March is Women's History Month and the Winter Olympics just ended about a week ago. And there were some phenomenal women who participated in the Olympic events. Lindsey Vonn is one the superstars of the Olympics. And did anyone stay up late to watch U.S. Women's Hockey Team win the gold?!
Every year a teen book is turned into a movie. This year has seen a lot of great young adult books made into movies, including The 5th Wave and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. 2017 will be no exception to the rule. Many great novels are set to be released as movies but there is still time to read!
THE BEST NEWS. Lumberjanes – everyone's favorite group from everyone's favorite Camp for Hardcore Lady types – is getting the ol' Hollywood Treatment. THEY'RE MAKING A LIVE-ACTION MOVIE ADAPTATION! A director has been found – up and coming director and apparent Hardcore Lady Type, Emily Carmichael, – and I'm fairly certain this news is/will be breaking the internet.
Yeehaa! We're making a movie! Join ideaLAB and EPIC for a Wild West Murder Mystery, August 5 through 7 from 3-6 pm! We'll write, shoot, and edit a mini movie in 3 days. We'll screen the movie (world premiere!) at the ideaLAB Afterhours Party August 7 from 6-8 pm. Then we'll eat pizza and play games in the abandoned library. Free and open to all teens, ages 12-19.
ARE YOU READY FOR THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE*?
No? That is just fine. We've got a whole month of pretty awesomeness to prepare! Here's the plan:
Week One: Friday, October 3, 3-6 p.m.: Spooky Eyes. We're going to creep you out w/ some glowing eyes! Make some for keeps (spooky front porch? spooky locker?), and some to decorate the library.
Teens! Ages 12-19 Join ideaLAB for 3 days of Kung Fu movie making awesomeness. We will learn, plan, shoot, edit, and watch your very own thirty second Kung Fu masterpieces. Learn about storyboarding, cinematography, sound editing, and kicking butt (though not for realsies). There's something for everyone behind or in front of the camera, just come on down to ideaLAB Thursday-Saturday, February 27th and 28th 4-6, and March 1st 11-4.
Getting stoked? Can't wait? Ask a librarian to help you find some Kung Fu classics to check out like these titles below!
Summer is a time for playing outside, relaxing, and watching the latest summer blockbuster at your local cinema.
