    When you work with the public, in an environment that welcomes people together, your life naturally intertwines with those you serve. Hundreds of people walk through the doors of the Olympia library each day for any number of reasons. And many of those people visit us every single day. Albert was a patron I saw almost every day for several years. The same bus dropped him off each…

    Our full HoopTober Ocho list

    Tyler Perry’s Boo 2 uses the dressing of Halloween to examine the complexities of parenting, specifically the difficulties that arise when divorced parents have conflicting visions for the proper way to raise their children. Tiffany has just turned 18, and stick-in-the-mud dad is over-protective and clingy, while mom (who largely left the parenting all to dad while Tiffany was growing up) is more concerned with being the cool parent – perhaps to…

    “Carrie” has not lost an ounce of its power since it was released over 43 years ago. If anything, its stature has only grown. If you’ve never seen it, or it’s been awhile, you owe it to yourself to check it out. It’s one of the best movies ever made.

    There are several monsters lurking around Carrie White. There’s Chris, the alpha among the girls in her school,…

    The premise is simple: a handful of sorority sisters have no plans for Christmas break, so instead stay on campus in the house they share. This movie could’ve easily exploited its…
