It’s already September – 8 days ago! Hope you all had a great weekend and a great start to your month.

I met with the Teen Library Council last Thursday, and they gave me some great ideas for programs and additions to the teen area. If you have some ideas you’d like to share about the library or have things you’d like to see at the library come to our next meeting on Wednesday, October 1, 4-5pm. All you need to do is bring your ideas and I feed you snacks- WIN for you!

This week we have two awesome programs that you definitely need to check out:

Scriptwriting 101: For anyone interested in scriptwriting! The script is part 1 of a year-long event that will cover all aspects of movie-making (costuming, make-up, camera & lighting, set design). The end result of these workshops will be a mini-movie created by YOU! This summer was the first year we created a student movie. The article below about our student summer movie was featured in the Daily Reporter.

Our second awesome program is for all you Sherlock fans!

Thursday Fandom- BBC’s Sherlock: The game is on!!!

For die-hard fans or for those who haven’t seen the show yet (you’ll be a die-hard fan after 1 episode!), gather all to watch and talk about one of the world’s most famous detectives. Trench coats and deer-stalker caps are encouraged. It’s elementary that we’ll have awesome snacks – like Cumberbatch cupcakes… Eeeee!! :)

Have an awesome day, and I’ll see you soon!

Happy Shark Week!

August 11th, 2014

 

A little fun fact about myself: I love sharks. They are fascinating to me, and I love this time of year when the Discovery Channel holds their annual Shark Week. I will get minimal fun-reading done this week because my time not spent at the library will be parked in front of my TV watching sharks.

Not only does this week highlight one of the ocean’s top apex predators, but it provides information on many reputable oceanic conservation organizations and movements.

Check out the Top 10 Shark Conservation Projects complied by Discovery Channel and the 20 Ways Sharks Help Humans.

Respect the shark and he will give you a high-five! How awesome is this photo?!

One person CAN make a difference whether it’s for sharks, rainforests, world hunger – whatever your passion. Go forth into the world and do good! :)

 

Happy Shark Week!
