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!

Attention Summer Readers

I hope all of you who signed up for summer reading are still reading! Five prizes are still being drawn weekly. If you haven’t already, turn in slips tracking your minutes read. Even if you haven’t won yet, you could still win a prize at the end of summer reading picnic.


Which reminds me, watch the mail over the next week.  Teens signed up for summer reading will be receiving invitations to the End of Summer Reading Picnic which is coming up soon!  Look for the information for details but I can tell you this: IT’S GONNA BE GOOD!

Feel free to use puppets and props with your story telling.


Start thinking and practicing your story telling skills.

You Need to Know

Next week is the kick off of the summer teen library programs. We have a lot of good things on the schedule throughout the summer. Some of the programs vary depending on the weekly topic so Kelly and I will often announce the topics before hand so that interested teens will know to come on their special week.


All that being said, next week for the first session of Genres we’ll be looking at Horror short stories and novels. Bring your favorite to share or just look at what we’ve got there. And if ghost stories frighten you to the point of peeing your pants…. bring a second pair of underwear. ghosts

Eat Bugs @ Your Library!

Here is a link to all our Teen Summer Programming information.  It’s a two-sided document, so read everything!  The front has all the planned programs (there are more to come).  The back has all info you need to know about our Summer Reading Program, Metamorphosis @ Your Library, and how you can become eligible to enter our weekly and grand prize drawings. 

We have some great stuff planned, like eating bugs
(well, not such intense big bugs and not bug sushi, but you get the idea), screenprinting, acting, gaming, chalk murals, making wallets out of cereal boxes and Friday Late Night @ the Library.  And some other activities that are still in the works, like the open mic nights.  Basically anything that makes us think of metamorphosis, or a profound change in form. 

We’d love to hear what you think, so speak out.
