Twilight series

Posted by SalesianLibrary on July 28, 2008

Twilight fans will be happy to hear that the book is being made into a movie! It’s to be released here in Australia in January. For more info click here Here’s the Twilight cover of Entertainment Weekly. Personally I don’t think it looks that great….I thought Edward was meant to be good looking?! lol What do you guys think?

Also here’s the trailer for those who want a sneak peak. It worked for me so fingers crossed it works for you too!

In other Twilight news, the next book Breaking Dawn is to be released on August the 4th which is only 6 days away! How exciting! You can find more information as well as a forum and a video with Stephanie Meyer talking about her new book here.

Movie websites

Posted by SalesianLibrary on July 24, 2008

One of my favourite websites, which you are probably all familiar with, is IMDB (or Internet Movie Database). It’s a fantastic resource for anything to do with past/current and future movies, telemovies or TV shows. You can look up trivia, quotes, message boards, release dates and more.

If you’re interested in costumes from movies then Costumers Guide is fantastic. It mainly has costumes from period pieces like Sweeny Todd, The Other Boleyn Girl, Australia etc but also includes some more modern movies.

We have some fantastic new shelving which you can see here, filled with careers books and also our display cabinet with more books and some different police hats. I’ve also put up a few posters around the library listing the university open days (http://www.vtac.edu.au/common/opendays.html) and information about the Sunbury/Gisborne Careers and Employment Expo. The Expo is on Tuesday the 22nd of July, from 3.30 to 7.00 at the Memorial Hall, Sunbury.
