What are you doing on Friday Nights this summer?

I’ll be at the library.  Every Friday, beginning June 20th, I’ll be at the library from 6:30-9:30pm waiting to do ridiculously fun activities and eat delicious food with you!  No two Fridays will be the same.  Here’s the weekly schedule so you can decide which Friday nights you’d like to hang out at the library:                                  

June 20, Fear Factor Challenge & Game Night-Come ready to eat more disgusting dishes than anyone else in order to win a prize!  Then, if your stomach allows, play Box Ball.

June 27, Open Mic & Urban Legend Night-In between open mic acts find out if eating PopRocks and Coke at the same time will really make your head explode! (Subject to change if there are not enough performers lined up).

July 4-HOLIDAY!  Library closed.

July 11, Big Bug Movie Night-Watch old, cheesy, and scary bug-themed horror movies.  Projected onto the wall in the Teen Reading Room.  Crunch some buggy snacks.

July 18, Chocolate Party & Mix CD Swap-Bring your favorite snack to dip into vats of chocolate…No double dipping!  Also, if you please, bring a mix CD of your making.  We’ll play them while we eat.  Everyone who brings a mix can choose someone else’s to take home with them.

July 25, Open Mic & Bug Masquerade-Dress up like a bug, or make bug masks with us, for this open mic night!  Don’t want to dress up like a bug?  Dress up like a pirate!  Or whatever you’re feeling.  Best costume gets a prize!

August 1, Rock Band Contest-Get two friends and start practicing a song for this night.  We don’t necessarily care how accurate you are.  It’s all about stage presence!  Costumes are optional, but recommended!

August 8, Zombie/Thriller Night-Come dressed as a zombie.  Learn the Michael Jackson Thriller dance.  Watch fast zombies and slow zombies attack.  On screen, not in real life, thank goodness.  Fast zombies are terrifying!

August 15, Open Mic-Last Late Night and Open Mic of the summer.  Come support local performers!

**Interested in any of these events?  Please e-mail me ( to sign up for specific dates or sign up in the Program Binder at the Library’s Circulation Desk!

(Bring your Summer Reading Program Passport with you and get it stamped!  Stamps = chances to win prizes in our weekly drawings!  Don’t know about this?  Ask Kelly or Beth at the Teen Desk!)

Local Bands/Summer Programming

I’ve gotten a few recommendations for local bands to perform at the summer open mic nights. 

So far, The Marauders, Pita & 65 Watts have been recommended to me.  Any other suggestions of bands I should try to get in touch with?

Teen Performers Needed for Library Open Mic.

The library will be the place to be on Friday nights this summer. Really, I’m not kidding. Beginning Friday June 20, we’ll begin hosting Late Night @ the Library. Each Friday night we will do something different from watching a movie and
making popcorn balls

to eating Salt n Vinegar flavored insects!

Once a month at Late Night we’d like to have an open mic. Bands, creative writing, harmonica, performance, whtaever! It’s up to you.

The tentative dates for the Open Mic nights are June 21, July 25, and August 15. So if you, or anyone you know, might be interested in doing this, get in touch with me! E-mail me, Kelly, at or stop by the library in the afternoon to see me.
