Guitar Hero 3 Now Playing @ Your Library

The library purchased Guitar Hero 3 and one wireless guitar! Thanks Ted!

We rocked out, starting today, and we will do it again Friday, March 7th, starting around 3:30 p.m. and continuing until about 5:45 p.m.

By the way, if you happen to know Joyce Neese, please tell her thank you. Joyce and her husband Mike generously donated snacks and drinks for our last SingStar/Guitar Hero competition. Joyce helps the library out in a thousand ways, so give her a big hug.

Your librarian purchased SingStar Amped for you, and we're having fun with that, too.

Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr

Originally planned as a trilogy, Christopher Paolini's Inheritance Cycle has now become a quartet.

Christopher's announced a release date for the third book, Brisingr, and he's released the cover art.

Twilight - THE MOVIE

The wait is over. At 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, August 2, 2008, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers will release the most anticipated novel of the year -- Breaking Dawn -- the fourth and final book in Stephenie Meyer's #1 international bestselling Twilight Saga.

The countdown to Breaking Dawn will begin on Saturday, May 31, 2008 with the publication of the Eclipse Special Edition. This deluxe hardcover version of the third book in the series not only includes the cover art for Breaking Dawn, but also the first chapter—both of which will be revealed to the public for the first time.

"Stephenie Meyer has written a dazzling grand finale to an epic love story," commented Tingley.

Meyer's fans will have plenty to keep them occupied until the release of the Eclipse Special Edition and Breaking Dawn. On May 6, 2008, Little, Brown and Company will release The Host, Meyer's highly-anticipated debut novel for adults. Little, Brown and Company has announced a 500,000 copy first-printing and Meyer will embark on a 10-city author tour for The Host.

Meyer's amazing year will be capped off by a major motion picture event. Summit Entertainment will bring Twilight to the big screen, directed by Catherine Hardwicke ("Thirteen," "Lords of Dogtown") and starring Kristen Stewart ("Into The Wild") and Robert Pattinson ("Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire"). It will be released nationwide on December 12, 2008.

In just two years, Stephenie Meyer has become a worldwide publishing phenomenon. Twilight was one of 2005's most talked about novels and translation rights have been sold in 33 countries. There are over 5.5 million copies of the Twilight Saga in-print worldwide.

Maggie says: I know a lady right here in New Carlisle whose granddaughter is working on the Twilight movie! I will keep you posted as I hear news from her.

Playstation 2 Gaming Mania

I love technology and would happily make my home inside any BestBuy store that would have me. On my last trip to BestBuy, I bought a Playstation 2 for YOU to use. I know you want Guitar Hero and DDR, but so far your librarian can only afford SingStar... We've had two four-hour long SingStar marathons, and they were amazingly fun. I loved my off-pitch, tuneless turn at the microphone, in which I howled my way through a Franz Ferdinand song. We're going to have more singing competitions: watch this blog for days and times.
