Toco Hill All Packed Up!

by Jimmy L

As some of you may know, the Toco Hill-Avis G. Williams Branch was closed in January so that construction on a new library can begin. This is very exciting for us, but it’s also the beginning of a lot of work including packing up all the books into boxes! Below you’ll find some pictures of this laborious process.

Total “Eclipse”

by Jesse

“Twilight” by Stephenie Meyer was just so fantastic, that I quickly devoured the sequel “New Moon.” Now? I’m pretty much her personal slave.

So, in honor of the release of the third book in this trilogy “Eclipse” on August 7th, the Toco Hill-Avis G. Williams Branch will be hosting an Eclipse Prom on Halloween night!

What to Wear

Dress to impress! There will be a Best Look-a-Like contest for those who dress like characters from the books. The prize? An AUTOGRAPHED copy of “Eclipse” signed by Stephenie Meyer!

Um, Do We Have to Bring a Date?

Hey, if you’ve got one, go ahead and bring them, but they’ll be plenty of us going stag!

Ok, I’m In! So, When and Where is the Prom?

Wednesday October 31st, 6:00-8:00PM

Toco Hill-Avis G. Williams Library, 1282 McConnell Drive, Decatur, GA 30033
