New fiction and non-fiction in this week!

New titles in this week! Here's a quick preview below. Plus, we've gotten a replacement copy of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell! So if you haven't read it yet, shame on your there's no excuse now!


Yesterday we had 7 teens come out in the rain to make stuff out of Perler Beads. There was a good mix of people that made stuff from patterns, people that used patterns but changed some stuff up, and others that made stuff completely freehand! Thanks to everyone that braved the weather! Someone asked when the next one will be, so I'll try and have an answer to that soon!


Perler Beads and dinosaurs this week!

Wednesday at 3:30, teens in grades 6 to 12 are welcome to stop by Sellers Library and make stuff out of Perler Beads! We'll have lots of patterns on hand, but feel free to make whatever you feel like! Then this Friday night we're showing Jurassic World at 6! Light refreshments will be available.


The Summer I Found You by Jolene Perry

The book The summer I found you was an amazing book. I love the plot and characters, but the thing I love most was how both Kate and Aiden one having lost an arm and the other having type 1 diabetes both connected on a level where they can form a relationship.  Both put their past behind and not let it get in the was of there future. They may have had a rocky beginning, but a beautiful ending for their relationship.

Retro Game Day @ Municipal!

Last Tuesday we had 12 teens show up and play some old, old, (very old) video games! I brought in a bunch of stuff from my personal collection, including an Atari 7800, an NES, SNES and N64 with a selection of about 10 games each. I think one of the biggest hits of the event would have to be Duck Hunt on the NES! Something about how easy that game is to pick up and play, and how immediate the game play is, make it really attractive to anybody I think. Just pick up the Zapper, aim and shoot! Next up would probably be Contra (with the 30 guy code of course!).

Two hours went by really quickly! It was so great to see so many teens try out these gaming consoles from before they were even born, and even better, having a good time with their friends! Oh, and below I have some pictures from the event, but in keeping with the spirit of retro gaming, I took all the photos on my Game Boy Camera, which was a device you plugged in to the original black and white Game Boy!
