In the Spotlight: Steam® Cafe

Eco Game on Stream 2.png

Our inaugural Game-of-the-Month is ECO from Strange Loop®, whose

goal is to build games that go beyond fun. . .and give players a new perspective on the world, connect communities together, and

redefine what it means to ‘play’.

We have installed a new gaming platform called Steam in the Juice Box at The Library, especially for tweens and teens. When you connect to your Steam account

on the Library's free Wi-Fi,

you can play your games. . .

and have access to ours, too!

Play ECO: Create a civilization capable of stopping a meteor without destroying the ecosystem in the process.

Karen Little Owls of the Eastern Ice cropped.jpg

Community Library Assistant and English Language Instructor Karen Little recommends Owls of the Eastern Ice, by Jonathan C. Slaght.

An owl that feeds mostly on fish? Particularly salmon? How odd. Not strange at all for the Blakiston’s fish owl, world’s largest and one of the rarest owls.

Jonathan Slaght, author, scientist, and conservationist, describes this fish-eating owl, “Bigger than any owl he knew, it looked like a small bear with decorative feathers.” The enormous owl sports a wingspan up to six and a half feet, stands over two feet tall (about the size of a fire hydrant), and can weigh up to eleven pounds. In addition, the owl is notable for its intense yellow eyes.

Book Beat: Student Book Review

book-Daughter of the Deep.jpg

Hi, I am Sarah. I am fourteen years old and an avid reader; it is one of my favorite things to do. Inspired by authors’ creations of magnificent places and surprising havens built by simple letters, I aspire to be an author and, meanwhile, nurture the love to write.

For my Book Beat review, I read Daughter of the Deep by Rick Riordan.

Ana Dakkar is finishing up her freshman year at Harding-Pencroft Academy, an elite marine school that produces the best naval officers, marine scientists, oceanographers, and undersea navigators in the world.

And while it may sound hard, Ana can’t imagine life anywhere else. Her family has gone to HP for generations and, beyond that, Harding-Pencroft is her home. Ever since her parents died in an undersea accident, the school is all she and her brother, Dev, have left. 

As Ana gears up for her end-of-year trials at sea, that home is stolen in a world-shattering tragedy. . .
