Twilight the Movie

The first book in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series is scheduled to come to the big screen in December of 2008. Kristen Stewart, who was most recently in The Messengers and Into the Wild, will play Bella Swan and Robert Pattinson, who was Cedric Diggory in the last two Harry Potter movies, will play our favorite vampire Edward. If you want to know the latest details about the movie go to The Internet Movie Database website.

If you still haven't read Twilight, stop by the Library and check it out-- and remember, if it's checked out (and it might be, because it's so popular) you can put on hold on it at the Reference Services Desk or from your computer at home!
