that day, so please don’t brave the weather to return anything! The materials will be due when we reopen. Stay tuned here and to nypl.org for the latest information on closings. Meanwhile, please prepare yourself for this storm - check out the NYC Office of Emergency Management for info - and while you’re cooped up inside, don’t forget that you can still check out NYPL eBooks from the safety of your home!

Book preview:Code Orangeby Caroline Cooney.

This is my favorite book for reluctant readers.  I hope you enjoy the trailer and may it inspire you to pick up the book.  You may want to pause the video while it buffers, or visit my You Tube library to see my work there. My You Tube channel is Librarianista 11.
