New arrivals for the week of August 26, 2014
Belle
Blended
Legends of Oz
The Love Punch

Greetings everyone,

Welcome back everyone! Campus has filled up and the hustle and bustle is in full swing again. This week's biggest new arrivals are: "Belle" (w/Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Emily Watson, Tom Wilkinson, etc), "Blended" (w/Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore), "Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return" (w/voices of Lea Michele, Dan Aykroyd, Patrick Stewart, Kelsey Grammer, etc) and "The Love Punch" (w/Emma Thompson and Pierce Brosnan). Once again, we got a lot of new TV stuff: Criminal Minds S9, Elementary S2, Haven S4, Now and Again S1, Revenge S3, Sons of Anarchy S6, Walking Dead S4 and Without a Trace S6. We also got seasons 3 and 4 of the gritty French crime-drama, "Spiral". Lastly, we picked up a copy of Wayne Wang's follow-up to "Smoke" (1995), "A Thousand Years of Good Prayers" (2007). You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

We are back to our regular hours now: Monday-Friday (10-10), Saturday (11- 10) and Sunday (noon-10)

Louie Psihoyos' "The Cove" (2009), a documentary about dolphin fishing in a heavily guarded cove in Japan, is the top renting title in our Environmental & Social Issues section. "More Than Honey" (2012), an in-depth look at honeybee colonies, was the next most popular followed by "Forks Over Knives" (2011), which looks at the effects of animal-based and processed foods in our diets. We have well over 100 titles in the ESI section (and more being added regularly) for anyone interested in subjects related to alternative energy, child slavery, sustainable food, pollution, animal rights, etc. Fwiw, other great local resource for Environmental issues are The Green Observer, Illinois Green Business Association, and Students for Environmental Concerns. Here are the Top Titles in the Environmental & Social Issues section:
1 COVE, THE
2 MORE THAN HONEY
3 FORKS OVER KNIVES: EXTENDED
4 FRACKNATION
5 FOOD, INC.
6 FORKS OVER KNIVES
7 GMO OMG
8 PANDORA'S PROMISE
9 AGE OF STUPID, THE
10 ESCAPE TO CANADA
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
