The Odds Are In Your Favor At Metro Libraries


Movie theaters will be able to stave off hunger and catch fire again when the film “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” open on November 22.

Fans of the book/movie series will be able to ramp up the excitement early by attending any or all of the Metropolitan Library System’s Catching Fire events in November.

“We haven’t had so much fun with a book series since the height of Harry Potter-mania,” said Metropolitan Library System’s Young Adult Services Coordinator Emily Williams.  “The events we have planned cover a lot of ground, from parties to visits from Science Museum Oklahoma to book talks, and from a lock-in to a trivia contest.  It’s all going to be fun, and of course we have the Hunger Games series of books in print and in audio and digital formats.  We’ve even got DVDs of the first movie, if you need a reminder of what happened.”

Here is the schedule of Catching Fire events at MLS libraries all through the month of November:

Catching Fire Party

Science Museum Oklahoma: The Science of Catching Fire

8th Annual Downtown Library After Dark Lock-In
