That's Entertainment!

red curtainEver since I was a little girl trying to dance around the house in plastic dress-up heels, I have loved movie musicals. There is just something so charming in the calculated spontaneity of a group of strangers bursting into song or dancing down the street together. Sometimes movie musicals are bursting with glitz and glam, like 42nd Street, and sometimes they lean more towards angst, like Fiddler on the Roof. No matter the type of musical, ther...

It’s summertime and school’s out! If summer boredom is already setting in, the library is hosting three programs for teens next week.

Feeling crafty? Want to make your very own Demented Doll? Bring your friends and watch a movie while you create your best (or creepiest) doll. All supplies provided, but feel free to bring your own. Meet in the first floor Meeting Room on Tuesday, June 15 from 3:00-5:00pm.

It's a Mystery

old television setI am particularly fond of procedural crime shows. Unrealistic they may be, but I still enjoy them. I love how reliable they are. Whenever I turn on an episode, I know there will be a crime of some sort to solve and that 95% of the time the bad guy will get what’s coming to him. I love trying to figure out which suspect is the red herring and which one actually committed the crime. I love the wacky methods some TV detectives (agents, crime scene investigators…) will devise to try to catch the bad guy. Most of all, I love it when I think I’ve solved the crime, only to discover it was someone else completely.

With most current TV shows over for the season, it’s the perfect time to get hooked on a new show! Browse the HCPL catalog and request a crime show today!
