We ♥ the Eighties!

Leggings, New Kids on the Block, flannel shirts and punk rock—everything is coming back, so why not try these books published in the Eighties. Times may change, but people and their problems don’t.

Also, browse one of the internet’s best Eighties Movie websites, “80s Movies Rewind” http://www.fast-rewind.com/.  Find a movie you want to see?  Chances are that if it’s on DVD the library has it!  Discover great films like “Lucas”, “Night of the Comet”, “Real Genius” “Top Secret!” and many more.

And, don’t forget your soundtrack.  Everyone’s iPod needs great Eighties tunes.  Check out the charts from the Eighties at http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/charts/yearend_chart_index.jsp, and have a look at some titles from the library catalog.
