Get Schooled with Brainfuse!

It's that time of year again ... Back to School!

Yep! (I can sense the many groans and sob sounds from readers.)

But seriously, it's time to hit the books again!

And just in time for all those back-to-school essays, assignments, and tests, the Prince George’s County Memorial Library System has a new homework help tool available for you called Brainfuse.  It's really cool!

Back to School

school hallway

I hate to be bitter grapes, but summer is slowly reaching an end. School just started and Maryland tax free week is over, we thought this would be a safe way to present you with a *super* short list of books for heading back to school. Here are some suggestions of books for those of you starting out somewhere new this school year.
 

Summer TV Withdrawal

I like TV a lot. Seriously like a ridiculously embarrassing amount. Two of my favorite shows, So You Think You Can Dance has ended and MTV’s Teen Wolf is coming to the end of its season. And I'm definitely not ready to let go of Hell's Kitchen and MasterChef  just yet, either. After their summer runs I will be left with major t. v. withdrawal.  At least I still have my cooking shows.

Web Sightings

If you need something to distract you from the intense heat wave, hopefully this will help. These are a couple of trending websites for teen readers and pop culture enthusiasts we thought you should stay inside and check out.

Books to Movies Teasers

Sorry to interrupt your regularly scheduled... well, you know, blog posts to pass along these trailers that caught our eye.

First up is Hugo based on the book, The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. It's a thick book so you might want to do a read-it then see-it combo or vice versa.
