Rain, Rain, Go AWAY...

...we had to reschedule Tie Dye for another day!


Of course it is raining today!  But fear not!  We do have a back up date in case this happened, so if you were already signed up, hold on to those white t-shirts, bags and pillow cases!

So, if this is the first you are hearing about a tie dye program at the Library, FEAR NOT!  There are still spaces if you want to sign up for next Monday!  Looks like Mother Nature gave you another shot at making some awesome tie dye!

FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is coming to RPLD!!

Saturday, May 2
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is back!!

We've got a ton of stuff planned for this year's Free Comic Book Day, starting with, of course, FREE COMICS TO GIVE AWAY!!!  We have comics for all ages, so bring your friends, bring your siblings, you can even bring your parents!

Plus, we will be screening an
ALL DAY MARVEL MOVIE MARATHON
in the Teen Area starting at 9:30 am
This is to celebrate the release of the new Avengers movie, Age of Ultron, which is released in theaters on Friday, May 1.  So if you aren't going to be able to make the opening night release, stop by the Library to catch up on your favorite Marvel movies!
 
 Do you have younger brothers and sisters??  No problem!  We've got something to keep them busy too!  Starting at 1pm, there will be a drop in story time for ages 2-9, featuring all sorts of fun stories about super heroes, and there is even a super hero craft for the little ones!

In between movies (or if you just need a movie break) we will be having two artists stop by the Library to show us some cool stuff, like how to create your very own comic from regular printer paper, and local artist Serena Guerra will be doing some quick drawing demo's to get you on your way to becoming the next Stan Lee!!!  (if you don't know who Stan Lee is, go look him up RIGHT NOW...or CLICK HERE)

Also, in case you forgot, or you didn't know, the Library has a TON of graphic novels and comics, in the Youth Services collection, the Teen Area (Graphic Novels, Manga, & Anime!), and even in the Adult Collection!  So while you are picking up your FREE COMIC BOOKS, make sure to check out what we have on our shelves.

So, now you know!  And if you have fun, LET US KNOW!!  YAY COMICS!!

How do you deal with the Rising Cost of College??


We all love money, right??  But I'm betting the number one problem most of us have is NOT HAVING enough money!  Not enough to buy a car (or put gas in it!), not enough to go shopping and buy that new pair of shoes, not enough to get the next best video game that is coming out, and especially not enough to cover the cost of going to college!!

But wait!

What if I told you the Roselle Public Library was having a program specifically for YOU to learn more about the rising cost of college and what YOU can do to make sure you can afford to go??  Would you jump up and down with joy?  Would you cry tears of relief?

Well don't worry, all you really have to do is sign up, show up, and learn all about it!

THURSDAY, APRIL 23
7-8 PM

Thomas J. Jaworski of Quest College Consulting is back, and he will share his expertise & insights on the rising cost of college.  In this presentation he will help with:
  • how to break down the cost of college
  • understanding the financial aid/scholarship aspect of the college search process
  • providing tips on how to maximize your dollar for college
This program, designed for both parents and students, is interactive so please bring your smart device (phone or tablet).

So no more excuses!  Bring a parent, bring a friend, and don't forget to bring your smart phone!

Celebrate National Library Week!


It's that time of year again!  Time to celebrate your local Library and everything that it can do for you!

First, there are the AWESOME Teen programs that we are always hosting, from past programs like arm knitting and making magnets, to future programs like afternoon movie programs and tie-dye (coming this summer!), there is always something fun going on at the Library!

Second, did you know you can get FREE MUSIC at the Library??  We have this totally sweet online service called FREEGAL, and by using your Library card number and PIN, you have access to over 8 million songs.  Every week you can download 5 songs TO KEEP, FOREVER, FOR FREE!!  Did I mention this is free? :)  Like most cool things these days, you can access this through the Freegal app, or you can click on the link below to check it out on your computer


Third, Freegal is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to online services the Library provides for you.  There is eMediaLibrary, where you can download eBooks and eAudiobooks (yes, there's an app for that!).  IF you are into downloadable books and audiobooks, you might also want to check out eReadIllinois too!  You may be familiar with Tutor.com, providing access to free, live homework help.  Or how about Mango Languages if you need some help with learning another language!  The list goes on and on, but CLICK HERE to check it out for yourself.


Finally, during National Library Week, there will be some special activities throughout the week, including a Musical Sunday kick off to celebrate all the wonderful volunteers the Library has, and a "find the hidden gems" scavenger hunt.  So make sure to check out all the fantastic offerings at your Library today!

HAPPY NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK EVERYONE!!
