This Summer PBS is presenting an 8-part series celebrating books and reading. This exciting TV event will not only look at the art of writing and how it affects us as readers, but will also endeavor to determine America’s favorite book!
The 90th Academy Awards are this weekend which means we will soon discover which movie the film industry felt was the best released in theaters in 2017. I have watched all 9 of them to see which were my favorites and have put them into a ranked list for you.
Over the last 2 days we’ve shown you the year’s most circulated books and movies, but there’s much more to our collection. And so we are happy to present the year’s most checked out music, video games, and graphic novels.
As you might imagine, working in a library means we come across a lot of interesting materials. Great books, movies, TV shows, albums and video games are always crossing our circulation desk; and we do our best to try and experience as many of them as we can. People are always asking us what our favorites are, so we polled the library staff to see what really caught their eyes (and ears) this year.
Admit it. You’ve been addicted to a mobile game at least once. Angry Birds, Words with Friends, Candy Crush Saga, Farmville, and countless other games have all captured our attention at various times, and probably for longer than we’d care to admit. While they were certainly all fun diversions, we probably would have felt a lot better about playing them if they also helped to accomplish something.
