Talking Points

Second Annual Multi-Library Geocaching Competition

We had a really successful and fun event this year, thanks to everyone who participated this summer! We hope you had fun exploring the other libraries in the area.

Unfortunately, no one's game card from Tinley Library was drawn as a prize winner this year. ☹ However, Tinley Library members made up a significant proportion of this year's participants! Here are some more statistics from the Geocaching Competition.

Have you heard the news? Russian hackers have stolen 1.2 Billion passwords from various agencies, and you might be affected. An article from Forbes magazine shines some skeptical light on this news, but even if the situation is not as dire as reported, it's always a good idea to change your most important passwords on a regular basis, and to use strong passwords that cannot be easily guessed.

David Levithan, who co-authored the 2010 young adult novel Will Grayson, Will Grayson with John Green, is in the process of writing a “musical-novel spinoff,” to be released in Spring 2015. This news, of course, begs the question, “What exactly is a musical-novel?”
