In case you were wondering, librarians also freak out when our favorite books are made into movies. We jump up and down; we scream, and then maybe we worry over whether they will live up to our expectations. We churn with anticipation. We go and see them; we buy them for our collections of course; and we tell you all about what we think. We even have programs to share our excitement with you!
We’ve shared Twilight, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, and Perks of Being a Wallflower events, and now we are proud to add The Hobbit to this list.
On December 13th, from 8:30-10:30 PM we will hold a special, after hours event celebrating all things Middle-earth. We hope you will drop by and celebrate with us before you hit the midnight release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Here are some of the fun activities you can expect:
- Come dressed as your favorite character — prizes awarded for best costume
- Compete in Tolkien Trivia
- Make Hobbit Slippers
- Play the Lord of the Ring Toss
- Create Dwarvish Bookmarks
- Ham it up in the Wilderland Photobooth
- Try your hand at Eye of Sauron Treat Decorating
We hope to see you there!
