I tried to register for the Program "Water to Wine" next Thursday. It said I could register two people per library card, but it only let me register one. Could you please register one more person for me?
Here's your chance to log-in on William Shatner because the William Shatner Blogathon takes off on July 5.
Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.
This opportuniity comes to you via She Blogged by Night.
The rules are simple: Blog about William Shatner. Doesn't matter what you blog about; anything that bears the golden touch of the Shatman is fair game. You could blog about movies, sure, but you could also blog about TV shows, interviews, musical performances, cartoons, satire, you could even send me a link to something you have already written and submit it for the Shatnerthon!
I suggested a book 3 weeks ago, and for a week and 2 days it said it's been in the process of cataloging from the 'teen new books shelf', I was just wondering how long this takes because I would really like to read this book.
1. Thanks a lot for the new chairs @ study cabin area. They're a great help when you're to study with a computer for many hours.
2. There are a few wonderful people here @ CPL who needs to be appreciated. And its their kindness & help that makes this library the best place in town.
-Mrs. Eileen: All the front desk people are real gems but she's an extremely nice; genuinely humble & sweet person; has helped me & many of my friends at many a times. I respect her a lot for her kindness & help.
-Mr. Bill (the security guy) is indeed a great soul. ALWAYS there to help. He & I both worry about the floor @ the library entrance thats been ripped off (a lil). The other day a girl got her shoe stuck in the gap and almost fell (could have hit her head against the hard floor) -- Please do somethin about that! Thanx.
-Mr. Bradd (@East reference desk mostly in the evening hours) Extremely kind & helpful; I have noticed that he actually cares about "silence" in the library (He speaks in a low tone himself, never talks too much on phone, always makes sure students like myself and others don't get disturbed by a few talkative souls in the area). I owe him a lot of thanks (as the kind of concentrated studying is only possible in a relatively Quiet (if not Quiet like Quiet-Room) place -- maintained/supervised by people who're Quiet themselves.
(I realized the fact only yesterday when the person @ East desk was being a bit too loud in her communication, @ about 10 o'clock thats normally a very quiet and good time to study.)
People often talk loud, esp when they book a discussion room (usually high school students) They're loud enough that even those who're sitting outside can't help but getting disturbed. Could you please do something about that too? like may be post some certain rules on each table & above all request the librarians to set a good example for everyone else around.
-Ms. Jeanine (@ copy centre - reference etc.) She taught me all the copying, printing, faxing etc. without me asking for that as she's so on-the-look-to-helping-someone; Extremely nice person.
I owe this place alot, Hope to return back someday!!
P.S. All the ones responsible for keeping this place clean. I've been to Ypsi library & others too but CPL is the cleanest place of all. All thanks to them.
I was wondering if you have a waiting list for the Teen Creative Writing Classes? I would like to put my daughter on this list (Amanda Nilles) if you have one.
How many times can we enter the short story contest?
Wild Hogs — Like any good travel movie, this film shows that it's the journey, not the destination.
Fear and loathing in Las Vegas — When packing for a trip, some people have different priorities than others. An ether frolic of a movie, from the mind of Hunter S. Thompson.
O brother, where art thou? — A modern-ish adaptation of Homer's Odyssey, the ultimate travel epic. Watch out for the catchy soundtrack.
Up in the air — From what I've gathered (having not seen it yet), George Clooney flies around a lot. Sounds like a travel movie to me.
Back to the future: the complete trilogy — A different kind of travel. Time travel counts. It doesn't get much better than BTTF.
National Lampoon's vacation — A required fixture on any travel film list.
The beach — Speaking of Leo, here's a slightly-different journey to Thailand and beyond.
