Summer Programs

We have many young adult summer programs planned, and you can call the library (610-789-4440) or stop by to get more information or to sign up. You must be entering grades 6-12 to join any of these programs. There are many other programs for all ages, so be sure to pick up a complete summer schedule when you come to the library!

ONGOING PROGRAMS
1. Teen Beat (summer reading club) runs from June 14 through August 20. Read a book, fill out a slip, and enter to win great weekly prizes. The more you read, the better your chances of winning!

2. We are starting a Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Club, which will meet every Friday at 4:00 for the summer and will hopefully continue into the fall. Gretchen will be the official adult, but Thai will be doing the instructing! You do need a permission slip to be involved in this group. Registration begins June 4, and the first meeting will be on June 25.

3. Sarah will be running two sessions of her Comic and Manga Workshop, where participants will be taught how to create their own characters and write comic books. The dates for these workshops are Mondays, July 12 to August 16, from 3:30 to 5:00 and Tuesdays, July 6 to August 10, from 7:00 to 8:30. Registration begins June 9.

ONE-TIME PROGRAMS
1. Come to our Library Survivor lock-in on Thursday, June 17, from 8:00 p.m. to midnight. You've survived the school year, but can you survive the library??? Charlotte, Sarah, Gretchen, Caitlin, and other librarians have planned all kinds of events to test your physical and mental strength. Registration began on May 14 and permission slips are required.

2. Not going anywhere this holiday? Come to British Invasion Night on Thursday, June 24, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. Explore authors, language, music, films, and (of course) food from our friends across the pond. Bring your favorite music, books, and movies. Gretchen will be hosting this spiffing event! Registration began on May 14.

3. Get in touch with your inner cowboy (or girl) at Cowboy Poetry Night on Monday, June 19 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. Use your writing skills and sense of humor to create some free-range poetry at Gretchen's crazy poetry stations. Then, share your creations at a western poetry reading with trail snacks. Registration begins on July 6.

4. Make your own personal journal and explore journal writing techniques at Sarah's Journal Journeys workshop on Monday, August 2, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. Registration begins on July 6.

5. Our last event of the summer will be Gretchen's Redwall Feast & Fun on Thursday, August 5, from 7:00-8:30 pm. If you like food, this is an event for you (even if you haven't read the books!). The animals of Redwall spend all of their time eating fabulous feast foods, having adventures, and eating some more. And that exactly what we will do at this event, with authentic recipes.
