Have you picked out your summer books yet?  Don’t forget about the Black-Eyed Susan books!  Stop by the Media Center to get a Black-Eyed Susan bookmark to help you pick out your summer books.  Reading is sooo good for your imagination.  “We lose ourselves in books.  We find ourselves there, too.”

If you see Kasey Baylor, give her a fist pump for getting her artwork into next year's Visual Arts Exhibition. It could be at the Airport's Youth Art Gallery, or MCPS Executive Offices, or Maryland Art Education Association Student Exhibit, or about three other locations. Way to go, Kasey!


Everyone that had art in the Montgomery Mall exhibit, please pick your work up as soon as possible.  
Ms. Kokes would like to say congrats to you all!

If you are hanging onto your Media Center books, it is time to let go and return them NOW!!  Don’t make us come find you to get our books back.  That makes us grumpy, and you don’t want to see a grumpy librarian!  Then get your public library card out and check out books to read this summer.  It is soooo relaxing to read good books while you suntan.

Ryan Higa
Ryan Higa, as many people know, is a popular Japanese American youtuber with over 2.9 billion views on his channel NigaHiga. However, his position today was not so easy to achieve.

Before he became a youtuber, he actually was on the path to a career studying nuclear medicine and science, but he eventually followed his hobby, and kept on making videos. Ryan Higa is known for breaking racial stereotypes and encouraging people not to give into failure. For all NigaHiga or HigaTV fans, here’s a quick quiz:

Hello! Today, we’ll be talking about Ichiro Suzuki, a Japanese professional baseball player. Ichiro was born on October 27th, 1973 in Kasugai, Japan. Thanks to his father Nobuyuki, Ichiro got an early start in the sport, starting to train at age 3. He began his career as a professional baseball player in Japan, but later Ichiro joined the Seattle Mariners, a Major League Baseball team. Ichiro was also the first Japanese everyday position player in the Major Leagues, immediately becoming a sensation with his strong outfield arm and ability to spray hits to all fields. The master batsman was even the second player to win the Rookie of The Year and MVP Awards in the same season. He was later traded off to the Yankees. Ichiro played with them until 2014, and continued to topple records and earn achievements. Now, he plays outfield for the Miami Marlins. Thanks for listening, and have a wonderful day!

Jeremy Lin is considered to be one of the best Asian American Basketball Players the NBA has ever seen. He was born on August 23, 1988 in Torrance California to parents who had both emigrated from Taiwan to the United States. Jeremy Lin went to Harvard and was a 3 time all-conference player in the Ivy league. He became an NBA player in 2010, for the Golden State Warriors, but on this team he rarely played. In the next season he joined the New York Knicks and became part of the starting lineup. Late in the season, Jeremy surprised everyone and became one of the top Point Guards in the NBA. The term “Linsanity” was very popular at the time in describing how insanely well Lin was playing. He turned around the Knicks season and somehow managed to land them a playoff spot. Jeremy Lin still plays in the NBA on the Brooklyn Nets today. Thanks for your time!
