If you follow us on Instagram, you’ll know that last week, we posted photos with plastic dinosaurs, yarn, and yes…books. Did you know that we often post things on Instagram regarding new books, fun programs, or just interesting things that come into the library…and we don’t post these things anywhere else? If you’re not following us, you’re missing out.
Drop by to see what’s going on with us this week. We’ve got our photos ready!
If you’ve been following YouTubers galore, you’ve probably seen a lot of the “100…” list. (100 layers of lipstick, 100 t-shirts, 100 books on my bedside table). Okay, I made that last one up, but it seems like everyone is doing “100” of something, if only to see what it looks like.
But when I came across this lifehack list, the 100 days to accomplish something…anything…seemed like a really good way to participate. Try one of the fun things like decluttering your home over 100 days (make a list and tackle only one at a time), or saving for 100 days, or planning your day the night before….for 100 days. All of THESE things are meant to either make your life easier, or better, something which 100 layers of lipstick certainly won’t. Which ones will you try?
If you’ve been enjoying the library this summer by participating in reading programs or activities, we’d love to hear from you! Take a few minutes to drop by the library to fill out a quick survey, or do it right now by clicking on this link! It’s easy, and fun.
Tell us how we did!
October is less than three months away, and that means we don’t have to wait long for the release of the film, THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, based on the best-selling book by Paula Hawkins. If you loved the book, or loved GONE GIRL, this movie adaptation is bound to draw people into the theatres. Emily Blunt plays the starring role, and I can’t wait to love/hate her.
The newest trailer for the film was just released. What do you think? Will you be going to this movie?
Because we know you’re all doing it, the Carleton Place Public Library is a Pokemon Go Pokestop! Make sure you take a good walk through and around the library and vicinity to collect everything!
Don’t forget to tell us what you found. We’ve had some interesting things turning up!
Don’t forget, you still have time to get tickets at the library for tomorrow’s show at the Carleton Place Town Hall Auditorium for RYNESTONE. Tomorrow, you’ll have to spend $4 each at the door, so get here before 8pm!
THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS by M.R. Carey is not your average zombie novel. And now it’s being made into a movie that has reviewers all atwitter! While we often go through cycles of popularity (vampires, vikings, superpowers, fight to the death games), zombies is the latest genre to be written and viewed to almost a breaking point. THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS is breaking all of the rules, however, and causing people to say this movie/book will change everything.
Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her “our little genius.”
Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don’t like her. She jokes that she won’t bite, but they don’t laugh.
The Girl With All the Gifts is a groundbreaking thriller, emotionally charged and gripping from beginning to end.
You can see the official trailer here to get a sense for the book.
What do you think? Is the zombie genre “dead”? (See how I did that?)
