The Lego Club meets the second Saturday of the month except in July and December. Legos are provided, just bring your imagination! Open to Children from ages 2 to 13. Duplo blocks will be available for children under 4 years of age.
The Second Saturdays event series launches at 7 p.m. with a Beatles sing-along and music performance by the Beatles tribute band Nowhere Men and food and drink available for purchase. The library will remain open during the event.
Teen Advisory Council (TAC) is composed of teens ages 12-17 who provide vital feedback, creativity, and assistance under the direction of the Teen Librarian. Members can earn volunteer credit and make a difference by attending monthly meetings, helping to planevents, recommending purchases for the collection, writing reviews, helping design library displays and artwork, and assisting at library events for children and teens. Snacks are provided, and we cap off our meetings with a friendly game of Apples to Apples or Headbands. This program is free and sponsored by the Friends of the Library, meeting at the Main Library in the Barbara J. Pearson Community Room.
Teens and tweens 11 to 17 can attend a special (and free) DIY Club event featuring guest artist Lernie Bueler who will paint fantastic, personalized henna designs for guests. These designs are applied with a special henna paste, which is not permanent, but can stay on the skin for up to 1-3 weeks. While waiting for your design, browse through our literature on the art of mehndi, practice sketching your own designs, and learn to make henna paste for home use. Teen DIY Club is a monthly pop-up makerspace for teens and tweens. Makerspaces are places where the tools for learning and creating different arts and crafts projects are provided. Makers are invited to make what they love, share what they know, and to learn something new. This program is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
Teens and tweens ages 11 to 17 are invited to gather with their friends and enjoy a variety of board games, party games, and video games, including Rock Band, Wii games (including Just Dance 2015), Apples to Apples, Wits and Wagers, and others. Snacks served while supplies last. This program is free and sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
