PLEASE NOTE that sessions will run with breaks rather than consecutively as in the past.

Start 2012 off right! Encourage your teen to try the teen book discussion. We also have one for tweens (grades 5-8) that was highlighted last week. Teens (grades 9-12) are welcome to join us on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. On January 11 we are discussing “Marcelo in the Real World” by Francisco X. Stork. Teens unprepared to discuss the book are welcome to sit in and see what we are all about. We always have plenty of candy and chat.

Here’s the final reminder that the 2nd Annual Jack Frost Jamboree is right around the corner. Once again, we’ll have crafts and games for kids as well as EMS providing snowshoes sized for a myriad of ages. We’ll have a new golf course winding through the stacks as well as refreshments for most of the day. This spectacular family event will take place on Saturday, January 21st, from 10:30am-2:30pm even though our doors will be open for our usual Saturday hours from 10am-3pm. Take advantage of the flurry of activities and stop by for all or part of the day. Our ‘rain’ date is Saturday, January 28th.
