You are here
With the cold winter weather approaching and the days getting shorter, it’s the time of year where I especially enjoy curling up on the couch and watching a movie after a long day of work. The holidays are just around the corner, and that means the Christmas DVDs are sure to fly off the shelves here at FRVPLD. Don’t forget, though, that you can stream movies for free with your library card now that we have Hoopla! Hoopla has variety of Christmas movies available for all ages that you can stream right away.

If the recent hurricanes left you wanting to know more about the history of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the titles that follow are an easy place to start.
Next week brings Thanksgiving, which traditionally marks the start of the Holiday season. Since you’ll probably have more than one occasion to get your party on over the next month and a half, it’s probably a good time to start brushing up on your cocktail basics. As our blog’s resident cocktail nerd, I’m listing some fine titles to explore to find your signature seasonal cocktail and impress your guests and friends with your bartending skills. Warning, if you get too good at making cocktails, you’ll be in charge of drinks at every party you go to!
I, like many of you I'm sure, have been eagerly awaiting cooler weather; fall weather. Apple picking, cookie baking, leaf raking, see your breath in the air weather. Hot cider, sweaters and soup! I want to step outside and NOT immediately start sweating. So although the fall equinox came and went...late September and early October were still too hot for my taste. It seems to have finally passed. I love crisp, fall days when I can crank up the oven, get some dough rising while I prep soup.
Last night, teens got creative and used frosting and candy to tranform regular vanilla and chocolate cupcakes into creepcakes! They made ghosts, vampires, spiders, mummies, pumpkins, and monsters. Take a look at the photos below to check out the creepy and cute designs!
“By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.
