Gather the troops and get ready to enter our 5th annual Gingerbread Building Competition! You may choose to build a traditional house, or get creative with another design. Two divisions are available: Adult, and Youth & Family. If a child plays a significant role in the building of the creation, the entry is eligible for the Youth and Family division. Celebrity judges will use pre-determined criteria to rate the creations and the top two scores in each division will win a prize donated by the Friends of the UAPL. All entries will be displayed in Meeting Room A on Saturday, December 3 during our annual Holiday Happiness event. Check out http://gingerbread.ualibrary.org for all the details and to register!

Teen Recommendation: A Beautiful Friendship
Genetically modified Stephanie Harrington survives a motorized hang-glider accident and an attack by a hexapuma because of the intervention of a six-legged treecat, who risks his own life to save her. She returns the favor, and the two become bonded, not just through their mutual rescues but also through a special mind connection. However, Stephanie’s discovery of this new tool-using, sentient alien race now falls onto the radar of a number of xeno-anthropologists who want to study this previously hidden native species. But Stephanie astutely withholds information, as she works to determine who can and cannot be trusted.
