So, we’re going to have a Teens Talk Books discussion of the super-cool new book, I Am Number Four. And lo and behold, there is a movie of this book ALREADY in production! Check out the amazing trailer!
Intrigued? Make sure you come to Teens Talk Books on Oct. 22 @ 4 pm!
Today’s the day! Stop by at 3 pm to catch our big-screen showing of “Iron Man 2,” starring Robert Downey Jr (rated PG-13).
We’re excited to show “Dear John” tomorrow on the big screen @ 3 pm! We’ll have cool A/C and popcorn — you just bring yourself, a friend, and maybe some Kleenex for me, ’cause I hear this is a tearjerker…
Happy July, everyone! I know I’ve been posting a lot of videos lately, but I couldn’t resist sharing this one, brought to my attention by alert reader novelwriter65. It’s from author John Green‘s trip to the American Library Association annual conference (and if you know librarians Marisa and Robin, ask if they got to see him!).
If you <3 John Green, either before or after watching this video, check out some of his books from the library!
Okay, so I’m a little late in writing about this, but we’re kicking back and enjoying spring break here at WPL. We’ve had a series of movie showings, from Where the Wild Things Are to Star Wars: The Clone Wars (which I liked more than I expected to, thanks to the baby Hutt-ling).
And be sure to join us tomorrow for our final presentation, a large-screen showing of the fresh-to-DVD hit “The Blind Side,” starring Sandra Bullock.
Check out our homemade video promo for the %2009 Summer Reading Program, made for you with love by the WPL Youth Librarians! Got a hankering to make your own?

You’ll have a chance to register for summer reading, get a sign-up prize, work on some cool activities (including appearing in your own “Boogie Heads” video) and find out about our “Starring You! Movie Maker” workshops and movie showing night. You won’t want to miss it! See you on June 11th!
I just finished reading Skeleton Creek, a new book with a creepy twist! Ryan is stuck in his room with a broken leg after a mysterious accident with his best friend Sarah. He fell when they were investigating a dredge, an old, abandoned machine in the woods of their hometown, Skeleton Creek. Now Ryan and Sarah have been forbidden by their parents to contact each other, but Sarah still manages to email Ryan some password-protected videos about what else she is discovering about the dredge. Ryan notes the passwords in his journal, and you, the reader, can go online to view Sarah’s videos. Be warned — some of them are quite spooky, and the ending will leave you hanging on desperately for the next book in the series!
Take a look at the book trailer:
Do you remember reading one of the most famous picture books, Where the Wild Things Are, when you were little? I do!! I’m super-excited to see this trailer for the upcoming live-action movie. I didn’t think it was possible to make a full-length movie from such a simple picture book, but this looks too cool to miss:
