Twilight: Eclipse

Posted by SalesianLibrary on November 30, 2009

I know New Moon has only just pretty much come out at the movies but I just have to share this Eclipse news with you all. The release date for Eclipse has been set at the 30th of June 2010. So not long to wait now!

I’ve found a website called Eclipse Movie where you can find all sorts of news and information about the upcoming movie in the Twilight series. You can also find posters and interviews with the cast on there.

You can also get more information on the IMDB page for Eclipse. There’s a forum on that page where you can ask questions, comment and just discuss the movie.

Another year over

Posted by SalesianLibrary on November 26, 2009

I can’t believe another year is almost over! It seems just like yesterday that 2009 was starting, as cliche as that sounds. Just a reminder, for those of you who are still at school, that you are able to borrow books to read over the holidays. Each person is allowed to borrow up to 5 items each, although if you give us a big smile (and a bribe) we may be willing to give you a couple more.

Have a great holiday everyone!
