If they come in the morning.. by Angela Davis 🇺🇸 (First Edition, First Printing, Orbach & Chambers, 1971. Special Collections): The trial of Angela Davis is remembered as one of America's most historic political trials, and no one can tell the story better than Davis herself. Opening with a letter from James Baldwin to Davis, and including contributions from numerous radicals and commentators such as Black Panthers George Jackson, Huey P. Newton, Bobby Seale and Ericka Huggins, this book is not only an account of Davis's incarceration and the struggles surrounding it, but also perhaps the most comprehensive and thorough analysis of the prison system of the United States and the figure embodied in Davis's arrest and imprisonment - the political prisoner. Since the book was written, the carceral system in the US has grown from strength to strength, with more of its black population behind bars than ever before. The scathing analysis of the role of prison and the policing of black populations offered by Davis and her comrades in this astonishing volume remains as relevant today as the day it was published. #libreriagh #literaturehouseghana #library #literarysalon #accra #westlegon #ghana #books #bookstagram #lovelibraries #librariesofinstagram #librariestransform #angeladavis #iftheycomeinthemorning #blackpantherparty #blackactivist #blackfeminism #intersectionalfeminism #intersectionality #africanamericanwriters #africanamericanwomen #jamesbaldwin #georgejackson #hueypnewton #bobbyseale #erickahuggins #blackpower #allpowertothepeople #blacklivesmatter

Finally got to reading some of my book stash! Inspired by real events the author portrays a young survivor, his guilt, his grief and his growth into manhood which will be forever in the shade of his traumatic experience and tragic loss of his family. This book was hard to put down, it was emotionally challenging and deeply moving. The observations on board the plane are very descriptive, each hoping for a new life a better opportunity ultimately building to a tragic accident and loss of life. As a librarian I've had the opportunity to witness popular books with many not living up to expectations. This one does deserve it's popularity and will be a contemporary classic. @galway_city_library #takeacloserlook #lovelibraries

There are few things that will stop librarians from serving their community.⁣ ⁣ Just ask Mildred Post Rippey, seen here working by oil lamp (no 💡, no problem!).⁣ ⁣ In addition to serving as the Palisades’ librarian from 1948-1983, Rippey was an accomplished poet. ⁣ ⁣ Here’s an except from our favorite poem of hers, “Our Library” 📚:⁣ ⁣ 𝘛𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘪𝘴 𝘢 𝘧𝘢𝘤𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘬𝘯𝘰𝘸.⁣ 𝘠𝘰𝘶 𝘥𝘰𝘯’𝘵 𝘯𝘦𝘦𝘥 𝘮𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘭 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘴𝘰.⁣ 𝘐 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘭𝘪𝘣𝘳𝘢𝘳𝘺 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘮𝘺 𝘩𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘵.⁣ 𝘐 𝘢𝘭𝘸𝘢𝘺𝘴 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦, 𝘳𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘳𝘵,⁣ 𝘈𝘯𝘥 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘦𝘢𝘤𝘩 𝘱𝘢𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘺𝘦𝘢𝘳, 𝘐’𝘷𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥⁣ 𝘐’𝘮 𝘨𝘭𝘢𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘐 𝘢𝘮 𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘢𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥⁣ 𝘛𝘰 𝘴𝘦𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥𝘳𝘦𝘯 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘨𝘰,⁣ 𝘈𝘯𝘥 𝘸𝘢𝘵𝘤𝘩 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮 𝘮𝘶𝘭𝘵𝘪𝘱𝘭𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘨𝘳𝘰𝘸.⁣ 𝘛𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘵 𝘣𝘦𝘴𝘵 𝘩𝘰𝘱𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘩,⁣ 𝘐’𝘮 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘸𝘦 𝘢𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘩,⁣ 𝘈𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘳𝘺 𝘵𝘰 𝘥𝘰 𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘺 𝘣𝘦𝘴𝘵⁣ 𝘛𝘰 𝘩𝘦𝘭𝘱 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮 𝘮𝘦𝘦𝘵 𝘦𝘢𝘤𝘩 𝘵𝘳𝘪𝘢𝘭 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘦𝘴𝘵.⁣ 𝘞𝘦 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘯𝘰t 𝘺𝘦𝘵 𝘢𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘥 𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘧𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯,⁣ 𝘉𝘶𝘵 𝘸𝘦’𝘳𝘦 𝘩𝘦𝘢𝘥𝘦𝘥 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘳𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘥𝘪𝘳𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯.⁣ ⁣ #palisadesfreelibrary #throwbackthursday #tbt #librarians #poetry #nationalpoetrymonth #lovelibraries #loveyourlibrary #palisadesny #libraries #librariesofinstagram #books #poems #writers

