Teen Holiday Party

The library is excited to be doing a Teen Holiday Party. We will be enjoying cookies, cocoa & cider while we play games (which are promised to incite laughter).

We ask that you bring a wrapped “White Elephant” gift to exchange. Don’t know what a White Elephant gift is? It can be something you find, or perhaps purchase. It has to be goofy, unique, low cost (think under a $1), and off-the-wall. If you can’t find anything at home, I suggest a thrift store-there are some odd items! I know, I did my shopping already 😉

 

So..here are the details, you know, the important stuff.

Monday, December 4th 3-5 pm

Summer @ the Library

 

 

 

Summer has been busy here at the library! If you’ve stopped in you have noticed the computers are often in use, there are kids coloring/reading/playing/ using wifi. We’ve hosted a number of special events (check the calendar, there are more to come!). Perhaps my favorite thing about summer at the library is the Summer Reading Program-which has been in full swing this year. I am so happy when kids bring back their reading logs, choose a prize and get a new log to fill out. It means they’ve been reading!  We’ve had wonderful community support so there are lots of ‘certificates” from local establishments. I also love it when kids ask me for a book recommendation-or better yet, share one with me!

I’ve had the opportunity to spend more time with the teens this year. I have very much enjoyed getting to know them and planning a Divergent themed party for them. My favorite comments were “This was so much fun” and “We should do this more often.” I enjoy watching them interact with each other, make new friends, and build relationships with those in their community. The icing on the cake, a good book discussion with a group of teens!

Summer is flying by, but there is still time to get in on the fun. It’s never too late to sign up for Summer Reading (up until August 31). There are still more events on our calendar-including Professor Marvel, our Solar Eclipse Lunch Party and some special guests for the AGC Book Discussion Group. Check out our calendar for more information-or find us on facebook for updates on what’s happening @ the Library. We hope to see you this summer!
