Round Rock New Neighbors is a social organization of women welcoming women in the Round Rock area since 1978. Both "new" and "old" neighbors are welcome. For more information: [Barnes & Noble requires that RRNN's book club be open to the public, so you do not need to be an RRNN member to attend book club, and both men and women are welcome and do attend. ]

Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently in theaters. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

Great and uplifting film!

Book Buzz 2016 at Round Rock Public Library

I'm looking forward to February's Ellis Island discussion but also wanted to get the word out: registration is now open for Book Buzz 2016:  Discovering New Stars, at Round Rock Public Library.  The event will be Tuesday, February 9 at 7:00 P.M.

This Buzz will be very much like last year's: attendees will hear the inside scoop on forthcoming books from our Penguin Random House rep--and everyone will get a free "Keep Calm and Read On" tote bag and a pre-publication sampler book.  We'll also have refreshments (I understand that the cheesecake will be back by popular demand) and drawings for door prizes.

You can register online here: (the link is also on the library's Facebook page).  Or, if you'd rather, call the reference desk at 512.218.7000 and we can complete the registration for you.  Hope to see many of you there!
