Kimberly C's blog



It’s the height of summer and, boy, is it hot! When the daily temperature is in the triple digits and walking from the car to the door has me covered in a sheen of sweat, I can’t help but wish for cooler climes. When beach days and migration aren’t an option, I like to curl up on the couch and watch cold weather movies. I can’t honestly say that watching movies with snow makes me feel less like I’m about to suffer heat stroke, but it’s always worth a try. If nothing else, I am inside with the AC while the movie is playing!

If you’re in need of colder weather but stuck in Texas, browse the HCPL catalog and request a movie today!

Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

baseballsIt’s the middle of summer and halfway through baseball season. I’m not a huge baseball fan myself, but I do enjoy a good baseball movie. Baseball movies remind me of sitting in the nosebleed section at the ballpark, eating hot dogs and peanuts, singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the seventh inning stretch, watching fireworks after the game, and cheering on my favorite team.

If you’re like me and can’t make it out to Minute Maid Park to watch the Astros play, there are plenty of baseball movies to get you through the season. Browse the HCPL catalog and request your favorite today!
