Nick's Picks on WBAA
Nick Schenkel's Book Reviews on WBAA
LIT UP: One reporter, three schools, twenty books that can change lives
David Denby, acclaimed writer for The New Yorker, sat in classrooms for an entire academic year to see if literature was really dead with the Millennial youth. He read the books and poems that were assigned, and witnessed the students discuss each piece. What he discovered was that the passion for reading still can be ignited - with the help of great teachers and great literature. West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel has a review.
Little Free Libraries and Book Drops
CULTIVATING A COMMUNITY OF READERS
The West Lafayette Public Library is proud to announce the opening of a neighborhood Little Free Library and a walk-up library book return box in both Lommel Park and Lincoln Park (seen in the photo above) in West Lafayette.
Working with the West Lafayette Parks and Recreation Department, with funding from North Central Health Services (NCHS), the West Lafayette Library is expanding the network of library service points in West Lafayette.
The book drops and the little free libraries are now available for use in both parks. Please use and enjoy these new West Lafayette Library services!
