So, what’s next here at the library? Well, before we go traipsing into the future, let’s ponder for a moment. Anything we could do differently in our summer reading contest for next year? Please leave your respectful and much-appreciated comments here in the blog, or you can email me here firstname.lastname@example.orgWe’re showing some fun films at our Teen Flix events in August, including _The Last Song_ and _Percy Jackson and the Olympians_. Check out calendar link or check back here for dates and times. Also, get ready for the Hunger Games Party to celebrate the release of the third book in the trilogy—Mockingjay. I must admit, I’m chomping at the bit for this one. Are you ready?

Join us for the screening of “The Vampire’s Assistant” based on the Cirque du Freak novels by Darren Shan in the Teen’scape at 6:30 pm. This is a pretty creepy movie and I’ve read it described like “The Lost Boys” crossed with “The Goonies.” Sounds good!
