Teen Think Tank: Independence Day

Teen Think Tank | Oceans of Possibility

Happy Independence Day! This is a time when we think about our forefathers and the difficult work they did to establish our country as a free nation. Since then, America has long been a place for people from all countries and backgrounds to come and pursue their own independence, in their own way. Dive into our collection for some amazing reads (and listens!) that explore stories based on the diverse backgrounds and experiences of America and its people. 

Teen Think Tank: National Adopt a Cat Month

Teen Think Tank | Oceans of Possibility

Did you know that June is National Adopt a Cat Month? The National Adopt a Cat Month was formed by American Humane 45 years ago in order to encourage people to stop buying cats and, instead, adopt them from shelters. The month selected for the adoption drive was June, since a lot of cats tend to reproduce during this month — and, since a cat can birth up to seven kittens, it’s not a surprise that most of them often end up in animal shelters.