Its a fact - I. Love. Libraries. Ever since I was young, a library has always held a special place in my heart. I love the feeling you get when you walk through the doors and enter the world of books and language. I've been lucky enough to work in a library and see it from the other side (its just as exciting!). There is a Matilda inside of me for sure, who just loves to explore a library and the fact you can take books home for FREE, well its all the more reason for libraries to live long and prosper, in my eyes. Top tip - from a travel perspective, I use libraries to get the latest travel guides on various places I plan to visit. I research which ones are most recently out, and scour the online catalogues of my local libraries for them. Sometimes I take these guides on my travels but more often than not, I make.my own personal travel guide - but more on that in future posts 😉 Luckily my local libraries are good enough to have up to date stock in - long may this continue! 👏👍❤📚 TTx #libraries #library #matilda #lovelibraries #traveltips #travelinspo #research

Bessie Head: Thunder Behind Her Ears: Her Life and Writing by Gillian Stead Eilersen 🇿🇦: This biography details the life of Bessie Head - a life which echoes so many of the aspects of the distressing history of South Africa in the last half century. She was born in an asylum to a mother who was considered mad because her father was black. Despite the disadvantages of being both a person of mixed race and a woman, she made her way in South Africa as a journalist. Her exile in rural Botswana was in marked contrast to the intensely urban backgrounds of most other South African writers. Her fierce determination to take root was reflected in her first novel Where Rain Clouds Gather. But she was kept a refugee for 15 years before she was granted citizenship of Botswana. Her most frightening novel, A Question of Power vividly captures the shifting dislocations of schizophrenia. #libreriagh #literaturehouseghana #library #literarysalon #accra #westlegon #ghana #pamahouse #lovebookslovelibreria #books #bookstagram #lovelibraries #loveafricanlibraries #librariesofinstagram #librariestransform #bessiehead #thunderbehindherears #gilliansteadeilersen #africanwriters #southafricanwriters #southafrica #botswana #botswanawriters #serowe #whenraincloudsgather #aquestionofpower #biography

“Miss Stella Thomas has made history by being the first lady barrister in West Africa. We glow with pride and pleasure of the achievements of men, but when a woman makes a bold bid for the laurels of men and succeed then we feel indeed that the day is dawning when the women of Africa will take their rightful place by the side of the men. Today African women should not be satisfied with the intellectual crumbs dolled out to us, but we should strive to be on the same plane as our men if we want to carve out a niche for the women of Africa. Many of us who were present at the Supreme Court last month and listened to the clear accents of Miss Thomas must have experienced a peculiar thrill. The impression she created was profound and I have no doubt with hard work she will she will reflect glory on the women of Africa.” ***’Women Pioneers’ by Mabel Dove writing as Ebun Alakija in the Nigerian Daily Times, 24 February 1936 taken from Selected Writings of a Pioneer West African Feminist: Mabel Dove 🇬🇭. #libreriagh #literaturehouseghana #library #literarysalon #accra #westlegon #ghana #pamahouse #lovebookslovelibreria #books #bookstagram #lovelibraries #loveafricanlibraries #librariesofinstagram #librariestransform #mabeldove #mabeldovedanquah #pioneerwestafricanfeminist #trenteditions #stephanienewell #audreygadzekpo #ghanaianwriters #ghanaianfeminist #africanfeminism #africanwriters #ghanahistory #westafrica #stellathomas

Selected Writings of a Pioneer West African Feminist by Mabel Dove 🇬🇭 (Edited by Stephanie Newell 🇺🇸 and Audrey Gadzekpo 🇬🇭): This book brings together for the first time an extensive selection of Mabel Dove's journalistic and creative writing - work originally published in West African newspapers between 1931 and 1966. Mabel Dove (1905-1984) was one of the few female writers - and one of the first feminist thinkers - to produce newspaper articles on a regular basis in Ghana. Popular with male and female readers alike, her immense journalistic output covered issues such as women's rights and women's writing in the colonial period, education, culture and politics in West Africa. Stretching from the 'stormy 1930s' to the dramatic coup which unseated Nkrumah in 1966, the articles included here track a major period of Ghanaian women's literature. #libreriagh #literaturehouseghana #library #literarysalon #accra #westlegon #ghana #pamahouse #lovebookslovelibreria #books #bookstagram #lovelibraries #loveafricanlibraries #librariesofinstagram #librariestransform #mabeldove #mabeldovedanquah #pioneerwestafricanfeminist #trenteditions #stephanienewell #audreygadzekpo #ghanaianwriters #ghanaianfeminist #africanfeminism #africanwriters #ghanahistory #westafrica

