"I'm very happy to have my work up in my local library," said Yagid. "Maplewood's libraries are a great asset to the town and are so much more and well beyond being just about books."

On Friday, Aug. 17 from 11:00 a.m. to 4 p.m., it's the "Dream Big" Summer Reading Club Finale. The library invites children of all ages to drop in during the day for a maze, obstacle course, face painting, games and prizes.
