We've got some new smileys! -which you might recognize from the old forum. More new ones are on the way too, so stay tuned. We've also got images along the side of the forum, so if you want to post some art it'll show up on the front page too for people to see.
till later -
Mockingjay won't be released until August, but in the meantime click over to Scholastic for a view of all three covers together and a little more information about Suzanne Collins' latest.
Also, check out Mr. Foster's Books if you can't see him in person.
There is a book that I had requested from another library. It has said "in transit" for at least 10 days. I just wanted to confirm that this meant it has not arrived at the Canton Public Library yet. My name is Brian Kutnick. Thanks.
They Might Be Giants No! - the title track has a great rock guitar riff that will get you bopping around.
Jim Gill Makes it Noisy In Boise - parents can definitely stand to listen to the swing sensation "The night we made it noisy in Boise, Idaho" and "Let's Dance Now!" I don't think it's possible to sit still and listen to those.
*Note- if you're a fan of Jim Gill, check out his Facebook page! He gives updates about his appearances and he has also announced that he's currently working on a new album! We can't wait to hear it!
The Music Man - so it isn't technically a children's CD, but what better way to get active than to march around the house to "Seventy six trombones"?

I'm thinking this will be a wonderful distraction during the week while I'm waiting for the next episode of Masterpiece Classic. Wonderful episode guides exist online if you want to watch a particular episode and can't remember its name or season. My favorite is the Road to Avonlea Guide &mdsh; but watch out! Spoilers abound!
If you love good storytelling, beautiful scenery, or period films--come check this series out!
I really don't think its necessary to require passwords to have both a lower case, upper case, punctuation and a number. This is really excessive. These requirements exceed the requirements for every secure site I have ever used: four brokerages, five insurance companies, sieight forture 500 companies I do consulting for, three retirement accounts and a dozen credit cards, etc etc. I have a sixteen character password which is plenty secure by any reasonable measure but it doesn't cut the muster for the Canton Public Library?
This password excess can actually promote insecurity because ittends to cause people to write it down becuase it doesn't match any other password they use. For me its a really pain because I have to get my password reset every single time I want to log in. Hopefully your IT director will consider changing this to a little more rational scheme.
