Did you like the Hunger Games?

Read Catching Fire? Can't wait for Mockingjay? To "tide" you over, try Paolo Bacigalupi's Ship Breaker, a similar science fiction story about our dismal future. And if you like, get your name on the list to borrow Mockingjay, whose release date is August 24. Call the library at 802-885-3108 or email yaloft@gmail.com.

Camp Half-Blood

Do you feel the need for adventure? Do strange things keep happening to you? Is your math teacher a monster? (No, I mean for REAL!) Then come to Camp Half-Blood Tuesday, July 13 at 1:00 in the YA section of the library and explore the world of Percy Jackson and the Olympians! Go on a quest for the lightning bolt, drink nectar (tastes like chocolate chip cookies), and sample ambrosia (not too much, or you'll burst into flames). See you!!
