In 2013, InfoSoup Librarians challenged all adult library card holders to read books and write reviews in A Year of Reading Dangerously. Because of the success of this year-long program, they are continuing the challenge in 2014 with A Year of Listening Dangerously. Why not broaden your horizons and try a new format? Continue the challenge, and read dangerously this year, with your eyes OR your ears!

This month's movie is a family classic. In 1940s Indiana, 9-year-old Ralphie dreams of his ideal Christmas gift: a genuine Red Ryder 200-shot carbine action air rifle. But when gruff dad and doting mom regularly respond "You'll shoot your eye out!" Ralphie mounts a full-scale Santa-begging campaign. He encounters a slew of calamities from snowsuit paralysis to the dreaded tongue-on-a-frozen-flagpole gambit. Rated PG.
