Every month, librarians from Denver Public Library branches get together to talk about new books for school-aged kids. Here are some titles we are excited about as school begins.
 

Books for younger readers:

Gator on the Loose! by Sue Stauffacher is the first book in the new "Animal Rescue Team" series.  The three Carter kids help their parents run Carter's Urban Rescue, the place you call if, say, an alligator is loose in the city pool!  The series is full of friendship, sibling trouble, crazy animal escapades, and helping the planet.  This is the perfect new series to start a new school year.  Recommended by Lisa from Westwood.

Backyard chicken farming is all the rage.  Whether you are ready to fully embrace the urban homesteading movement or just want a few fresh eggs, it's not that hard to raise your own chickens.

Before you get started, you will want to be aware of Denver's zoning ordinances and fees for chickens.  If these don't sound too daunting, there are a few other things to consider and the Library has lots of books that can help you out.  Be sure to do your homework before you buy your chickens!
