I was just looking at E.Lockhart’s blog and noticed that she has an imix of the songs from her book, Dramarama. http://www.theboyfriendlist.com/e_lockhart_blog/

She writes,

“Listen before you read Dramarama to make sure you get every little musical reference. Listen afterwards to get a sense of Sadye and Demi’s musical world. In any case, these are some of my favorite showtunes of all time. Songs from Rent, Wicked, Guys & Dolls, Cabaret, Chicago, Bye Bye Birdie, Oliver!, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Jersey Boys, Grease, Fame, Sweet Charity, Little Shop of Horrors, and more. “

How awesome is that?

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

I know that all you Twilight junkies will be happy to hear that we’ve added extra copies of Twilight and Breaking Dawn to our Bestseller Express collection. In other words, you’ll get your hands on the books a lot faster!

The way the Bestseller Express collection works is if you see a hot, new title on the display at the front of the Library, you can help yourself! We’ve ordered extra copies of our most popular titles, which can be borrowed for a week, and are available without placing a hold.
