Homeschool Students Can Enroll in Library Skills 101

Registration doesn't begin until September 26, but I wanted to go ahead and highlight our upcoming Library Skills 101 event on Friday, October 10, 2014 at 10:30 a.m.  Homeschool students (K-8th grade) will learn their way around the library with a super fun and informative scavenger hunt.  We'll also do a quick session on navigating the online catalog.  There are only 50 spots available, so make sure you register online or by phone (444-7830).

The Maze Runner -- Remember, Survive, Run

I loved The Maze Runner by James Dashner.  But I'm a little worried about the movie, which hits theaters this weekend.  I finally saw a full preview for it, and I was totally freaked out by the Grievers!!!!  How am I going to make it through the whole film without covering my eyes?!?!  If you haven't read the book yet, I highly recommend you do!  The story is equal parts The Hunger Games and Lord of the Flies, survival at its most intense level.  Sixteen-year-old Thomas wakes up trapped in the middle of a maze, with no memory of the outside world.  He realizes he must work with the Glade's community of captives if he wants to escape and uncover his past.

The Maze Runner is available as a book, a book-on-CD, and on a Nook.  You can also download the audiobook and ebook from Overdrive.
