Science Fiction and Horror Movie series for 2017

E-mail Print

Coming in 2017: Werewolves and Martians!

For the 2017 season the Science Fiction / Horror Movie series will follow two themes: The Science Fiction theme will be the planet Mars and the Horror theme will be werewolves. Both of these themes are well covered in literature and on screen (big and little). The "red" planet has fascinated authors, especially with regards to the question of whether there is life on Mars. Early authors had fanciful notions of intelligent life and more modern writers has speculated about the more likely possibility of microbial life on Mars. Other authors have speculated about colonizing Mars. The six movies and one TV miniseries covers the whole range of this speculation. On the other hand, the full Moon has fascinated humanity since the stone age and amongst the things that go bump in the night, there is the relationship between humans and wolves and the idea that some humans are sometimes wolves and some wolves walk amongst us as fellow humans...

Wendell Post Archives Link

There is now a direct link on the Wendell Free Library website to the Wendell Post Archives preserved in the UMass Library's Special Collections.

From 1977 through 2001, the Wendell Post was published by and for the residents of Wendell. With its distinctive local perspective, the Post covered not only local politics, people, and events, but also issues with national implications, including the anti-nuclear movement, environmental concerns, recycling, and peacework.

The Wendell Post collection contains nearly every issue of a community newspaper produced in a small, rural New England town. Most issues include reports on town meetings and elections, schools, and public works, but also the Post carried news of the stuff of daily life such as births and deaths, high school graduations, anniversaries, Old Home Day, profiles of town residents, town history, and the crime report.

The link is located on the Library's Online References tab, or you can click here: Wendell Post Archives.

Donate Used DVDs & Books

 

 

 

 


DVDs

If you have DVDs in good condition collecting dust on your shelves, please consider giving them an new active life at the library. Our DVD collection gets heavy use and it's hard to keep up with the demand for new and varied titles. Even if it's a title you know the library already owns, we are always happy to replace our worn copy with a donated copy in better shape.

Books

Donations of recently published fiction and non fiction books (2013-2015) are also appreciated to round out the library's collection. Donated books need to be in good condition to make it on to the shelves. If we decide not to add a donated book to the collection, we can still place it out on the Friends of the Library Book Sale Carts in the lobby. Proceeds from those book sales support programs at the library.

We ask that you bring your DVD and book donations to the library during open hours, so that we can quickly sort through and pick out the items that make sense for here. Please don't leave boxes of donations on the porch.

If you have any questions, please e-mail or call.

Thanks!
