The summer comes to an end, but the fun continues!

The summer comes to an end, but the fun continues! Throughout the school year we will have Teen Book Club, the 16+ Book Club for older teens and adults, Teen Advisory Board (TAB) and Early Release Gaming days.

The next 16+ Book Club meets at 7:30 August 25th. We will be discussing Black and White by Malorie Blackman. Copies of the next book, Kaffir Boy by Mark Mathabane will be handed out on August 25th and discussed September 22nd. If you miss the August book club and would like to attend September, please contact Librarian Jane Dance for more information.

We are very excited to welcome author Tracy Deebs to our Teen Book Club September 20th, 6:30-7:30. She will be discussing her new book Tempest Rising. Jane has just a couple copies left, so if you are interested please stop in soon!! All reports indicate this is an excellent book. I am looking forward to reading it myself!

Jane and I are pleased to continue the Early Release Gaming days. The first day will be September 14th from 2-3:30 in the Teen Room. We will have the Wii and the Playstation 2 set up, as well as the good old GameCubes! We are always open to suggestions if you have a favorite game. Speaking of suggestions, the TAB group meets September 20th. They help Ms Jane plan teen events. New members are aways welcome.

Further events in the works, include the Teen Halloween Party, planned for the October 28th. More details to follow in the next blog!

Until then...have a great school year and see you at the Library!

The End of Global Adventures

Going Global, Staying Connected has brought many fun adventures. Murder Mystery was a big success last week, thanks to the hard work and dramatic talents of Ms Jane, David Sharp and all our fabulous teens! We have had a wide range of events this summer; everything from Open Gaming to Zumba!

This week we will be hosting A Taste of India. Indian snacks and refreshments will be served while we learn a little Belly Dancing and how to wrap a Sari. We will also get Henna Tattoos! Last year, my Henna Butterfly turned out beautiful and lasted for days!! It seems like a perfect end to the summer. Please remember to turn in the last of your reading logs and drawing slips by August 8th. Remember - we have some excellent prizes to give away, such as a NOOK and a Membership to Crazy Skates!

At the August Teen Book Club, we will discuss Full Tilt  by Neal Shusterman. Please feel free to come by and visit with us!
