Summer Program Highlights 2014

Summer vacation is nearly over, and the spectacular line up of teen summer programs has come to end. We had a drawing workshop, a photography workshop/exhibit, a forensics workshop, a collection development shopping trip, a European swords program, a robots program, a planetarium show, and movies, plus the Minecraft Club met every week, and the Teen Think Tank met twice.  Below are some pictures from a few of the programs that were here this summer. The trip to Barnes & Noble with the Teen Think Tank was great fun, and we will probably do it again next summer. Each TTT member chose books for the Library's collections that were of interest to them, most of which have been checked out. If you think you might like to be on the Teen Think Tank (the Library's teen advisory board), just let me know - we are looking to add more members.
Programs coming up:
There will be no Minecraft Club meeting the week of August 25th. The final Tuesday night meeting for summer Minecraft is August 19th. The Minecraft Club will be moving their meeting time back to Wednesday afternoons, starting on September 3rd.
There is a free PSAT practice test provided by Kaplan, scheduled for Saturday, September 20. Register online at Kaplan Test Prep.
Coming up September 25 & 27, we will be showing the movie, The Fault In Our Stars (see movie page on this blog for more information).
Also, there is a free College Financial Aid workshop scheduled for Thursday, October 23, at 7 PM.
