The Tobin library ,located next to Garner, is one of the many places were children go to have fun, read, and talk to friends. The library has a Teen Day every Wednesday. The Tobin Library aids offer arts & crafts, games, and delious snacks. “I go to the library to have fun and enjoy times that I didn’t have with my friends-plus I have to wait for my mom there everyday,” said Gabby Pena (8). Since the library closes at 6 Garner students love to wait because of all the things they can do. “The library is fun because of Wednesdays, and all my friends go there, so I like to catch up,” says Alyssa Rienard (8). Going to the library is certainly one of the many things eighth graders will miss when they depart from middle school and move on to high school since the majority have been going there since their first year at Garner.

Last year was amazing! 2011 gave us many great memories. Some of the greatest things that 2011 presented to us were the amazing movies. In honor of the great movies we looked back at the best ones.
This year will have very big shoes to fill when it your talking about movies; however, I don’t think at all it will be complicated to top 2011. 2012 has already announced the huge news on nearly all the new movies coming out. This includes The Avengers, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, GI Joe:Retaliation. With these movies and more it’ll be a great year for movies.
I went to ask some students on their opinion when it came to movies. I went to 7th grade lunch and saw Jakob Flores who said, “My favorite movie was Cowboys Vs Aliens; it has alot of action.” After I met up with Jennifer Burrowes to see what the best actors of 2011 was, she replied, ” The best actor was Johnny Depp, because Pirates Of The Carribean On Strangers Tide was really good.” After I was finished with her, I interveiwed Demetrius Walker, and asked him what his favorite movie of 2011 was and he stated, “My favorite movie was The Smurfs.” I then asked him who the best actor of 2011 was and he said, “My favorite actor is George Lopez because he was funny in The Smurfs.”
This year is definetly going to great and extravagant, and the movies will be even better. Nomatter if you like acton, comedy, or horror your in for a great time.
