Another Snow Day But Not For the Library!

There’s a lot of snow flying around out there today and schools are closed… but the Boston Public Library is open until 5pm tonight!

Here in the Copley Teen Room, we’re showing random episodes of Roswell all day until 3pm. At 3, the anime club meets and they will be starting the series Bleach. Anyone is welcome to watch either Roswell or Bleach. Come on over and enjoy a good show while the snow falls all around us!

Also at 3pm is our knitting club meeting. Even if you’ve never knitted anything before, you’re welcome to come learn the basics. And if you do know how to knit, bring your needles and have some fun! The knitting club meets every Friday afternoon in January.

Next week on Saturday the 29th from 1-4pm we’re having a Stuff Swap in the Copley Teen Room. Did you get a few unwanted gifts for Christmas? Are you tired of that old poster hanging on your wall? Looking for a way to get rid of books you don’t want without throwing them out? Bring it all to the Stuff Swap and swap it for things you DO want! We just ask that what you bring is still in good usable shape, that it’s something someone else might possibly want.

Potter-Mania!

As you and everyone by now knows, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 opened this weekend.

(I am, of course, a HUGE fan of both the books and the movies. Yes, I did attend the midnight showing. And just going to interject with my personal opinion: the movie was excellent and follows the book much more closely than the previous film adaptations so far. Go, watch it. Enjoy it. Thank me later.)

The movie earned 125.1 million dollars in this first weekend. Amazing! Of course, there are a ton of fun Potter-related stories out there, so for any fans of the magical world, I”ve compiled some fun Rowling and movie-related links.

J.K. Rowling’s Official site – The site’s main page is laid out as if you are looking at the top of her desk. It’s one of the more original websites I have seen.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movie site – Also, a very cool site. Muggle Hub has tons of free downloads, there are of clips, games, music, news and you can create an Undesireable No. 1 poster.

MuggleNet – The biggest Harry Potter fansite out there. Chat with other fans, read reviews, participate in polls, and generally look around an awesome Potter site.

The Leaky Cauldron – Another Potter fansite filled with interviews from the cast, cellphone apps, and knitting patterns! (Because knitting patterns are so interesting to read.)

Scholastic’s Harry Potter – (that’s the publisher) Not nearly as intersting as the others, but it does have some time-wasting games if that’s what you’re into.

Harry Potter FanFiction – Read stories created by other Potter fans; write your own stories based on the Potter characters. (If you do write your own, we’d love to read it, too!)

Harry Potter’s Page – Yet another fansite. (Personally, I like the other two better, but this is good, too.)

There are tons more sites out there, but these should help quell that Harry Potter itch for a while at least.

The BPL does not endorse any of these sites, the books or the movies. It’s just some fun Harry Potter-related stuff.

Auto-tuning Rocks!

Someone turned an auto-tuner on some wolf howls (and added some beats). Pretty awesome if you ask me:

Thanks to http://www.boingboing.net/2010/05/21/autotuned-wolves.html for showing us this!
