PokeMon Go!

If you haven't heard by now, the coolest app and game right now is PokeMon Go!

Look what our Teen Librarian, Mrs. Crystal, caught flying around the children's area today...

We were able to catch up with Mrs. Crystal and here's what she had to say about her capture: 
"With much skill and concentration, I was able to successfully capture the Zubat without knocking over any of the books on display while managing to remain super quiet remembering I was still in a library. Ya know, it is a library and the Zubat is a flying PokeMon, so it was kinda hard to catch it without knocking any of the books down and making much noise so I wouldn't get in trouble with the other Librarians. I caught the Zubat on my second try! Excuse me while I walk around the library and gather up some more PokeBalls. It's kinda cool that the library is also a Pokestop too!"

Mrs. Crystal also mentioned that she thought that the Zubat was trying to find and hide all of the PokeMon books so that people don't get the inside scoop on how to 'catch em all!' So make sure you come and check out the books before all of these pesky PokeMon hide them all!

Not only will you find dozens of PokeMon and books around the library, but EAM is also a PokeStop and a PokeGym! So come to EAM and meet other PokeMon Trainers, discuss stategies on how to catch em all, check out Pokemon resources, battle other trainers, and collect some PokeBalls!

TEEN BOOK TALK: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Monday, 11 July 2016 @4:30 PM
Book Talk about Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children


EAM is proud to announce that we have collaborated with Mrs. Avalos (Librarian at El Dorado HS) and the other school libraries to facilitate a city wide book talk for our teens. 

On Monday, 11 July 2016 @4:30 PM we will convene at the designated library branches to video chat and discuss the book Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. During this discussion, we will also be creating our own movie posters. Then on 30 September 2016 we'll all go see the movie at Cinemark East Montana. Directly after the movie we'll host a discussion comparing and contrasting the book and the movie in a reserved party room.

4th of July

On this day, 4 July 1776, the 13 colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States. Each year on July 4th, also know as Independence Day, Americans celebrate this historic event.

...but of course, what's a holiday without a holiday themed storytime with Ms. Debi?! Ms. Debi read 4th of July themed books; sang familiar songs; and provided the kids with a fun Uncle Sam mask to create and wear.


Unfortunately the library branches were closed for the holiday; however, we are now back open and still celebrating the holiday throughout the branch.

Drum roll please...

On Saturday, 11 June 2016 we had a special visitor who helped us out during our storytime! Can you take a guess on who that special guest was?


CHICO! Chico and his friends came to visit us, read to us, enjoy Ms. Debi's readings, and assist with crafts. Afterwards, we found Chico roaming around the library looking for books to check out.

After Chico's visit, we also had a special performance by Mauricio who brought along all of his drums. Mauricio gave a brief demonstration and lesson and then allowed everyone to play along joining in on a huge drumming session.

#MCM


Our young adult's #MCM goes to Jeb from the third book in the Splintered Series, Ensnared, by A.G. Howard.
"After surviving a disastrous battle at prom, Alyssa has embraced her madness and gained perspective. She’s determined to rescue her two worlds and the people and netherlings she loves. Even if it means challenging Queen Red to a final battle of wills and wiles . . . and even if the only way to Wonderland, now that the rabbit hole is closed, is through the looking-glass world—a parallel dimension filled with mutated and violent netherling outcasts.In the final installment of the wildly popular Splintered trilogy, Alyssa and her dad journey into the heart of magic and mayhem in search of her mom and to set right all that’s gone wrong. Together with Jeb and Morpheus, they must salvage Wonderland from the decay and destruction that has ensnared it. But if they succeed and come out alive, can everyone truly have their happily ever after?"
