We've just added an Apple iMac workstation loaded with Adobe Creative Suite 6, which includes Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, and Dreamweaver. The new Digital Media Lab has an Epson photo/film scanner, Wacom tablet, a Focusrite Scarlett 2-input soundcard, and a Nikon D3100 DSLR. You can use it to create movies, graphics, and audio, scan old photos, create webpages, and more. Thanks to the Friends of the Library for funding the DML with monies raised in the 2012 Annual Appeal.
If you're interested in learning more, we are holding drop-in introduction sessions every Wednesday in October from 6-8pm! Bring your questions and get setup so you can use the DML.

The library is accepting non-perishable foods in lieu of money for overdue fines during the month of September. In the spirt of Food for Fines, the amount of the donation should be comparable to the amount of the fine owed. Donated food items should be in good condition and not have expired dates. Collected food will be donated to the Wilmington Food Pantry. Suggested items are listed on the Community Fund website.

In your opinion, what were some of the best books of 2013? You can vote now on which titles you feel should be in the YALSA Top Ten list, along with other teen readers across the country. Voting is open now through October 22nd. (My pick is Tilt by Ellen Hopkins - gritty realistic fiction at its finest.)
Do you have an amazing book you want to recommend to others? Visit our Teen Facebook and send me a quick review - I'll post them on my blog!

Did you know? There is now an iPad available just for teens to borrow for up to the two hours in the Teen Zone. It's loaded with the hottest games!
Newsflash! There is now a True Stories section in Teen Non-fiction - for those of you who enjoy a hearty serving of reality. We have books about ghastly crimes, haunted happenings, tales of survival, and even a book about fairies (true story?!). Look above the Biographies or ask your friendly librarian for assistance (or recommendations!)
