The excitement is heating up as the Dodgers head into the weekend for Game 3 in Houston to face the Astros. The series is currently tied at 1-1. Here at the Los Angeles Public Library we are big supporters of our hometown team. We are currently cheering them on via Instagram, with a library tradition of book spine poetry trash. Houston Public Library has joined in as well:
