Simpsons Movie this Thursday

February's Teen Library Council meeting will be very different. Instead of talking about movies, music, and books we're relaxing and watching a movie. Come to the Library this Thursday to watch The Simpsons movie, eat, and hang out with your friends.

Not a part of TLC? That's ok- anyone in 7-12th grade is invited.

I'll see you in the Activity Room @ 6:00!

Cirque du Freak Movie

Another popular book series is being turned into a movie.
Production of the film Cirque du Freak , which is based on Darren Shan's Cirque du Freak series, is scheduled to start this month. Actor Chris J. Kelly is playing Darren, John C. Reilly is playing the vampire Larten Crepsley, and Salma Hayek is the bearded lady, Madame Truska.
The movie is scheduled to be released sometime in 2009, so you still have time to read the books before the movie comes out. You can find them in the Teen Series section.
