We currently have the seven Asimov Foundation novels for you to re-read or perhaps to enjoy for the first time.
Several of the Glenside librarians went to see Breaking Dawn Part 1 on opening day.
Young Adult Librarian's Review:
For those who've been following the ongoing travails of Luke Skywalker and the Jedi, we have book 8, the penultimate in the series, available now. Will Luke and his son Ben defeat the evil Abeloth? Will the Galactic Alliance collapse into yet another civil war? What about the lost tribe of the Sith? Will Ben tempt the alluring, yet evil Vestara Khai to the light side of the force? Will they get married and make Luke a grandpa? Will the Star Wars universe chug merrily on forever? Who knows, but you might find out a little bit more when you read:
If you are looking for an activity that the whole family can enjoy, take a trip to the Field Museum to see Whales: Giants of the Deep. Glenside has some great materials to look at before you visit the museum.
