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!

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.

Zombies and Witch Doctors and Superheros

Recognizing that it is somewhat unusual that a librarian would recommend that you actually purchase a book, but sometimes exceptions simply must be made. So, for the Walking Dead fan and/or fans of graphic novels in general, this week the Humble (eBook) Bundle is for you. For the price of your choosing, you could get the "Walking Dead" graphic novels by Robert Kirkman volumes 1 through 5!

Of course, don't forget our own collection of The Walking Dead, or graphic novels too.

Learn to Play Mah jongg!

We're wondering if you are interested in playing or learning to play the game of Mah jongg. Played with 144 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols, Mah jongg is similar to rummy with some level of skill required and a degree of chance.
