Frame by Frame by Cassadee Pope. Cassadee Pope won over millions of TV viewers to win the third season of The Voice. Three of her performances rose to the top of the iTunes charts. Now she unveils her solo debut, which includes the single Wasting All These Tears.

Let’s Be Still by the Head and the Heart. Having gained confidence following the release of their 2010 debut, The Head and the Heart build upon their breakaway success with the release of their sophomore album, which showcases their musical growth. Includes the single Shake.

Mechanical Bull by the Kings of Leon. After three years of touring and working on other projects, Kings of Leon are set to release their sixth studio album. The album was recorded in the band’s Nashville studio and includes the single Supersoaker.

Nothing Was the Same by Drake. The Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum hip-hop superstar’s third full-length album features the single Hold On, We’re Going Home.

It follows the hit single Started from the Bottom, which peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100.

Paradigm Shift by Korn. Korn moves away from the dub step and rock fusion of 2011’s The Path of Totality while promising to fuse their dual guitar sound with a fresh approach to electronics. The album also marks the return of guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch.

25 Years Young

Meghann : 22 March, 2013 2:11 pm : Authors, Books, DVD, Fun stuff, Library program, Movie, music

amanniversaryOn March 26th the Amelia Branch Library will be celebrating its 25th birthday. For some unfamiliar with all that the Amelia Branch has to offer that may seem a long time – too long to stay relevant. Blasphemy! I say to them.

The library is wearing its age well. At the Amelia Branch you can download the latest e-book to your device, put a hold on the new Hobbit movie, make a work of art from Peeps, and listen to some creepy cold case stories from a local author. We have computers with internet access, Playaway Views which allow you to take television shows anywhere on a preloaded player and databases that connect you to everything from your ancestors with Ancestry Library Edition to a fixed lawn mower with Small Engine Repair Reference Center.

The Amelia Branch Library has never looked so good! In fact 25 isn’t so bad. Check out these other things that are also 25 years young.

“A Brief History of Time” by Stephen Hawking.

The Hubble Space Telescope is used for the first time.

Laser Eye Surgery is invented.

Crocodile Dundee II, Die Hard, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Beetlejuice appeared in theaters.

Sweet Child of Mine by Guns n’ Roses and Don’t Worry Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin topped the music charts.

If you’re a fan of our library, or if you just want to see some old goofy pictures of us, stop by the Amelia Branch on March 26th for our birthday open house.
