You know you loved those Berenstain Bears books, and I bet your kids do, too (even if your tastes have changed). A sad announcement, then: creator Jan Berenstain has passed away.

Did you know there is a librarian-superhero comic? Rex Libris has been around for a while and guess what? He's gonna be a movie star soon! I'll be one of the first in line for tickets.

What if The Hunger Games were real? I would not last very long, tell you that much.

Who is lurking in your library, watching graphic adult videos? Inside Edition is on the case! This video is worth watching just for the enunciation, guys.
