 Those of you who have been coming to TAG know that we are trying to plan a book to movie activity for TEEN TECH WEEK.  Marshall Library is also getting training to set up MAKERSPACE at the library and will be planning programs that involve Arduinos, e-textiles, robotics and 3D printing throughout this next year.....and beyond.
Which book/movie would you and your friends  be most likely to read and attend:
The Giver by Lois Lowry  (Showing this movie will cost the library an additional $110.00 beyond our yearly movie license)
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card  (Showing this movie is no extra cost beyond our yearly license)
TEEN TECH WEEK is officially March 8-14, but we can celebrate it with programming any time in March.
What day of the week would be best to show a movie and compare it the book?


Please respond ASAP by commenting to this BLOG, or to

See YA @ your Library!  Kath Ann
