The beautiful weather we’ve been having lately was a great taste of summer, so I thought I’d give you an early taste of some summer programs! These are just a few of the 16 events for teens we’ll be offering, so make sure you check our online calendar on May 31 so you can sign up for the ones you want!
Let’s start with Life Size Games – You can hop on a scooter to become a Hungry Hungry Hippo and then stretch yourself playing Giant Jenga. I can’t wait for this one!!!
Then there’s Raspberry Pi 101 – This is a hands-on class, and we’ll get started running the Raspberry Pi computer and working with the built-in programming languages.
Don’t be afraid to Learn to Dance Samba – If you can’t make it to Brazil for the Olympics, come to the library where a professional dance instructor will teach you Rio de Janeiro’s most famous dance, the Samba! Don’t worry, there is no partner required to dance Samba.
Your final taste, and I do mean taste, is the Chocolate Olympics – Try some chocolate trivia, play chocolate games, and get your fill of chocolate.
Can’t wait to unveil the rest of our summer programs!
It’s National Library Week! This year’s theme is “Libraries Transform,” so we’re collecting stories about how Winfield Library has transformed the lives of our patrons. Leave me your story in the comments!
Do you need a map for a report or project? Go to AtoZ Maps Online and log in with your Winfield Library card number. They have pretty much every type of map you can think of, all free and available to be printed or downloaded. Climate change maps, earthquake maps, antique maps, NASA maps, state, country and world maps! Log in now and check it out.
The library has it’s own short version of spring break, Spring Holiday! We will be closed this Friday and Saturday, so whether your break is this week or next week, be sure to come in by Thursday to get all the books, movies, and TV shows you need to get through your spring break.
Going on a road trip? We have audio books, too! Books on CD are great for listening in the car, or try a Playaway, a small MP3 Player preloaded with an entire audio book.
Have a great break!
