General Information

See Troll 2 at Strange Brew and Online

How can I even describe the proclaimed, “Best Worst Movie” of all time? I can’t. This film emits such a level of love or loathing in its newest viewers that fan reactions are just as comical as this film. Bring this film up to friends or coworkers and you will either get judged for your terrible choice in movies or make a new best friend.

See for yourself at Strange Brew Cafe (one of our campus vendors) or online through the Moraine Valley Library database Hoopla.

Batman Day is this Saturday, September 28th!

Pick up the best of Batman titles this Saturday, September 18th on display at the library. We’ve got an excellent assortment of Batman graphic novels curated by the Moraine Valley librarians. We’ve got the classic Batman run “A Death in the Family” by Jim Starlin, the man who created Thanos. You can also pick up Alan Moore’s legendary title, “The Killing Joke” . This seminal title was the foundation for nearly every Batman movie since and the 2020 blockbuster Joker. In the mood for a great detective story? Read Jeph Loeb’s “The Long Halloween”, where Batman tracks down all the famous DC villains in the hope of stopping a series of terrible crimes. Checkout these titles and more on display at the library and online through Hoopla.

The 20th Anniversary of 9/11

Tomorrow, the United States prepares to honor the twentieth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attack. Over 3,000 lives were lost. Hopefully, Americans will spend some time reflecting on the people who died. Also, a special tribute to the first responders who gave their lives while attempting to save others.

What’s Going On?

This weekend I read the book All We Can Save. This is the “One Book, One College” selection for the MVCC 2021-2022 school year. The book examines climate change. Ironically, hours after I finished the book on Sunday, a tornado ripped through my neighborhood. Suddenly some of the facts in the book became a startling reality for me.

This storm was calculated as a EF-3 tornado on the Enhanced Fujita Scale. Some climate experts believe the frequency of tornadoes in the United States is stable but not their patterns.

I highly recommend this book. The authors’ perspective of climate change is interesting and the book is well written and persuasive. I have always championed respect for our world and its inhabitants. The June 20 tornado added to my resolve to continue educating myself about climate change.
