I am here to lay some truth on you about how a tired parent reads to her child at the end of a long day. Sometimes when your day is 8 hours of work, meal prep x 3, drinking 64 ounces of water, and attempting those recommended 10,000 steps, you have nothing left in you except lots of water. The library has two library digital resources, Hoopla Digital and BookFlix, that will help you reclaim your time and supplement your bedtime ritual with an entertaining story.

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, granting that no one could be denied the right to vote because of their sex. Could women vote before the 19th amendment? Yes, but not in every state.  Could all women in America vote after the 19th amendment? No, immigrants, Puerto Ricans, and women of color could still be denied the right to vote.  The movement to give all women the right began a lifetime before it was ratified in 1920 and continued to go on for decades still. This history and the stories of the men and women who fought to bring us this right are well documented in our collection.

10 Movies Available on Hoopla:

Nicolas Cage-O-Rama-A-Thon

 

As I have been going through Hoopla’s movie library, the one constant I keep seeing is Nicolas Cage’s face on movie after movie, either in close-up or with an explosion behind him, sometimes both. It made me wonder, “Is there an all Nicolas Cage 10 movie list available on Hoopla?” Yes, my friends. Yes, there is.

Chelsea Quinn Yarbro- An amazingly prolific author, Yarbro began with the first of the Charles Spotted mystery series, Ogilvie, Tallant & Moon in 1976. She has written numerous series including historical mystery/ghost (Chesterton Holte, Gentleman Haunt series), western (Jason Russell series), historical horror (The Saint-Germain Cycle), fantasy (book 2 in the Merchant Prince series) science-fiction (book four in the Crisis of Empire series) and dozens of novels and short stories, written under her own and various pen names. In 2009 she won the Bram Stoker Award for Lifetime Achievement. For me, I became acquainted with Yarbro’s work with her 1980 novelization for the 1981 zombie thriller Dead & Buried.
