The Page Turners WORLD PREMIERE & Holes on Our Outdoor Movie Screen TONIGHT!

We’ve got your Saturday night plans covered! If you already have plans, CANCEL THEM and head to HCPL’s Sugar Creek Branch lawn for two free outdoor movies + popcorn.

Tonight we’ll be showing the world premiere of The Page Turners, a hilarious short film that takes a look at what happens when readers get sucked into a good book—literally. This movie has been written, directed, acted by, and edited by your Hancock County peers. Support your local arts and talent!

After you enjoy The Page Turners, we’ll be showing the movie Holes, based on the Louis Sachar‘s novel.


It’s a beautiful night for an outdoor movie night!!! Movies will start when it gets dark. See you on the lawn!

Summer Reading is NOT Over Yet!

I know summer is winding down and you’ll all be heading back to school this week, but there’s still plenty of time to log in your summer reading books. I bet you also have time to squeeze in a couple fun books before you’re busy again with homework!

I have a ton of awesome books waiting for a good home! For those of you who’ve read 7 or more books, please come in and grab your prize book! For those of you that haven’t reached 7 books yet, you have until August 1 to read and log. 🙂

If you want book suggestions, I’m always happy to recommend new titles. Just find me or knock on the office door in the teen room.

See you soon!

Divergent Lock-in Recap


Wow – Our Divergent lock-in was excellent!! Huge thank you to all the teens who came out! It looked like everyone had a blast – I know I did. What were your favorite parts of the lock-in? – I’m guessing capture the flag and face painting are on many of your favorite lists.

I only got a couple photos from the night, but they are pretty awesome. Here we have Cody, representing Dauntless while decked out in full face paint:

Hee! Well done Becca and Alyssa! I think this could be a new look for you, Cody…

Hope to see you all in the library soon. I’ll be at the Summer Reading Carnival  on Wednesday from 1-4. Come find me at the Monster Ball booth and enjoy our outside carnival!
