Georgetown Texas Public Library

The best little library in Texas. We like books. And tea. And coffee, the internet, and comics. But also books.

I figured I’d better write the book rather than the episode. (x)

Hello, MOCKINGJAY teaser trailer!

Collect books, even if you don’t plan on reading them right away. Nothing is more important than an unread library.

i got my bachelor’s almost two years ago now, and i think i am finally read to take the dive into graduate school. 

i really want to study library and information science.  (i want to be a librarian :P) 

i am really nervous because i’ve heard that this field doesn’t have a great outlook job wise, money wise, etc. 

my main following on here is book lovers so i was just wondering if any of you have studied something similar or know somebody studying library and information sciences? 

let me know! i am really afraid, but also really excited (: 

Signal boost! Tumblarians, do you have any insight?

Peeta Mellark: Spirit of Strength

Capitol Couture has been waiting eagerly for the next wave of incredible images of our cherished elite, and here they are! Fresh from the excitement of the most eventful Quarter Quell to date, we are thrilled and honored to present the new Capitol Citizen Living Portraits.

As our Quarter Quell victors, Peeta Mellark and Johanna Mason hold the distinct honor of being the first Capitol citizens featured within a Living Portrait.  Peeta stands tall and true in his Capitol Citizen Living Portrait, his matte leather Unconditional ensemble showcasing a stone-like texture and channeling the victor’s quiet strength, completed by shirt and shoes courtesy of Maison Martin Margiela. The paper collar piece, designed by David Mason, mirrors the sculptural elements in Johanna’s dress and gives a stern ambiance to the baker’s son. With an unprecedented two victories under his belt, Peeta is no longer the boy who bravely faced the 74th Hunger Games, but a true Capitol hero.   

Citizens can witness the artist’s hand-selected series of Living Portraits in person at SOCA this summer.
