Halloween Favorites

Addams Family Season 1 - Halloween with the Addams Family
(scroll down to episode 7)
A pair of bank robbers are welcomed as Halloween trick-or-treaters by Morticia and Gomez. The creepy atmosphere of the house, Morticia's smoldering holiday punch and Lurch's ominous presence impel the crooks to abandon their plans to add Addams money and jewelry to their bank loot.

Elosie's Rawther Unusual Halloween
Every Halloween, the ghost of The Plaza's most legendary and outrageous inhabitant of old, Diamond Jim Johnson, returns to haunt the halls. But when the hotel's most famous 6 year-old girl, Eloise, encounters this frightening phantom, nobody believes her story of old-time spooks with larger than life appetites.

The Dog Who Saved Halloween
Zeus & the Bannisters have moved into a new house, just in time for Halloween!  Everything seems to be going well until they notice strange lights and sounds coming from neighbor Eli's (Lance Henriksen of ALIENS) house.  When George (Gary Valentine of TV's KING OF QUEENS) takes it upon himself to find out what is going on, he enlists the help of a very unlikely pair (lead by Dean Cain of TV's LOIS & CLARK), and a surprising partnership forms.  After the trio and George's wife Belinda (Elisa Donovan of CLUELESS), get trapped in the spooky house, only Zeus is left to save Halloween!

 By the Light of the Halloween Moon
Join the fun as a brave young girl, who would rather play a trick than be gobbled up as a treat, is the star of this spirited romp under an old wooden bridge by the light of the spooky Halloween moon. Narrated by Sherry Stringfield with music by John Jennings.

Do You Use OverDrive Read? If so please read.

ODR 10_2014OverDrive has created a new version of OverDrive Read, the browser-based eBook reading experience which launched today!   This update retains all of the great features you are currently enjoying in OverDrive Read, such as the ability to read offline, bookmarks, notes, search, and custom readability options. And, best of all, OverDrive Read is available with just one-click in any major modern web browser, and doesn't require any software installation or device registration. ODR 2 In order to adopt this new technology OverDrive Read will no longer work in older versions of Internet Explorer (i.e., any IE version less than version 10) beginning today October 15,2014. Less than 0.2% of OverDrive Read usage is from a version of IE less than 10, so the few users who are impacted by this change will need to update their IE browser. To find out which version of IE you are using open IE and select HELP and choose About Internet Explorer. If it is not IE 10 or higher then upgrade IE to a newer version (we recommend IE10) or switch to the most current versions of Chrome, Firefox, Android, Safari, or the standard browsers on devices like Kindle and Nook. If you have questions you can contact the LVCCLD Virtual Library Monday - Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 702.507.6300 for assistance.

Big Library Read Starts Today! Get Your Copy Now!
The Big Library Read starts today and runs thru October 28th, so start reading Anatomy of a Misfit. You can get your eBook or eAudio Book from the eMedia Catalog.

In this Mean Girls meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower tale, narrator Anika Dragomir is the third most popular girl at Pound High School. But inside, she knows she's a freak; she can't stop thinking about former loner Logan McDonough, who showed up on the first day of tenth grade hotter, bolder, and more mysterious than ever. Logan is fascinating, troubled and off-limits. The Pound High queen bee will make Anika's life hell if she's seen with him. So Anika must choose--ignore her feelings and keep her social status? Or follow her heart and risk becoming a pariah. Which will she pick? And what will she think of her choice when an unimaginable tragedy strikes, changing her forever? An absolutely original new voice in YA in a story that will start important conversations--and tear at your heart.
