On Monday, November 19 and November 26 from 7 to 8 pm, the Writers and Readers club will meet downstairs at the Library. It’s just for Riverside people in 6th to 8th grade. Be there for writing games where we will gear up for character development, description and other snarly writing stuff. Be there to discuss (or criticize) a new book, genre or movie. It’s going to be the literary event of the year! (Or at least a fun way to spend your Monday evening.)
On Friday, November 16, at the library you will be able to stay after hours for the Friday Night film club. If you were here last time, you know that club members get to choose the next film. This week’s is, “Moonrise Kingdom,” the story of a boy, a girl, and a dream to make their own world in the middle of family dysfunction and boy scout camp. Show starts at 4 pm. It’s only for Riverside 6th grade and up and there will be popcorn, pizza and other movie treats. Fill your mind and your stomach! (This movie is rated PG-13, and that’s okay. Just bring a signed permission slip if you are a 6th grader who is 12 years old.)

Valentine is out to destroy all Shadowhunters and create a new era of stronger Shadowhunters. Clary discovers her natural powers and helps to destroy Valentine for good.
NEWS FLASH!!! There will be a movie based on this first book in the series expected to release April, 2013!
In these two action packed adventure books, you will have the time of you life with the twins Coke and Pepsi (also called Pep) McDonald. If you love crazy, funny, and dangerous books- here’s your ticket to heaven. If you like codes or spy stuff you will also love this book. These books got me hooked the second I started. If you absolutely hate codes, ciphers, danger, crazy, or funny, these books are most definitely not for you. I think you would be more comfortable with a dictionary if you don’t like even one of these things.
