Teens, March is your month at the Library. We’re celebrating Teen Tech Week all month with events at your branch. What will you do?

MuVChat: Ever watched a movie and wanted to comment on it LIVE with your friends? Kind of like Imgur, Tumblr and YouTube all rolled up in one? Then you have got to try out MuVChat . Visit your local branch and watch a movie with friends and strangers. When you want to comment on what you see on the screen, just send a text to a number that we’ll hand out. Then it appears on the screen!

The Hobbit

Remember in The Lord of the Rings, where Frodo had to take the One Ring of Power and pitch it into a volcano in Mordor? How did that Ring start in the Shire anyway? That story is called The Hobbit and comes out this Friday, December 14th.

This year’s movie is actually the first of three. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey takes Bilbo Baggins (the Hobbit) from his home in the Shire all the way to the Misty Mountains where he meets an interesting fellow named Gollum. Gollum, you may remember, was the weird looking character in the Lord of the Rings movies who went around talking about “my precious” all of the time. The next movies will deal with Smaug the dragon and the War of the Five Armies.

The Hobbit
The book, The Hobbit, is the prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Originally published in 1937, this book has never gone out of print. We’ve ordered extra copies at the library just for the movie. Click on the cover to the right and request a copy to pick up at your favorite branch–or go to your favorite branch and ask if a paperback is available.

*And for those Trekkies out there, go see The Hobbit at an IMAX location. You’ll be treated to the first nine minutes of Star Trek Into Darkness. Hobbits and Vulcans in the same night. Niiiiiiice.

Happy “Hunger Games” Texting!

As part of our Teen Read Week celebrations, join us at the library for a special movie screening of “The Hunger Games” featuring MuVChat! Bring your cell phone and text along to the movie. Answer trivia questions or post snarky comments…YOU are the commentator!
