BCjacket.pngFebruary 14, Valentine's Day, is also opening day for a new film Beautiful Creatures.  Based on a book written for Young Adults by Kami Garcia, Beautiful Creatures tells the story of a Lena, a girl who moves to South Carolina with her family.  Lena's family are "Casters" who are all endowed with witch-like powers. On her upcoming sixteenth birthday, Lena will learn if she will become a creature of the darkness or a creature of the light.  Feeling like an outsider in a new town, Lena falls in love with a boy named Ethan, with whom she shares a psychic connection that spans back to the Civil War.  If you're a fan of Twilight or supernatural romance, be sure to  check out this award winning title and of course, see the film. View the trailer below.

My Pictures (Jan2013) 047.jpgYep, it's that time of year again.  This February is Black History Month, where important events and people in the African American world are celebrated and acknowledged. 

As you see from the picture above, we've put up a display in the second floor Teen Central area highlighting books by and about African Americans.  There are titles by such authors as Coe Booth, Angela Johnson and Walter Dean Myers, as well as books about Maya Angelou, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. 

Here and on our Facebook and Twitter pages, we'll be posting links to various  BHM-related sites, like these ones:

African American History Month

Enchanted Learning

The History Channel  

Smithsonian Education

More links will be coming.  Watch for them.  And let us know what you'd like us to highlight in our display.
