The Fault in Our Stars. If I Stay. Divergent. Are you noticing a trend at the movie theaters?

Of course, that’s just some of what’s come out in theaters this summer. Hollywood has been adapting YA novels at a rapid-fire pace pretty much ever since Harry Potter made it cool. And a little quick googling will bestow many hits upon thee if you’re searching for what book-to-movie might just be the next Hunger Games. Here are just a few promising adaptations still in early stages of production giving you plenty of time to catch the book first - if you haven't already read them!

Listen Before You See It

With movie awards season in full swing, I started thinking about all of the soon-to-be movie novels that I need to listen to  before I head to the theaters in 2014. With everything from a slew of young adult selections to hard-hitting biographies set to hit the big screen this year, there is a lot to look forward to!

What book turned movie are you most excited to see this year?

 

Christmas Cheer!

Do you like  to sing Christmas carols at your Christmas party? Do you listen to Christmas music 24/7 in your car, at work, and at home? Do you read Christmas stories by the Christmas tree or have Christmas movie marathons? If you answered yes to any of the above then you are in luck. Our library offers a variety of books, music, and movies for this special holiday season to share with your family and loved ones. Stop by and check out these items today!
