The day that people started developing superpowers many people looked to the news and the skies for the emergence of superheros. What they got instead were the Epics. They’ve got super powers, just like from the comic books, but there’s one thing they got wrong. There are no superheros, the Epics are all villains. When he was just a boy David saw his father killed by one of the most powerful Epics of all, Steelheart. But he saw something else that day, he’s the only person to ever see Steelheart bleed, and he intends to see him bleed again.

Here is a remarkable video that shows that everyone has a voice and can make themselves be heard. Many people have heard or are concerned about the privacy and rights of Americans and others in the wake of the NSA spying programs that have been revealed. This young man put together a video to state and share his views on the subject and put them out there for the world.
You could do the same, and we’d love to help! The Library has plenty of books on video techniques and even Flip Cameras that film in HD available for checkout. Drop by the library, or get in touch with one of our librarians online if you have any questions. We’re happy to be able to help, so don’t hesitate to ask us!
Here’s a great and short video clip created by a teen who wanted to share a great, and unique, study break with us all. Be warned, it may make you a little dizzy!

We’re happy to announce that we have laptops available for use in the library! These are Apple laptops, just like the ones used in Falmouth Schools. We’re happy to lend these laptops out for use while you’re visiting the library. (Sorry, no taking them home.)
For those of you under 18, you will need to have a parent or guardian fill out a form the first time (Or in advance), but after that we make it easy.
Of course we also have free wi-fi, places to plug in, and librarians on hand ready to help with research or troubleshooting. We’re always happy to help you get online.
