New Rules for Videogames!

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!

Teen summer reading is over, and wow, you guys all read a lot of books, magazines, graphic novels and audiobooks! We had 285 teen readers, who read 3477 books! Woohoo! 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!

Another Soundtrack from Gina

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. 

Smash Bros Brawl winners

Congratulations to our winning players in the Super Smash Bros Brawl tournament, Ben (1st place) and James (2nd place)! They received a $50 and a $25 giftcard, respectively, from GameStop, courtesy of the Friends of the Library. Thanks to all our players who came out to have a fun time on the Wii.

Hello from Gina!

Hey guys! My name’s Gina and I’m Christina’s practicum student this summer at SMFPL. I’m going to school at Kent State to be a Teen Librarian and a practicum is kinda like student teaching (except we’re librarians, not teachers).  Occasionally I’ll be posting stuff here related to Summer Reading. Today I have something new that I’m creating and I want to share it with you. When I read a book and especially if I really like it I always get a song stuck in my head.

More Minecraft!!

Because of a wonderful overwhelming response--in other words, LOTS of people signing up!--we have added 6 more sessions of Minecraft Mondays! We now have sessions that start at noon, on the same 6 Mondays, because most of the 2pm sessions are full. So if you were hoping to get in and called yesterday, but the sessions you wanted were full, try calling back and we should be able to fit you in. This is for any teens who have completed 6th grade, through 12th grade. Details here. Thanks!
