Sometimes I feel the need for a change of scene. I'd like a Christmas flick with some irreverence, with maybe a peek around the dark side of the tree. And throw in a few explosions too, please.

If the sugarplums have gotten too sweet for you and you're looking for a holiday movie served with a side of bah humbug, this is the list for you.
What's your favorite offbeat holiday movie?

Games at the Library

Did you know that we have video games at the library? Games of all kinds for kids abound on the 2nd floor but we also carry games for teens and adults. You can find them on the 1st floor near the Quick Pick DVDs and Blu-rays. Hot items go fast so if you don't see what you're looking for, place a hold on it so you can get it when it comes back in.
New Video Games for Teens and Adults
Place a hold on new video games for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, Wii, and 3DS. Check out more games on the first floor.

If you know of an E for Everyone, E+10, or Teen rated game you think we should own, suggest it to us. We'd love to hear from you!
