The Hate U Give Read-A-Likes
https://www.nypl.org/blog/2018/10/02/hate-u-give

Poetry and Graphic Novels to Read After The Hate U Give …

www.nypl.org

The film adaptation of Angie Thomas’ The Hate U Give is lending new energy to the award-winning, best-selling novel about police violence and Black life in America. A lot of great lists online have already suggested dozens of fiction readalikes, so we thought we’d recommend graphic novels, poetry, and memoirs that address similar themes in a different format.

The Great Give Back: Saturday, October 13th, 2018

Is your library participating in this year’s “Great Give Back?” It’s a “great” opportunity for your teens to earn community service and help the library give back to your community.

From the Great Give Back’s website:

The Great Give Back is a community service initiative created by the Suffolk County Public Library Directors Association and the Suffolk Cooperative Library System.

The mission of The Great Give Back is to provide a day of opportunities for the patrons of Long Island libraries to participate in meaningful, service-oriented experiences. You can find out if your library is hosting a Great Give Back event by checking this list or this interactive map.

You can plan to do a program on October 13th, or set up a week-long event such as a food or coat drive. Thank you to Renee McGrath, Manager of Youth Services at NLS and absolute youth superhero, for spreading the word! She also gave some great ideas, in addition to the ones libraries are already doing, such as:

  • Drop-in crafts for housewarming gifts for Habitat for Humanity groups
  • Book Donations for Little Free Libraries
    Create wreathes (cards, stuffed animals, etc.) for residents in nursing homes
  • Hold a community breakfast for charitable organizations in your community
  • Assemble thanksgiving baskets
  • School supply drive
  • Coat drive (it will be getting cold very soon)
  • Blood drive
  • Check with your local religious organization for ideas for needy families – what do they need the most.
