Hats off to Stanford’s own Andrew Luck for promoting the love of reading. Mr. Luck has started a book club via social media. He plans to introduce a book he enjoyed as a child for younger readers, as well as a book for more seasoned readers. According to his web site he’ll introduce a new book in stages that correspond with the NFL schedule: off-season, mini-camp, summer training and pre-season. He plans to bring in guest athletes to take over until after the Super Bowl. Participants may follow along on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter using #ALBookClub. More information about the book club may be found on his website.

The first selections for the book club are Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli and the Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown. Both titles can be found in Stanford University Libraries.

These videos are part of the department of Learning and Outreach's effort to "flip the classroom".

Beverly Cleary, the well known children’s author The Library of Congress designated as a living legend, will be turning 100 on April 12th. In previous years “Drop Everything and Read” programs have been held in libraries nationwide on April 12th in honor of Mrs. Cleary’s birthday, but why just celebrate her for a day? Instead, Cubberley has put up a display of books for the whole month honoring both Ms. Cleary as well as the spirit of Drop Everything and Read.
