2013 Oscar Nominations

This morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominations for the 85th Academy Awards.

Poll Results: Gandalf vs Dumbledore

gandalf vs dumbledoreLast week, we polled library customers to see who they thought would win in a wizard battle: Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings, or Dumbledore from Harry Potter. Although Gandalf held a solid early lead, Dumbledore rallied at the end of the week to snag the title in a well-fought duel.

Don’t miss another opportunity to express your opinion in a new poll next month!...

A Classic Christmas

Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year…
- Christmas Time is Here, Vince Guaraldi

We are now halfway through December and there is no denying it: Christmas is in the air! Since I was a little girl, Christmas has always been my favorite holiday.
