Teen Craft Club is back!

Posted by kacates on February 4, 2012

After a brief hiatus over the holiday season, the craft club is back in session for 2012! We’ll be meeting this Monday to make yarn-wrapped picture frames. With a few simple supplies and a little patience, you can create beautiful and unique frames that will look great in your room or locker. Or, give them away to someone as a Valentine’s or birthday gift. Hope to see you all there on Monday!

Game Day tomorrow

Posted by kacates on May 10, 2011

Sorry it's been a bit quiet around here lately.  We're gearing up for a great summer reading program, so I've been busy getting that ready.  I'll have an announcement about it soon here on the blog.  For now, though, here's your friendly reminder that tomorrow is our regular Game Day down in the Community Room from 4:00 to 6:00.  Bring your friends and come play Rock Band, Dance Dance Revolution, board games, and more!

Teen Craft Club: Sophisticated Shrinky Dinks

Posted by kacates on April 30, 2011

Remember Shrinky Dinks, those sheets of plastic pictures you could color in, cut out, and shrink in the oven? Well, at this month's Teen Craft Club, we're taking that old kiddie favorite and updating it to create beautiful works of art that you can wear or use as a magnet or keychain. We've got all the supplies you need, so come to the library on Monday, May 2 from 4 to 5:30 and get creative!
