by Jilliane Yawney - 0 Comment(s)

"Beastly", the new movie starring Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer was released Friday, ranking 3rd in Box Office Hits for the weekend. If you haven't heard already, it's the modern re-telling of 'Beauty and the Beast', and it's getting some really great reviews. What's more, all our copies (and E-Copies) of the original book keep whizzing off the shelves, so put yours on hold now!

CPL's TeenZone Blog, Movie Maniacs Blog and Interact PR are teaming up to bring you one 'beast' of a contest to celebrate the release of the movie!

To win one of our book prizes, just comment on this blog post with the title of one OTHER novel by 'Beastly' author Alex Flinn, which you can find through the library catalogue. Make sure to leave your full name (the one you use for your Library Card) so we can contact you and get you your prize!

You can also come to Crowfoot Library, Shawnessy Library, or the 2nd Floors at Central and Fish Creek Libraries this weekend (March 11-13), to pick up some cool 'Beastly' swag, including posters, notebooks, and some phenomenal bag charms! Come to the desk and say "BEASTLY" -- prizes will be given out on a first come, first served basis.
