Nancy's work has always focused on children and young adults – as a
researcher, counselor, teacher, parent, and now as a writer. Her work and research has allowed her to live all
over the world – in Malawi, Africa, Hawaii, Japan, the western Pacific,
and, most recently, the Navajo Nation where I hike, ride my bike and
attend local rodeos.
is a powerful way to build compassion and bridge understanding between
cultures. Story has the power to heal as well as teach."
Nancy has written several books including Navajo Year, Walk Through Many Seasons (Arizona Book of the Year) and Warriors in the Crossfire (Colorado Book of the Year). My recent titles include No-Name Baby (Top 100 Books of the Year, Bank Street) and my newest, a Junior Library Guild Selection, Cowboy Up, Ride the Navajo Rodeo.

So, what is it with Minecraft? A construction game (using laptops) in which players mine, break, build, and manipulate various types of blocks in a 3-dimensional environment.” At the library, we want to take it so much further than this. Instead of looking at kids and teens as being “obsessed” with the game, see them as engaged instead. Kids who play Minecraft are creating entirely from their imagination, in a self-directed manner, using elements of design and complex computing skills, in a virtual world with little to no violence and in which working together and sharing is more beneficial than not. Starting to sound a little better?
Many of the youth programs are youth-led and designed by our youth staff.
Consider volunteering your time and/or applying for a summer position!
