Encyclopedia Brown: A 50th Anniversary
It is hard to believe, but Encyclopedia Brown has been solving cases for 50 years. The first Encyclopedia Brown book came out in 1963 (after being rejected by two dozen publishers, something Mr. Sobol liked to tell aspiring writers to encourage them not to lose faith in their work).
Donald wrote more than 80 books. In 1976, he won an Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for the Encyclopedia Brown series.
Encyclopedia never ages and never charges more than 25 cents an hour for his detective services. Mr. Sobol wanted each book to stand alone, so that children could start with anyone in the series and read the books in any order.
Readers in grades 4-12 write a personal letter to an author describing their personal reaction to a book, story, or poem. Students may write about works of fiction or nonfiction. Entries in Spanish will be accepted and translated for the New Mexico judges. State judges will select the top letter writers in New Mexico, who then advance to the national competition. Please visit http://www.nmstatelibrary.org/letters-about-literature to learn more about the contest.

The Farmington Public Library at the Bayless Power Library assists the Boys & Girls Club of Farmington with the educational component that aims to ensure that all Club members graduate from high school on time and are ready for a post-secondary education and a 21st-century career. Researchers tell us programs like these help combat kids' summer learning loss, keep kids safe, inspire them to learn, and help working families. Powerlibrary@infoway.org (505) 566-1202.
The Power Library is open from 3pm to 6pm on Monday through Thursday. During no school days, the club is open from 10am to 3pm. Club Tech is scheduled on Tuesdays at 4pm and participants learn about digital art on the club's computers.
