People didn’t always know what caused storms or earthquakes, so they invented stories to explain the inexplicable. Perhaps lightning flashes across the sky when Zeus is angry. Perhaps earthquakes are caused by the writhing of Loki who is imprisoned under the surface of the Earth while poison drips on his face.

I was thinking about epistolary novels recently. These are novels that are written as a series of documents. In the past, these documents might be letters, newspaper clippings, or journal entries. More recently the form has expanded to include emails, radio broadcasts, and blog entries among others.
Woodridge recently had a brush with Hollywood when we threw a red carpet premiere for a teen-made film, Avengers Endgame: Hood Version. Written by, starring, and shot partially at the library by members of our Teen Lounge, the film puts a DC spin on the popular Marvel movie.
Woodridge is celebrating the start of Summer Challenge 2019 with special events and sign-up opportunities for the first week starting on Saturday, June 1!
We're encouraging library users of all ages to read 20 minutes a day, every day from June 1 to Aug. 31 to earn prizes along the way, including a free book and tickets to see the Washington Nationals! We'll have fun activities all summer long, but here's how we're kicking it off Woodridge-style:
Recently I was watching Beetlejuice, and I found the way death was handled to be a fascinating idea. Initially the Maitland family are unaware that they’re even dead. Nobody tells them. They’re just given a handbook, and limited number of visits with a caseworker to get things figured out as they hang out in their home.
As Women's History Month draws to an end, we wanted to share some of the beautiful bulletin boards our staff created for those who haven't been for a visit recently to see them in person. Featuring influential women of the past and present, these displays have been a highlight of the first floor all month long.
