Summer is Wrapping Up

Summer at the library ends next week! With that in mind here’s some of what’s going on.

Act One will continue as usual as we have so much fun every week it seems pointless to change. Jerry and Eli are welcome to stop in since they were so much fun and volunteered so often this summer. Our last scheduled guest actor will be Lauren Yadlosky today.

After two weeks of birdwatching I’ve decided to end creatures with an animal film. I chose a bunch of films and the teens in attendance will get to choose one. Choices are The Black Stallion, Babe, Finding Nemo, Gentle Ben, Dr. Dolittle, Miracle Dogs Too, and All Dogs Go To Heaven. Let me know if there’s some other movie you guys would like to watch and I’ll look for it. We’ll watch half the movie this week and the other half next week.

The Genres subject this week will be Fantasy. Any requests for next week? Want to watch a fantasy movie? Let me know.

Teens signed up for summer reading should have gotten their invitations in the mail by now. Call or email if you know you’re coming!

This Week: In Programming

Hi all,

It’s Saturday, and I’m working at the circ desk so I thought I would let you all know what’s happening in the Teen Room this week.  (That desk gets busy!  Now it’s Sunday and I’m finishing this post!) 

Monday, Tune In: Music Sharing, 1pm:  This week’s theme is musicals.  So join us to listen to new showtunes and recommend your favorites!  Bring your CDs, mp3 players or even records!

Monday, Metamorphosis, 3:30pm:  Join me in learning about Post Secret and making postcards, because everyone loves getting real mail, right?  We’ll use scraps from old magazines, duct tape, rubber stamps, glitter, and make stamps using potatoes (potato printing!).  Make as many postcards as you want!

Tuesday, Act One, 2:30pm:  Act up with Beth and a member of the PTHS Theatre Troupe!

Tuesday, Writers Studio, 6pm-?:  Do you need someone to offer feedback on a story you’ve been writing, but you don’t want to give it to your mom or bestfriend to read?  Cme to the Writers Studio.  We’ll meet every other Tuesday for the rest of the summer to workshop your writing.  Who knows, maybe you’ll turn that short story into a novel and end up shopping it around to publishers.

Wednesday, Creatures, 2:30pm:  Read from All Creatures Great and Small with Beth.  Then scavenge the library for more books about animals.

Wednesday, Game On! Tweens 4-6pm & Teens 6:30-8:30pm:  Open gaming with the 360s and the Wii.  Snacks will be provided to fuel your fury!

Thursday, Genres, 2:30-3:30pm:  Do you have an (over-)active imagination?  Genres is the program for you.  Read and write your own adventure story, or work with a partner, during Beth’s one hour program!

Friday, Late Night @ the Library, 6:30-9:30pm:  BIG Bug Movie Night!  Drink Rootbeer or Coke floats, snack on bug gummies, and watch Them and Mysterious Island with me!

Saturday, Project Design, 11-1pm:  Come make unique clothes out of recycled fabrics and any other materials you can think of.  We’d like to have a fashion show of all the creations at our end of summer Summer Reading Wrap Party.

The library isn’t about shushing anymore!  So stop by this week and get creative with us! 

(Super Smash Bros Brawl Tournament info will be posted in a few short days–so keep checking back!!)

Thursday Afternoon Movie & Friday Late Night!

It’s going to be 87 degrees tomorrow afternoon!  So come get cool in the library.  At 4pm we’ll be watching a movie, either Becoming Jane or Whale Rider.  We’ll leave it up to a vote. 
















Don’t forget to come by again on Friday night for Late Night @ the Library.  This week is Urban Legend night!  We’ll see who knows the most urban legends, learn which urban legends are actually true, play a game using our camera phones, eat Pop Rocks, and watch Alligator–because you’ve always wondered what happens when an alligator gets flushed down the toilet, right?!?!

Movies for tomorrow

Some people have been asking what we’re watching for Teen Movie Lounge tomorrow. We have two options. Lars and the Real Girl or a movie that’s just a little different – one of the old Indiana Jones movies. I won’t explain Indiana Jones movies because I figure everyone already knows espeically with the newest one just coming out.

lars and the real girl

Lars and the Real Girl stars Ryan Gosling. He decides to buy a doll on the internet and make it his girlfriend.

“The search for true love begins outside the box.”

So we have two different options because we want you guys to tell us which movie you would like to watch! Comment here on this blog post if you’d like but we’ll probably have everyone vote before we turn the movie on.

Don’t forget we’ll have popcorn to go along with the movie tomorrow!

Also, even though you should all be in school right now, don’t forget that we have our game on programs for tweens (6th to 8th grade) from 3:3o to 5:3o after school today and for teens (9th to 12th grade) from 6 to 8:3o tonight. Stop by! [We just picked up awesome snacks for those of you who come tonight.]

It’ll be huge.
