The Solarpunk Coloring Book is a comic book for adults that you color for yourself, a science-fiction 3D graphic novel. It contains over 100 pages (8.5x11") to color, and 30 images are stereoscopic 3D which can be viewed without 3D glasses. Chapter 1 explains several ways to view the 3D images before and after you color them. Following chapters tell five adult stories of couples in the near and distant future full of romance, adventure, and wonder. The Millennial generation and beyond learn to live with changing climates, scarce resources, no job security and no fossil fuels. All they have is their education, the sun, wind, and sea, the latest technology, and perhaps an army of helper robots. It is a book of future fiction; or is it future fact?
Your Inner Mammal takes on anxiety, anger and depression -- the major emotional maladies that afflict us in the cold, impersonal and threatening modern world. To do that, Dr. Neff builds on the concept of “your inner child.” That concept has served us well in mental health for many years. If you are still a child – and a lucky one -- someone else may meet your emotional needs. But not if you are an adult. Your lover doesn’t want to love you as a needy child. They want – and need – a competent adult. In short, the inner child concept tells you to attend to your own emotional needs. Your Inner Mammal tells you a lot more. It tells you what those needs are. And it provides chapter after chapter of tools to meet those needs – including chapters entitled, ” The Importance of Being Calm,” “Your Angry Mammal,” “Your Inner Playmate,” “ Your Inner Dancer, ” “Getting In Touch,” and “You Are Part of Nature – Embrace It. ”

“While full of tales of innovation, ideas that challenge our practice, and a regular dose of critical thinking, these pages are likewise full of humanism and heart.” Brian Kenney, Director at White Plains Public Library (NY); from the Foreword Adaptation to change that’s based on thoughtful planning and grounded in the mission of libraries: it’s a model that respected LIS thinker and educator Michael Stephens terms “hyperlinked librarianship.” And the result, for librarians in leadership positions as well as those working on the front lines, is flexible librarianship that’s able to stay closely aligned with the needs and wants of library users. In this collection of essays from his “Office Hours” columns in Library Journal, Stephens explores the issues and emerging trends that are transforming the profession. Among the topics he discusses are: the importance of accessible, welcoming, and responsive library environments that invite open and equitable participation, and which factors are preventing many libraries from ramping up community engagement and user-focused services;challenges, developments, and emerging opportunities in the field, including new ways to reach users and harness curiosity;considerations for prospective librarians, from knowing what you want out of the profession to learning how to aim for it;why LIS curriculum and teaching styles need to evolve;mentoring and collaboration; andthe concept of the library as classroom, a participatory space to experiment with new professional roles, new technologies, and new ways of interacting with patrons.Bringing together ideas for practice, supporting evidence from recent research, and insights into what lies ahead, this book will inform and inspire librarians of all types.
