This Week’s Programs & New CD Spotlight

We have hip AND delicious programs happening this week, so stop and see us!

Monday, Metamorphosis, 3:30-5:30pm:  You know all those t-shirts and tote bags you have with designs on them?  Designs that look like they were painted on?  They were screenprinted and that’s what we’re going to learn how to do today!  I’ll even show you how you can screenprint at home with simple materials so you can make your own t-shirts whenever inspiration strikes!

Tuesday, Act One, 2:30-4:30pm:  Loosen up and act out short plays and play improv games with Beth and an actor who recently graduated from the Peters Township High School Theatre Troupe!

Wednesday, All Ages Game On!, 6-8:30pm:  Come one, come all (ages) to our monthly All Ages Video Game Night.  Brush up on your Brawl skills and sign up for the upcoming tournament.  Or tire out your arm with Boomblox and Rock Band!  Check out our new Xbox 360 games Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground and Stuntman Ignition.  We’ll also have chess boards and playing cards for you to use while you’re waiting your turn at a console.

Thursday, Genres, 2:30-3:30:  Genre-of or pertaining to a particular literary type…such as mysteries, adventure stories, horror, romance.  Listen to Beth read a short story or an excerpt from a  Sci-Fi book.  Then write your own story, on your own or with a partner, that fits into this week’s genre. 

Thursday, Teen Movie Lounge, 4:00-6:00: Every week we watch a movie. This week we have a few choices

We’ll vote on which film to show when you all get here!  Some come get cool in the library and snack on popcorn with us.

Friday, Late Night @ the Library, 6:30-9:30pm:  Two of our favorite things combine this week, chocolate and music.  Come dip fruit and popcorn in melted chocolate, eat cookies, chocolate kisses, chocolate-covered pretzels, and more with us!  We’ll have a chocolate and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-themed trivia contest.  If you get a chance, make a mix CD or tape to bring with you.  We’ll put them all in a box, play some of them during the chocolate sampling, and then everyone who brought a mix gets to pick one out of the box to take home with them.  What could be better than a night of chocolate and new music???

Saturday, Project Design, 11am-1pm:  Come alter t-shirts, learn how to turn plastic grocery bags into fabric, and shrink plastic into jewelry with us!  We’ll also use fabric, boxes, index cards, candy wrappers, and whatever you can think of to make more clothing and accessories.
