We have less than a month until Christmas, but am I finishing my shopping? (Have I even started my shopping?) Am I baking cookies and making gifts? Am I getting my picture taken with Santa and mailing cards? NOPE! I’m glued to the TV watching all those inspiring, tear-jerking Christmas movies.
It's the second Tuesday of the month which means...ANIME MOVIE NIGHT at the Parkville Branch. Tonight, the teens and I are watching several Christmas episodes of different anime shows, and we decided to write a blog together. So here are some of our top 5 lists. Enjoy!
If you frequent the DVD shelves, you may have noticed that some of our newer titles have "RENTAL" written on the artwork and on the DVD itself. You may think to yourself, "Rental, don’t we check-out at the library?" And the answer is YES!

It’s that time of year again...time for the annual Sundance Film Festival. Sundance is the largest independent film festival in the U.S., and it runs from January 19th to the 29th in Park City, Utah. Last year, more than 45,000 people attended. In 2011, there were over 3,800 film submissions. The festival began in 1978 and has changed names a few times.
Many of us here at the Riverside Branch are avid followers of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series. I, along with multitudes of others in the MCPL system, eagerly await the newest book in the series to read up on the latest exploits of Stephanie, Lulu, and Grandma Mazur.
Chances are, you are either sighing or groaning at the thought of Valentine's Day. What to do or not to do. What to get or not get. Where to go or how to avoid going out.
Whatever your feelings about Valentine's Day, chances are that at one point in your life, you were smitten. If not in a relationship, you probably at least had a special movie or song that spoke to you.
