Glen Wills takes us on a journey across Alabama as he documents the remnants of Alabama's past. What started as a chance encounter of noticing an old car along the highway and not having a camera became a mission.  Over the course of the last 10 years, he visited all of Alabama's 67 counties, logged 30,000 miles and took close to 15,000 photographs.

6th-12th graders are welcome to come learn how to design and create a 3D object we will print for you using the library's 3D printer.  Space is limited. The objects will be available to pick up in about two weeks. 


The library reserves the right to limit size and content of the print files.

Note: We will use a free, online program to design the project.  The library has several logins but students may want to sign up for TinkerCad before our program. You need an email address to sign up and, for teens under 13, parental permission and a three-day waiting period. The website is https://www.tinkercad.com/.

Check out one of the many X-Men movies!
Review
This movie was brilliant. The first movie in the X-Men franchise, this movie takes your favorite comic book to a whole new level on the big screen. I especially loved how true the actors were to their roles. I liked this movie because it put my favorite X-Men on the big screen. I would reccommend this movie to any Marvel or X-Men fan.

Review
This was actually my first time watching a James Bond movie and, I must say, I was pretty impressed. The chicness of the characters, the clean-cut plot line, and the well-paced action, made the movie a good classic. The only reason the movie was rated short of a '5' is because of Bond's relations with women, which seemed to distract from the main plot most of the time; but, then again, it is James Bond.
