The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25. Help is here. https://www.thetrevorproject.org/get-help-now/

Research demonstrates that LGBTQ youth who do not have access to LGBTQ-affirming community environments are at higher risk for negative outcomes, including high school dropout, homelessness, negative health symptoms, increased drug and alcohol use and suicide. What are some ways you can be LGBTQ affirming?

Have you been wondering what the library staff have been doing these past 3 months? 🤔 Well we've been busy sprucing up the library, helping patrons from a distance and working on many projects, including this large one to improve our children's area! 😃🥳🤗 At the end of last year we were awarded funds from The Maximizing Learning Spaces project, which is a collaboration between the California State Library and the Southern California Library Cooperative, to create a mobile and flexible space for school age children. Our Friends of the Library also generously provided funds to help with this project, and additional improvements to the space for our youngest learners. 😁🤗

We have been missing all of our patrons and we can't wait to invite you back in! Not only will the children's area have a fresh look, but our new furniture will also help us maintain physical distance while providing a comfortable space for school age children. We hope to see you soon! 😃

Love dragons? Intrigued by illusions? Check out this craft that Maria developed. Magically transform your stoic dragon outline into a colorful beast. You don't have to draw a dragon - use your imagination, and transform a design of your own. Template for the magic sliding card is in the comments below. Happy crafting!
