Fold Paper, Listen to Audiobooks, You Will

Today is Star Wars Day! So, grab a Star Wars themed book. We’ve got a bunch. The Shakespeare 20160504_092700editions. Novels of the movies. Jedi Academy. But I do love the Origami Yoda series (as evidenced by the poster in front of the circulation desk).

Want to make your own origami figures for Star Wars day? Then grab Art2-D2’s Guide to Folding and Doodling. Learn to draw speedy versions of your favorite Star Wars characters (pre-The Force Awakens). Or make your own origami cast (although you may need the novels to get origami instructions for all the characters). If you make any, be sure to stop by and show us!

Another exciting thing about today…it’s Sync ’16 Eve! Sync is the program that offers free audiobook download all summer long. Two books each week based on a theme. Each yeaSYNCHEAD-150x150r they add more titles and start the program earlier. This year…it starts tomorrow. The first two books are The Great Tennessee Monkey Trail and Vivian Apple at the End of the World. Each Thursday two new books will go up on the site. Once downloaded, they’re yours to keep. So take advantage. There are some ah-maze-ing books this summer. You can see the whole list here. Or grab a flyer from the library or at Mrs. Neft’s desk.


New Book Wednesday – Sequels!

For this week’s new book selection, we’ve got the continuing story of…


1) Rot & Ruin. Jonathan Mayberry’s epic zombie tale continues in Flesh & Bone (book 3).

2) The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. Tom Angleberger (which is just such a fun name) continues the story of our fortunetelling folded paper with book 5 in the series, Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue, and book 6, Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus.

3) William Shakespeare’s Star Wars. Ian Doescher is back with the “first” episode of the iambic pentameter version tale from a time long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away, William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace. (These only just arrived, so I haven’t read any yet, but I am curious to see how Jar Jar Binks translates to iambic pentameter.)
