Every year we are inundated with the "Best of" and "Worst of" lists.  This time, I am throwing it out at you.  What were your best moments, books, movies of 2009?  How about your worst?  Here's mine:

Finishing my Master's Degree, Moving to Texas, Finding an awesome apartment that I could afford

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (hands down!)

Holiday Hooplah

Every year we have many things to remind us that the holidays have come... and gone.  This year the library had a holiday party that had everyone young and old creating Gingerbread houses.  Everyone had an amazining time and produced some amazing creations.  Check our calendar for future events!

Snowflake crafts


This month we're doing a couple of snowflake crafts to help everyone decorate for the holidays.  Last week and Monday, December 7th at 4pm we're making Snowflake window clings.  They are easy to make and work like a charm.  On Wednesday, December 9th and Monday, Decembter 14th at 4pm we're making Sparkling Ice Crystals.  Come and enjoy making these beautiful crafts!

Love it or Hate it?

Every time my teens come into a program one topic inevitably comes up: Twilight by Stephanie Meyer.  The words hate and love come up equally in the conversation as different teens "express" there opinions of the series.  This is happening only more frequently since the second movie is about to come out and the hype is reaching an all time high...again.  So the figh-er, "discussion" continues.  Do you love it or hate it? 

December Teen Events

Hey! Just wanted to remind everyone about our teen Anime Club that meets once a month.  This month we're meeting on November 20th at 4pm. All teens are welcome and we'll have free drinks and snacks as we watch the continuing saga of Lina Inverse, Gourry Gabriev, Amelia Wil Tesla Seyrunn, and Zelgadis Greywords on their quest to seek answers from the Claire Bible.  Of course all of this is accomplished with quite a bit of hilarity and sarcasm.  Hope to see you there.

Bewitched by "The Crucible"

Last night I went to see the final showing of the Mayde Creek High School Theatre Company's production of The Crucible.  First I'd like to comment on the fabulous parents who run the Booster Club.  Bravo!  As a former High School performing arts participant I know how important the Boosters are and I think the parents are doing a great job.
