This summer we’re going to talk about some books that have been adapted into films, and you’re going to help us pick which! All books and movies listed are available electronically thanks to Hoopla, Kanopy, and the Ohio Digital Library.
We have lots of ways for you to vote. You can vote for up to 4 book to movie combos by commenting here or on Facebook. We will also have polls for you to vote on via our Twitter, Instagram, and Goodreads.
Voting ends Thursday, May 14 at Midnight!
