From the dusty pages of ancient manuscripts to the crisp allure of modern novels, libraries house a diverse collection that transcends time. ️

But more than just spaces to read books, libraries also offer cozy nooks where children can go on adventures and communities can come together to celebrate the joy of learning and imagination. ✨

And so, in celebration of #ALACC24 in America’s Finest City, one of KidLit’s biggest library lovers is helping kids nationwide see these pillars as magic portals that open their young minds to dream, explore, and create their own narratives with each turn of a page.

Children’s Author, Lisa Katzenberger, joins our John Masiulionis and Little Forrest on Episode #214 of PR From The Heart’s Children’s Books Spotlight Series to share the release of her new children’s book, A Love Letter to My Library (illustrated by New York Times Best-Selling Illustrator, Rob Sayegh Jr., published by Sourcebooks Kids), the importance of libraries in providing safe spaces, intellectual freedom, and access to knowledge for neighborhoods nationwide, the importance of having community libraries in a digital world, how children’s literature serves as a tool for spreading positivity, a look inside the pages of her other 2024 releases, Croc & Gator: Swamp Ranger School (published by Pixel+Ink), I Can Do It Even If I’m Scared: Finding the Brave You (published by Sourcebooks Kids), and It Belongs to the World: Frederick Banting and the Discovery of Insulin (published by Clarion Books), plus much more.
