With the Golden Globe awards finished for another year and the Oscar nominees just announced, there are probably quite a few movies you want to see. Have you checked our catalog to see if we have them? Our movies are behind the Circulation desk and we have tons of great DVDs and Blu-Rays to select from!
If you’d like to read the movie– er, we mean the book that came out before the movie, the odds are high we have that too. There’s also the bonus that everything you read counts towards your Winter Reading Log! Sign up for Winter Reading now and get all the details on the login screen, which you can access from the banner on our homepage. Our theme is books made into movies, so why not read the book and watch the movie? We have plenty of lists and ideas for you, and there are more recommendations on the Winter Reading sign up page.
Don’t know where to start? We offer a variety of reading recommendations:
- Staff Pick Bookmarks (located at the Circulation and Reference desks) These change frequently and are always stocked
- Staff Pick of the Week : blog post and added to our Facebook album (one for 2014 and one for 2015)
- We’re encouraging everyone (staff included) to participate in a reading challenge. This year, we picked Book Riot’s Read Harder Challenge. We made flyers for it that you can find at Circulation and Reference. This challenge has a support group on Goodreads.com
Winter is almost over and cabin fever is at it’s peak. The weather can’t decide what it’s doing, so while you’re stuck inside for the umpteenth day in a row, why wouldn’t you escape through a book? Join National Reading Month and read an old favorite or try something new.
Don’t forget to log your Winter Reading Program which ends March 20. You win a prize every 5 books (up to 15) and get entered into a drawing for a Barnes and Noble gift card. You’re already reading, so take advantage! You can sign up through our homepage: http://franklintwp.org/
