New Comics Added to Hoopla

You like your comics with a touch of the supernatural, or sci-fi? Hoopla, our new partner for digital media, has just added a bunch of new graphic novel series from Image Comics to their lineup. Currently, you can download The Walking Dead (volumes 1-23), Spawn Origins (volumes 1-10), Saga, Morning Glories, Invincible, and Chew.

Now you can get right into the action when you read these comics right from the Hoopla app (App Store or Google Play). Their new Action-View provides one-of-a-kind immersive panel-by-panel reading experience.

Remembering Oliver Sacks

Famed neurologist and author Oliver Sacks died yesterday, August 30th, 2015. People who loved his writings will surely miss his humor, charm, and insight.

In honor of his passing, I've put together a collection of his writings. Perhaps after seeing some of these you will recall a favorite passage of his in a book that you've already read, or you may discover something new you would like to read.

3rd Annual Geocaching Contest Winners


The drawing for this year's prizes is now complete in the Third Annual Multi-Library Geocaching Competition. Unfortunately, I'm sorry to say that no one from Tinley Park won this year. Winning geocaching teams were from Oak Lawn, Lansing, Palos Heights, and Alsip/Merrionette Park libraries.

I hope you had fun exploring the area's libraries and finding their geocaches. Thank you for playing, and come back next year for the Fourth Annual Multi-Library Geocaching Competition!
