If you have scrolled through any social media or checked your favorite book blog in the past few days, you have undoubtedly heard of the controversy surrounding BookCon's panel featuring only white males. News of this panel quickly spread, bringing light to the lack of diversity in Young Adult literature. Consequently, a group of authors initiated a campaign, #WeNeedDiverseBooks, that has since taken the internet by storm and, hopefully, forced publishers to take note.

In late 2011, Richland Library St. Andrews and the Columbia Chess Club formed an alliance and started the St. Andrews Chess Club. It has been one of the most successful and well attended recurring programs we have had at our location. It is always suprising how many people are enthusiasts for the game. One of the best things about it is that it attracts people of all ages and skill levels and suprisingly some of the young players are every bit as good as the older ones.
