Reminder about Volunteer Opportunity this Saturday!

TLC Members voted to volunteer to represent MGPL at a gift wrapping table located at the Lord and Taylor at Old Orchard Mall. Volunteers will wrap gifts during the afternoon on Saturday, December 16, 2006. Please respond to this post or call the Library at 847-929-5101 for more information if you are interested in joining the group of teen volunteers.

Packages will be in boxes and easy to wrap - no experience necessary! All volunteers will receive a MGPL Teen Zone t-shirt to keep and wear while we wrap the gifts. Come for the whole time or just a few hours. All volunteers are welcome and appreciated!

A Must Read! From Read, Eat, And Discuss Book Club

The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray by Chris Wooding was an overwhelming favorite at December's Read, Eat, And Discuss book club meeting on Thursday, December 7.

It was tough to decide which was the scariest part of this fantasy, thriller plot that twisted through the dark streets of London. The group decided if this book was made into a movie that we would go see it in a snap! We also decided which Hollywood stars we would cast as all of the characters.

Please post a comment if you have read the title and have thoughts to share.

Join us at the upcoming meetings, Thursday, January 4 @ 7pm to discuss How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff and Thursday, February 1 @ 7pm to discuss Looking for Alaska by John Green.

New members are welcome at all book club meetings.

Happy Reading!

Saturday's Snowflakes!

Okay, so maybe our snowflakes did not turn out EXACTLY like the photo...but they did turn out pretty cool!

Everyone left with one finished snowflake and a kit to make a second one at home. I will add photos as soon as I receive them from the Morton Grove Champion newspaper photographer that dropped by to take photos. It was a wonderful afternoon of crafting, laughing, sipping cocoa, and breaking for snacks.

Thank you to those that attended and braved the winter weather! Keep warm inside this week with a good book, DVD, or PS2 game from the Library!
