Last Wednesday we had 5 teens participate in our Dance Dance Revolution tournament! We played Dance Dance Revolution II on the Wii in four-player mode for some warmup, then went down to 2-players for the actual tournament. In the end, Sarah got the first place prize, a $10 Gamestop gift card. Hurit came in second and Mary came in third, both winning candy prizes. We also had some music games to play just for fun, such as the strange Donkey Konga games on Gamecube, played with bongo controllers, and Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, which is exactly what it sounds like, DDR played with remixes of Mario music! There were also several games of Connect 4 played during downtime! Thanks to everyone that came out to play some DDR!
For Teen Tech Week this year, we had Chromebooks set up at Municipal Library with tabs open to a few popular meme making sites such as memegenerator.com and www.keepcalm-o-matic.co.uk. After teens had made their custom meme, we flipped the image and printed it out on iron transfer paper, then put them on t-shirts! Awesome wearable art! We had 11 teens show up and make stuff to wear home! Someone even came to the library the next day wearing the shirt they made!
This list of "new books" is actually a couple of weeks old, as I had accidentally left it in draft format instead of publishing it! But anyhow! It's most likely new to you! Click below for the full list of the latest additions to the teen collection!
