Watch the Book, Read the Movie!
Join Teen Librarian Christina on Sunday afternoons to watch a recent movie based on a popular teen novel, and then discuss the book vs. the movie: which did you like better? How would you have filmed the book? Free popcorn! Copies of the next book in our series will be available at each club meeting for the first 15 teens who register at the Reference Desk or by calling (330) 688-3295 ext. 4; IF YOU JUST WISH TO WATCH THE MOVIE, NO REGISTRATION IS NECESSARY.
These programs will be held in the Stow-Munroe Falls Room and are cosponsored by the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library and the Friends of the Library.

If you like borrowing videogames from the library, then you'll like this news: starting today, all of our videogames check out one week longer and the limit has increased by 1! So you can now check out THREE games at a time, and you get to keep them for TWO WEEKS instead of one. And, if the game you want is checked out, you can now PLACE HOLDS on videogames through our catalog. So you'll get a phone call, text or email when that game is returned and ready for you to borrow. So what are you waiting for? Check out our game list!

And, [drum roll please], our two Grand Prize winners, drawn at random from all of those instant scratchoff tickets (winning and losing tickets both), are: Katelyn Allen, winner of $75.00, and Jessica Albright, winner of the iPod Nano. Congratulations to you both! Thank you everyone for reading this summer! Hope to see you soon at the library, or maybe at your school. Keep reading!
Hello again! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I return this Monday morning with another book soundtrack for you to enjoy. I decided on another popular title, Beautiful Creatures. Forgive me for picking something that might be considered cliche; I'm previewing some other books that aren't so well-known for your musical enjoyment. My interpretation of this title may also be a bit different from yours because I read the graphic novel.
