17 May











Just tested out the MuvChat software that lets you text your comments to the movie screen! I must say that this is phenomenal. I can’t describe how cool this is & how excited I am. Not to brag, but this is seriously the best idea I’ve had in a long time.

Mmmm cupcakes…

15 May











Check out a book on cupcakes or cooking! Got really hungry looking at all these books…

Some recommendations:

Cake pops : tips, tricks, and recipes for more than 40 irresistible mini treats / by Angie Dudley

Cupcakes, cookies, and pie, oh my! / Karen Tack & Alan Richardson

The sweet little book of cupcakes / by Nicholas Peruzzi, with Courtney Forrester

Video games @ the library!

17 Apr

Have a week off from school?  Had your fill of hiking and swimming?  Stuck inside due to the rain (gotta rain at some point, right?), but don’t feel like dropping a ton of money on a new game?

Check out a video game at the Newton Free Library.  Located on the third floor by the DVDs.

We have the following games for Xbox 360 and PS3