Learn more about the Sierra Leonean writer, Yema Lucilda Hunter 🇸🇱, who is the author of Gladys Casely-Hayford’s biography: Lucilda Hunter was born and grew up in Freetown, Sierra Leone.  She had her secondary education at the Annie Walsh Memorial School in Freetown, and finished her studies in the United Kingdom, qualifying as a graduate librarian. She later specialised  in medical librarianship and information for health workers, obtaining an MPhil in that subject area from Loughborough University in the United Kingdom . For many years she was employed by the Ministry of Health as the librarian at the Connaught Hospital in Freetown before leaving to head the Library and Health Information Services at the Regional Office for Africa of the World Health Organization in Congo, Brazzaville. She took early retirement in 1999 and that same year was made a Fellow of the British Library Association, since renamed: The Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals. Writing as Yema Lucilda Hunter, she is the author of four novels relating to Sierra Leone, and Freetown in particular: Road to Freedom ( African Universities Press, Ibadan, Nigeria), Bittersweet (Macmillan, UK), Redemption Song (SLWS, 2006), and Joy Came in the Morning (SLWS, 2013). Lucilda Hunter is also the author of a self-published biography - An African Treasure: In Search of Gladys Casely-Hayford, as a result of which she was invited to write the article on Gladys Casely-Hayford which appears in the Dictionary of African Biography (Oxford University Press).

In New Hampshire Kingston Community Library has a Fitness Forest: A small trail behind the library where they have posted the story Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do You See? written by Bill Martin, Jr. and illustrated by Eric Carle along with exercise suggestions. What a great way to increase access to nature and exercise during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Remember to practice proper social distancing! Here is more information on the Fitness Forest, supplied by the library: "We felt that with the amount of time the children are spending on computers doing school work at the moment, it was important to encourage and inspire children to keep moving and get out into the fresh air! We tried to combine a number of activities to incorporate on our trail so that families could spend a good amount of time together outside, while enjoying fun things to do. Our trail isn't too long, so it's perfect for little legs to walk around (less than half a mile), and it's wide enough to push a stroller too! Along the way, we hung pages of a book for families to read. On these pages are additional snippets of information and fun facts for children to learn. On the trees in between the story pages, we added exercise cards for children to complete, such as 'do 25 jumping jacks' or 'hop on one leg', hoping that would encourage more movement and fun along the way. Another activity we left at the trail entrance were scavenger hunt pages and a pot of new pencils for families to use and then take home once they complete the hunt. We left two versions, one for younger children and one for older children, this way we hope the whole family would be able to find some joy in our trail!" #letsmoveinlibraries @kingstonlibrary_nh @newenglandlib @activeforlifeca #StoryWalk @ala_pla @library_journal #covid19 #socialdistancewalk #bookstagram libraryprogram #programminglibrarian #librarypartner #librarylife #healthylibrary #librariesofinstagram #librariansofinstagram #adultlibraryprograms #lifelonglearning #getmoving #lovelibraries #librariestransform #librariesrock #libs4health #health #librarygram #libraryfun #libraryevents #librariesaremorethanbook #childrensbooks #childrenslibrarian #fitness

An African Treasure: In Search of Gladys Casely-Hayford, 1904-1950 by Yema Lucilda Hunter 🇸🇱 (Sierra Leone Writers Series: SLWS): Gladys May Casely-Hayford was a Gold Coast-born Sierra Leonean poet, musician, dramatist, painter and storyteller, and the daughter of Adelaide Casely-Hayford. She was the cultural luminary of her day, becoming a well-known figure in the Harlem Renaissance. After completing her education in the Gold Coast (Ghana) and Wales, she danced with a Berlin jazz band, and returning to Africa taught at her mother's Girls' Vocational School in Freetown. Her first poems were published in The Atlantic Monthly and The Philadelphia Tribune and her work has been widely anthologised. Her poetry is deeply rooted in Africa and she used her self-expression to make a change in the world through her writing, which was controversial at the time. Many of her poems emphasise women's freedom and pride and others reflected her life. Her place in the cultural history of Sierra Leone and even of Ghana seems to have been lost, however, hence this book which is an attempt to remedy that situation and tell her life story. #libreriagh #literaturehouseghana #library #literarysalon #accra #westlegon #ghana #books #bookstagram #lovelibraries #loveafricanlibraries #librariesofinstagram #librariestransform #yemalucildahunter #gladyscaselyhayford #anafricantreasure #insearchofgladyscaselyhayford #sierraleoneanwriters #africanwriters #africanpoets #harlemrenaissance #adelaidecaselyhayford #jecaselyhayford #goldcoast #sierraleone #sierraleoneanwritersseries

Oh no! Togepi got into the body paint while we were painting its 3D printed shell. It seems to have a mischievous nature. Come to think of it, we haven't seen Togepi all day since. #ilmakerspaces #qldlibraries #libraries #makerspace #makerspacelife #librariesofinstagram #instalibrary #ipswichlibraries #ipswich #librarylife #library #librarymakerspace #discoveripswich #lovelibraries #librariesrock #makersgonnamake @ #makers #bookachampion #learn #imagemanipulation
