Teens @ the Library

At the 'Make It Hot' program teens made their own salsa, tasted 10 varieties & picked their favorites (Spike's), made and baked pretzels (check out the designs--the owl and heart turned out very well--and made felt scarves. They made cupcakes and played games, including 'Survive Jeopardy and Fell Like a Millionaire at the 'To 2010 & Beyond' program. Cupcakes were a favorite of the decade, along with deep fried Twinkies, which they also made.

Volunteer teens helped make the 'Games Galore, Chess & More', a program for younger children, a great success. They taught beginners how to play chess and and helped children learn and play other games, too, including Twister, Uno, Junga, & checkers.

We will be having a games program and a lego program for younger children every month. If you want to volunteer, just see Linda or any staff member.

*Observe No Name Calling Week Jan. 24-29 @ the library. We'll have games, crafts, and books to check out as we call attention to bullying and what we all can do about it.
*Join us for GameFest on Wed. Jan. 26 @ 3 for open play on PlayStation and Wii. Compete in tournaments for prizes. Snacks, too!
