Some Friendly Reminders

1. The deadline for the short film contest is this coming monday! Those of you working on short films should get that finished up and posted on YouTube. If you haven’t already, make sure you let Kelly know that you’ve made a film for our contest so we make sure to find it on YouTube.

2. Pita plays at the library tomorrow night! Let’s call it a Pita and Pizza party.

3. Birdwatching will happen again next wednesday. We had some success this week! (If there is rain on Birdwatching days the program still takes place we just find ways to participate inside).

4. Shelf construction has now been completed in the teen room. Changes in book locations for the YA department may be taking place over the next few weeks. If you can’t find something come ask at the YA desk!

5. When you come in to play video games, don’t forget to bring your library card and your white gaming card. If you still don’t have your own library card… ASK! If you’re old enough to be in the teen room you’re old enough to have your own library card.

6. There are still five spots available for the Saturday, August 2nd Super Smash Bros. Brawl Tournament. Come to the teen desk to sign up. The monthly tournament sign-ups will be available only before each individual tournament to make sign ups fair. If you don’t get to sign up during pre-registration in the first 32 slots come to the tournament anyways just in case pre-registrants don’t make it. Open gaming will be available on the X-Boxes during tournaments.

That’s all I can think of right now.

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, Creatures, 2:30-3:30:  Join Beth as she reads aloud from All Creatures Great and Small, a book about a veterinarian.  Then get set loose on a scavenger hunt that will send you all over the library!

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.

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?
