It’s Movie Night with Jingles the Elf

0

 

After collecting several great Romance books to send back to his lady elf friends at the North Pole, Jingles the Elf decided to wander over to our Movie section.  He could not believe his eyes at all of the titles we have here at the Firestone Park Library!  We showed Jingles our Children’s movie collection as well, and we told him that movies are some of our most popular items to check out.  Jingles decided to send a text message right then to Santa Claus, that he had to get to our library to check out a ton of movies for the Elves’ next Movie Night!  We will surely be ready for that special visit!

Please feel free to check out our fantastic movie selection at our library.  Enjoy!

An Afternoon of Christmas Stories – December 20th, 2014

 

A group of local actors visited with us at the Firestone Park Branch Library on the Saturday before Christmas to read classic Christmas stories.  Everyone enjoyed the gift of reading as they sipped on hot chocolate and munched on cookies.

Jingles loves a good love story…

0

We asked Jingles the Elf where he would like to go next on his tour of the Firestone Park Library, and he replied that while it wasn’t his favorite section, he would like to see our collection of Romance books.  It seems, upon further questioning, that Jingles has several lady elf friends, that wanted new titles to read during the long, cold winter.  We told Jingles to send his friends over to our branch to pick up some hot titles!

Please feel free to visit our branch library to stock up on Romances that will keep you warm all winter long!  Enjoy!

Watch out, Jingles, it’s the Mystery Section!

0

 

After Jingles the Elf ate his tasty lunch, he decided to continue his tour of the Firestone Park Library, picking up the trail in our Mystery section.  This is one of our larger collections, with many best-selling authors and titles.  Jingles mentioned that he was on the lookout for ideas to use for a mystery party with the other Elves after he gets back to the North Pole.   Jingles also confided to the library staff that the Big Guy himself, Santa Claus, was quite fond of Christmas themed mysteries!

 

Please feel free to come visit our branch and check out our great selection of mysteries!  Enjoy!

Jingles the Elf is getting hungry

0

 

About midway through his tour of the Firestone Park Library, Jingles the Elf announced to all of us that he was getting quite hungry.  After all, learning so much about what the library has to offer is a lot of work for a small elf!  We showed Jingles where our large cookbook collection was located, and he browsed through several.  He liked the Stir-Fry cookbook so much, we had to call in an order for Chinese food for lunch!

 

We have cookbooks for all kinds of great recipes, from main dishes to desserts.  Please come and visit our branch to satisfy your appetite for good reads (and eats!).  Enjoy!

Friends,
 
In an effort to help people connect with the great neighborhoods in our city, I am working with a team of volunteers to organize neighborhood tours in Akron.  So far, we have hosted small tours inKenmoreNorth Hill and Crestland Park.  Each one has given me a new perspective and optimism on the potential of places so close to home.
 
On December 20th, our group will be hosting an organized walking tour of Firestone Park from noon to 2:00pm.  The tour starts at the Firestone Park Community Center (1480 Girand St., Akron, OH 44301) and will end close to the start.  Dress warm!
 
We plan to cap the tour at 50 and I anticipate it will fill up in the next couple days.  If you are interested, please RSVP at the following link:
 
 
Hope to see you then if not before.  Feel free to forward this email.
 
Thank you.

Jingles and the Graphic Novels, oh my!

0

 

Jingles the Elf turned the corner, so to speak, and found our large collection of Manga and Graphic Novels in the Teen area.  He must have stood there and stared for a good thirty seconds, trying to take it all in!  Jingles grabbed a few titles to look through.  He seemed to favor the Marvel Comics books.

This is a popular spot for our local teens to hang out in, with several tables and chairs available for doing homework, reading, or just chatting (quietly!).  We also have a great selection of Classic Books and companion study guides in this area, perfect for school projects.

Please feel free to come in and browse our great selection of titles!  Enjoy!
