Summer Reading Club is finally here! I’ve been waiting all year for it. Summer Reading Club is one of my favorite times of the year. It incorporates two of my favorite things: Summer & reading. Life is more fun in the sun when reading a good book. You may have noticed that it just so happens to also be Get Caught Reading Month. So come on into you local public library, sign up for Summer Reading Club (ages zero to infinity and beyond), and get caught reading!
Also, this week Library Assistant Dawn Heap is helping us out around the Lake Sinclair Library Branch. Why not stop on in and say hello.
Until next Tuesday, we’ll be right here at the Lake!
This year we are going to Dig into Reading with our children. The teens will explore Groundbreaking Reads, and the adults will be reading Beneath the Surface. You can sign up at either at the Mary Vinson Memorial Library or the Lake Sinclair Library. You can also sign up on this webpage. Look to your right and find the “Pages” heading. Scroll down and click on Summer Reading Club. Read more
Welcome back everyone! I know it’s been a little bit of time since we have had one of these, but here we go again. This time I will do things a little differently and not tell you about a movie that I have seen, but about some movies that have come out, or are soon to come out. The first will be Star Trek Into Darkness. This one came out this past Thursday on May 16th and is a movie that I am about to see very soon. It seems like a good movie, and I have read some good things about it so far http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/star_trek_11/ so it should be well worth watching. Read more
We know that reading classic literature can help pull you out of a bad mood, can make you think and reflect on life in a optimistic manner and generally aid your well being. But the positive aspects of reading do not stop there! Current research has found that reading engages the brain in very unusual ways. Read more
Hi! Welcome to Reference Thursday! This week I’m blogging about an anime called “Devil May Cry.” This anime is actually based off of a Japanese video game of the same name. I’m not a gamer so I can’t give you my opinion of the game, but I can tell you that there are at least three other Devil May Cry games (2, 3, and 4). At any rate, the anime is awesome!
