    Sometimes You Win—Sometimes You Learn for Teens: 
How to Turn a Loss Into a Win


Teens learn how any setback--a championship loss, a bad grade, a botched audition-can be seen as a step forward when teens possess the right tools to turn that loss into a gain of knowledge. Drawing on nearly fifty years of leadership experience, Dr. Maxwell provides a roadmap for becoming a true learner, someone who wins in the face of problems, failures, and losses.

The teachings from Sometimes You Win, Sometimes You Learn have been edited and adapted just for teens. This Young Readers edition features all-new stories of real life figures that overcame adversity early in their lives, including entrepreneur Steve Jobs, Olympic Gold Medalists Gabby Douglas and Mikaela Shiffrin, and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Malala Yousafzai.

Love Your Library Month

Love your library month is all about giving back and appreciating all of the services and resources our library provides everyday. We celebrated and made sure our library was in tip-top shape by straightening books on library shelves and putting them back in order. It felt great to help out our library staff.
