Christmas Picks: More to watch

In recent posts we’ve shared what one staff member at a time recommends. This post is sharing some smaller recommendations that we still wanted to share.

Anni: White Christmas is our family’s favorite holiday movie.  I had to purchase
additional copies for both girls when they moved out so they could continue the
tradition.

Deb: It’s a Wonderful Life is a really heartwarming movie. It has been redone several times with different actors but the original is still the best. The black and white is still my most favorite version too.

Katy: Gremlins is always a great Christmas movie.

Suzanne: We love the old classics like It’s A Wonderful Life, The Miracle on 34th Street, Holiday Inn and White Christmas, but Elf is a modern classic that we also love.

Patti: As we string popcorn and cranberries for our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving, we enjoy watching Miracle on 34th Street.

Heather: If you haven’t gotten to know my taste by now then my recommendation will come as a shock. I love the Tim Burton movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. It’s one of those movies I’ll watch at any time during the year because it just makes me happy. I love Halloween and this movie mixes Halloween with Christmas in a way that does give you balance. I also love the music. Danny Elfman gave this movie a great soundtrack!

So now you’ve heard some of our favorite Christmas movies. What are some of yours?

From those of us at Eckhart Public Library (including the Willennar Genealogy Center and Third Place Teen library) we hope you have a wonderful, fun, and safe holiday season.

Anni can be found at Circulation and also heads up at least one of the EPL book clubs. She always has a book to recommend and a smile to go with.

Deb can also be found at Circulation, but works behind the scenes as well and smiles no matter how stubborn some of our technology might be at times.

Suzanne works in our Genealogy building and is always ready to help.

Patti not only works with our EMOS (Eckhart Mobile Outreach Service) but also handles the advertisements you see in the newspaper and posters in the main building. She always has a smile and something to recommend.

Katy can be found in more than one of our departments at EPL and if you like some of the not-so-normal seeming materials she’s a great one to ask for recommendations and she also works with our EPL Charlie Chat blog here.

Heather, that’s me, I work up at Circulation a help with Book A Librarian and I love some of the weirder materials too. I love giving and receiving movie and book recommendations.
