Hey everyone, I was just at Book Expo America, and I had an amazing time! Here’s a pic from a panel with YA authors Melissa De La Cruz, Kendare Blake, Alyson Noel, Lauren Oliver, and Veronica Roth. For the many Divergent fans out there, have no fear, Veronica Roth’s new series will start in January 2017! The first book is called Carve the Mark and you KNOW we’ll have it at the library.

A taste of summer…

SloganThe 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!
