To celebrate and promote books that have been made into movies in April 2013 I had an “At the Movies” themed week. It was no Hollywood but the library did have a certain charm to it.
During this week students could walk down a red carpet, browse the many books that have been made into movies and take part in the “At the Movies” quiz. Over one hundred students took part in the quiz which involved a number of questions whereby students were given hints about books and had to guess the title. The hints varied from who acted in the film version to the characters in the book. To add to the excitement IMC Dun Laoghaire kindly donated some cinema tickets that I used as prizes.
I have no doubt that there are many budding stars among the students in Cluny. In the meantime at least movie week let them be stars for a little while.
