Come See John’s Movie Pick on Mondays and Wednesdays

On Mondays and Wednesdays at 4 pm in the meeting room our resident film expert John shows an excellent film he personally selects. He shows new releases, popular movies such as Pixar animated films, and occasionally an independent film on Mondays that teens will likely enjoy. Keep an eye out for the advertisements around the library announcing the upcoming films. Sometimes there will be a certain theme for the month like Sci Fi films or African American films for February (this month!). So show up and expand your horizons.

Discover the Winter Games Anew!

For those of you who have missed the myriad of commercials playing on television these days, the Winter Olympic Games are about to start in Vancouver on February 12th. This is only the third time in the History of the Olympics that Canada, the second largest nation on Earth, will host the Olympics. I am looking forward to this year’s winter Olympics, especially in light of what happened in the 2008 Olympic games in Beijing. Forty-eight new World Records and over a hundred thirty new Olympic Records were set in 2008. If we see anything as exciting at that in the 2010 games, they will be glorious to watch.
