An afternoon with Shakespeare!

William Shakespeare died 400 years ago on April 23, 1616 and many people and organizations are celebrating his life this year in many ways. We celebrated it by going back in time and bringing him to 2016 so we could meet him and get to know him better.

We've got proof! The video below is from April 23, 2016 at the Tuckahoe Library. Take a look!

Some trailers feature the author; some feature the book's artwork or a theatrical voice over. No matter what kind of trailer the publisher makes, book trailers are always fun to watch.

Here are four book trailers for recently released or soon-to-be-published books you can find at your Henrico County Public Library.

These filmmakers participated in Tuckahoe Library's Make a Lego Movie program last Saturday. They worked together to write the script, build their sets, and film and edit their stop animation Lego movies.

Five Green and Speckled Frogs

Five green and speckled frogs sat on a speckled log
Eating some most delicious bugs -- YUM YUM!
One jumped into the pool where it was nice and cool
Then there were four green and speckled frogs.

Original idea taken from Librarian vs Storytime.

Reading about science isn't always that exciting.

Watching science?

Much more fun.

With that in mind, we've created a five-part video series called "Science Shorts." Every other Wednesday throughout the summer, we'll post a short science video, demonstrating different science concepts and showing you how to recreate these demonstrations at home.

Enjoy!
