The Library Kids is a middle grade (ages 8 to 12 and up) book series about a group of children who find a secret, magical library inside the Cave of the Blue Mounds that has the entire history and knowledge of the Earth in the past, present and future. The children can go back in time and meet famous people from the past and travel to any part around the world. However, the children will end up with a mission at the end of the first book. Their mission will be that they must battle the seven Enemies of the Library and defeat the Dark Master that the Enemies answer to. To do this, they must travel around the world to ancient sites and collect a set of twelve crystals that when put together will make a prison for the Dark Master. The children will travel to ancient sites in America, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Ireland, Greece, Mali, Egypt, India, Tibet, and Australia throughout the seven book series.
There will be some American history as well as ancient mythology, folklore, and legend in each book. This series is sure to captivate the middle grade audience as well as adults. Many of the places that are mentioned in the books, are real places that can be visited as well. Please refer to the Links button on this website or to My Blog button.

These books are ahead of their time in some respects and in simply just observing the past in respects to the process of censorship and propaganda show how history repeats itself. The main theme of these books is about dealing with history manipulation and erasure and censorship of knowledge. Knowledge is power and time and time again, censorship and propaganda are used to "dumb down" and manipulate the masses for the benefit of a few who profit off of lies. As in the past, censorship and propaganda are occurring at a rapid pace online and offline. It does not have anything to do with inappropriate material or harassment (all though these cases are certainly an issue online as well as offline) but rather censorship of the true history of the planet as well as current events. The story of The Library Kids is timeless and applicable to the human condition at any time.
