Are you ready for summer?

Get ready to "UNMASK" the heroes!

Summer Library Programs are just around the corner. There are contemporary heroes - the heroes of today, historic heroes, your personal heroes, and fictional or fantasy heroes - those that make you think of "leaping over tall buildings"!

Christopher Reeve, who played a superhero (tights, and all), said, "A hero is an ordinary individual, who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles." Reeve not only played a superhero in film, but he was also a contemporary hero to many. You can read about his tragedy, courage, and hope in books and see him (and others playing the part) leaping and flying in TV and film.

Maybe you could create your own superhero this summer. Try Printable Comic Strip Templates and create your own hero, a sidekick, and a villain or two. Bring it to the library or send it to teen@cmrls.lib.ms.us and we will post it here!

Summer Library Programs begin June 1 and run through July 11. Register for summer fun at your library!

Video games this summer?

Are video games on your "to do" list this summer?

If so, check out the games at the library! Click here for a list of the video games that can be checked out from your library. With your CMRLS Library Card you may check out 2 video games at a time for one week. Click here for our hand picked collection of video game history, cheat codes, and walkthroughs. You could even set up a tournament with your friends and battle a new game each week! Formats include Nintendo Wii/DS/3DS, Xbox/Xbox360, PlayStation 3.

Using your Library Card and PIN you can sit at home and find the video game you want to play, click the "Place Hold" button and fill in your CMRLS Library Card barcode number and your PIN; choose the Library you want to pick up the game...and that's it. You'll get a call to pick up the game and you are on your way!

Want to read something like your favorite video game? Talk to your Library staff, tell them about the games you like and let them find you books that you might enjoy.

There is no charge to check out video games, however there is a fine for returning them late, so remember to return them!

FLORENCE: Sushi Candy for YA

Sushi Candy Beneath the Surface!

Umm! Umm! Good! 
Never thought I'd say that about sushi of any kind, but this is something all together different! 
Just take a look at what the YA came  up with. 
WARNING: grab a napkin as drooling may occure!

As the old saying goes "The proof is in the pudding."
Well, in our case it's in the candy sushi!


Even the little brothers that came had fun!

From the smiles and no leftovers,
 I'd say it was great!
Next time you can join the fun, too!
