December Recap

The end of the year is always a good time to look back and reflect on all the challenges you faced, goals you accomplished, and excellent blog posts you read! It’s been an eventful year for us here at Eleventh Stack. We welcomed two new bloggers, Scott M. and Whitney, and said farewell to long-time writer Scott P. as he embarks on a new adventure as Pittsburgh fireman.

Great things have also been taking place at the library. Jess gave us a run-down of the Library’s new video game collection, located at a branch near you. Whitney showed us the Library’s new and growing collection of adult coloring books, and Ginny wrote about a new volunteer program called Reading Buddies that will help kids get interested in reading by paring them with a caring mentor.

To help get us in the holiday spirit, Tara suggested 10 Nontraditional Holiday Movies and Ten holiday albums available to stream on Hoopla. Kayla gave us her five favorite Christmas songs, and Jess made our mouths water with Cookie Time. Melissa F. made us think about consumerism and the holidays with her review of the book Scroogenomics.

In the totally-not-holiday-related department, Sheila explored Napoleonic romances, Scott M. professed his love for all things French, and Scott P. praised Freegal. Leigh Anne gave us an excellent reading list to tackle after watching Jessica Jones, Ross reviewed the new movie Heaven Knows What, and guest blogger Megan took a look at books being adapted into television shows.

Suzy wants you to leave her alone (but only sometimes), Abbey wants you to try listening to an audio book, and we all want you to know how much awesome Star Wars stuff the Library has.
