May is short story month! Time to try some Science Fiction and Fantasy!

May is short story month!
Admit it, sometimes you want a good story, but don't have a lot of time, and the thought of starting up that thousand-page tome is daunting. If you're in the mood for a quick fix-try some short fiction!

Science fiction and fantasy readers could easily subsist entirely on short fiction if they so desired. With so many sources of good short fiction available, it's hard Not to read it.

Trends

A recent article in Library Journal discussed trends in the circulation of library materials.  65% of items circulated are from the Fiction area, with Mysteries being the top circulating subgenre within Fiction.  The popularity of mysteries is no surprise to those of us who read them.  Readers continue to be drawn to the varied types of mysteries being published today.

Summer's Coming (and so are the movies!)

Rainy Day Films

Well of course it’s sunny and beautiful today as I am writing this post, but the inspiration for it came on Wednesday—gloomy, rainy Wednesday—when a patron asked for a particular film and remarked that it was her favorite “go-to” rainy day film.  So since we’re bound to have our share of rainy days in the future, I shall channel my inner Boy Scout motto

Pass the Popcorn, please!

Stumped for a movie to watch with the kids? Overwhelmed by the rows and rows of titles on the shelves? Wondering if, somewhere amidst the rancid stew of reality shows flooding your TV, there might be something actually worth watching?

Reviews of 2 new Fantasy titles.

Fantasy isn't always about Dragons and wizards. Sometimes it's about a big old Victorian house that you never noticed before...until one day you feel compelled to walk up and knock on the door, or a phone call from a stranger who states that you are the only one who can prevent an otherwise certain death.

More on Our May 1 program on Energy Therapy/Chakra Cleansing with Linda Street

Greetings Edge Readers...

I've just talked with our speaker, Reiki Master, Linda Street, and she tells me she intends to  include several experiential elements in her program on May 1.  That means some of you will have a chance to participate in an energy therapy exercise.  No one will be forced to do anything they don't want to, so if you're shy and don't want to be the center of attention, you're safe. We'll just have those who are interested in being a test subject, throw their names into a bag as they enter, and then we'll draw from that collection when the time comes.

I'm really psyched about this program.  Please remember to register; you can call 440-250-5460, come to any public service desk in the library or register on line using our event calendar.  I'll make it easy for you, click HERE and it will take you directly to the sign-up sheet.

Part II of Our Series on Energy Healing with Linda Street

Heads Up! Save the Date...You spoke, I listened. Welcome back Edge readers.

After our program last October on Reike with Linda Street, I collected the evaluation sheets you filled out and so many of you wanted more information on energy healing, that I've asked Linda back for a second presentation in which she can go into more depth. In response to a couple of you who requested something specifically on Chakra Cleansing, she will be devoting part of the program to that topic.

We look forward to seeing you there, May 1, 2013-7:00 to 8:30 pm. We'll open the doors at 6:30, so you can arrive a little early to meet and greet each other and get settled. We'll have refreshments and literature for you to pick up.

Registration is required for this program; ask at any public service desk, use our online event calendar, or call 440-250-5460.

That's all for now...I'll be back later with more info.

Until then, remember to Keep Your Eye on The Edge.

Magneto to marry Professor X!

Congrats you two!

McKellan discussed the plan while appearing on the British TV show “The Jonathan Ross Program” over the weekend. “I'm going to marry Patrick," the actor said at first, then added, "I am going to officiate at his wedding.”
