Anime Club rescheduled due to snowstorm

Whew, was that a storm or was that a storm?! 8 inches or more of snow fell in our area on Friday and Saturday, and as you may know we had to close the library on Saturday Jan. 10 (never even opened). So we've rescheduled Anime Club from that day to this coming Saturday, January 17. Still at 1:30 p.m. We'll be watching "Chrono Crusade" episodes and snacking on pocky. :-) See you there!

Take a stroll down Boardwalk to Park Place

Our annual Lifesize Monopoly games were a huge success; both games had over 20 players on teams of 2 or 3. The pace got hectic near the end of the game as teams traded properties, built monopolies and then added houses and hotels to the board in a last ditch effort to wring more money out of their competitors. Lots of fun in Lifesize! More photos will be posted in the Photos section soon, so check back. And if you didn't get to play this year, we'll be doing it again next year and we'll have even more games so that no one gets left out.

Get any good books for Christmas?

Cover image Cover image Did you get any good new books for Christmas? I'm currently reading Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke, the third book in the Inkheart trilogy about a girl who can read characters out of books and also read people INTO books, and it's getting very intense. Meggie and her whole family are now trapped inside Inkworld, the world of Inkheart, and there are a lot of exciting things happening.

Join the high school Book Club!

Cover imageCover image If you're a student at the Stow-Munroe Falls High School and you like to read, stop by the school library during your study hall to join our Book Club.  Each study hall group is reading a book and discussing it, plus talking about other books and choosing what we want to read for next time. I bring copies of each month's book to the school for you to read, and you have a whole month to read it. This month we discussed The book Thief by Marcus Zusak, and An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. Next meeting will be Wed.
