The library received 141 new books on Friday ($2748.19 in case you're wondering). Most of them were history and geography books to help update our aging collection, but we did get a few interesting ones! Of note are a few new graphic novels including Cirque du Freak, Daniel X, and Tsubasa. We have several series continuations, including Ranger's Apprentice, Vampire Kisses, and the Frog Princess. Plus the latest books from James Patterson, Sarah Dessen, Mike Lupica and more! Check out the book covers of our new books on the left, and click on one for more information. Come check out a book!

From what I heard around the library today many of you went to see Percy Jackson and the Olympians: the Lightning Thief over the weekend (What? You weren't watching the Olympics?). Many of you liked it, but more of you said it was nothing like the book, and were quite disappointed. What do you think? Did you like the movie? Was the fact that it was so different than the book ruin it for you? If you haven't read the book, did it make you want to start? Leave your opinion here! Take our poll on the left here!
