Before you watch the first episode of The 100 on the CW, check out the book! After the Earth suffers extreme radiation poisoning, humans colonize the moon. A century passes before the colonists decide it’s time to go back and try to live on Earth again. They send 100 teenage criminals on a mission to Earth to find out what they’ll face if they re-colonize. What will they find on Earth? Will the 100 survive? Find out in The 100 by Kass Morgan. It’s got action, adventure, and a little romance. Read it, watch it, compare it. Will TV make the book better or worse? You be the judge!

Did you know the library can borrow books from other libraries and have them sent here for you? It’s called interlibrary loan, and it’s a great way to get the books you want if we don’t have them. You can always use your Winfield library card at other public libraries, too. Or, you could always comment me here to let me know what books you think we should buy!
This year we’ll have a science and technology theme, “Spark a Reaction,” but your idea doesn’t have to be science-themed to get our attention. Only about half the programs go with the theme, the other half can be whatever we want. I’m hoping to have some technology programs, you know I always like to have a cooking program, and we’ve got a nail art event planned, too. I have a few things up my sleeve, but if you’ve got an idea, comment me!
If you’re writing a paper about a controversial issue like global warming, gun control, or human cloning, you’ve got to check out SIRS!
