Stop buy and design an artistic masterpiece using soda can tabs. Make jewelry, belts, or wall hangings. Decorate an item from the library’s “stuff bag” or bring something from home to decorate. We’ll have fun and snacks.

On Friday June 15, teens will be treated to a Karaoke Party at the library. The party begins at the HQ library before 5:30. We close at 5:30 so get here early. If the doors are locked, go to the back of the building to the parking lot. You will be let in the double doors until 5:45. Our program is called, “Singing the Night Away.” Those who don’t want to sing alone can join the group singing. Individuals with singing talent will sing their own songs. We’ll have a light supper: grilled hot dogs, chips, drinks and s’mores. The more the merrier. Dancing is also a choice for those who prefer to dance. See you on Friday!!!!!
