Teen Button Battle - Aug 7-19

Legos versus Minecraft? Which will win? You decide! Come by the teen area at any time between August 7-19 to pick up your button that casts your vote.

What is a button battle? It’s where teens vote on two or more of their favorite fandoms by taking a button they can pin to a backpack or anything else. The fandom that has the most buttons taken (aka “votes”), they are the one that wins!

Book Hunters in Brief #104: The Force Awakens!

From everything we have heard and most of the reviews we have read, the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is one of those rare occasions when the movie lives up to both the studio marketing machine hype and the hardcore fans' expectations.

But the fact is that even if you see the movie three times a day for the next week, you will still have a lot of time to kill between viewings (seven hours and twelve minutes per day to be exact). Even if you figure you will be getting a good eight hours of shut-eye each night (you won't), that's still over nine hours a day of waiting. How are you going to make it?
