Books On Film | Child 44

The film adaptation of Tom Rob Smith's first book Child 44 will be released this weekend. The movie adaptation stars Tom Hardy as the main character Leo Demidov.
In the years following World War II, Joseph Stalin establishes great power and control over the Russian people; citizens are deceitfully told that their country is free from crime and offenders. However, a serial killer targeting children is, in fact, on the loose. And now, Leo Demidov, a decorated soldier, must locate this murderer while keeping his capture a secret.

Just life| National Library Week

April 12-18 2015 is National Library Week. This year's theme is " Unlimited Possibilities".  

National Library Week is the time to celebrate our libraries and our librarians and to promote literacy in our community.

Picture from ALA website

National Library Week was established in 1958.

Here is little bit of history about National Library Week from the ALA website:

"In the mid 1950's, research showed that Americans were spending less on books and more on radios, televisions, and musical instruments. Concerned that Americans were reading less, the ALA and the American Book Publishers formed a nonprofit citizens organization called the National Book Committee in 1954. The committee's goals were ambitious. They ranged from encouraging people to read in their increasing leisure time to improving incomes and health and developing strong and happy family life."

National Library Week is the perfect time to visit your local library, to get a library card, or to check out interesting books for free or enjoy fantastic and free library programs.

Your library is waiting for you.
