Library News (& a little "gossip") :)

"Love goes toward love, as schoolboys (or girls!) from their books...''
-- from "Romeo & Juliet"
Everyone's favorite Head of Youth Services, frequently referred to as "Miss Lynn," got hitched last weekend. Henceforth, she is forever more known as (you guessed it) Mrs. Montague!
So, be sure to stop by the children's desk the next time your in town, & tell her that you heard she was a beautiful bride.
She was!
The "next time your in town" should be this Wed. 9/24 @ 4:30PM for the return of
Teen Group! I'm guessing that we shall talk trash, Twilight, and more...
See ya then!

Did You Know...

...that The Muppet Show premiered exactly 32 years ago today? Or (oddly enough) that Scooby Doo premiered on the very same day in 1969? So, should y'all ever need be privvy,
it's a fact: Scooby the sleuth is older (& wiser?) than Kermit the frog.
On an unrelated note, since you were kind enough to ask...
We'll meet in from 4:30-5:30 PM in the storytime room as usual. I'll bring the snacks (& probably a book I'll try to convince you to read w/me...). You guys just bring your sweet selves--& any other interested fellow book geeks.
In the meantime, check out "Dead is the New Black," the first of a recently added series by Marlene Perez.
If you like vampires, werewolves, psychics w/ a dash of humor,
it just might tickle your fancy...
I thought it was fun @ any rate! :)

News (Briefs)

"Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school."

~Albert Einstein

(Meaning: School's important, I won't argue that, but don't stress too much now that you're all busy as bees again! One must always make time for a little R & R (aka: rest and relaxation)

(and a good book!)

Re: that "good book," lots of 'em coming in these days as a certain librarian's been on an ordering frenzy. If you've caught wind of any new goodies, I'd love suggestions!

On that note, I've got one, be you in the mood for more vampiric I just read a teen-friendly "adult" book that you might enjoy. It's called The Society of S by Susan Hubbard. I was enticed to read it by the cover art, which bears an uncanny resemblence to Eclipse. Good marketing scheme, eh?

FYI: Sunday is "Grandparents Day" so if you've got anyone special--give 'em a call, a hug, or both!
