Want to win a much coveted rubber duckie?  How about an even more coveted ARC (Advanced Reader Copy)?  Well, you can if you're a winner of our contest this month!
For the month of October, we're looking at things up-close.  Real close.  Nose-pressed-up-to-the-glass close.
Every week we'll post a close-up photo of an object in our library on all of our social media sites. That means @HUB500 on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!  
In the middle of the week, we'll post a picture of the same object but with the camera pulled back just a little bit more.
Finally, on Friday, we'll post the picture revealing the object.  Your mission, if you choose to accept, is to guess what that object is as quickly as possible in the comments of the photo on our Instagram page!
The first person to correctly guess each week's photo is a winner of the contest!  We'll let you know if you're the winner for the week!
A duckie and ARC are at stake here, folks!  Let's do this!  Happy guessing!  wink

Over the weekend, we welcomed professional photographer Rebecca Reuland to the HUB. She presented a photography and Photoshop program resulting in teen-made movie posters.

First, we examined popular movie posters, how they use film stills and text to grab your attention and convey what the movie is about.

Next, we broke into groups to brainstorm supposed films and possible shots we could set up in and around the library.
Then, the fun part, we set up shots based on the genre and setting of the films. Using existing lighting, reflectors, aperture speed, and other effects, each team took multiple shots to manipulate for their movie’s posters.

After a brief tutorial on Photoshop, teens made posters for films that featured Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, killer books that come to life at the library, a ukulele wielding killer, a documentary about books, and more!
