Nintendo Night and Super Smash Bros!

Last Friday night we had 28 teens come to the library for Nintendo Night! Of them, 22 signed up to compete in our first Super Smash Bros for Wii U tournament. It was a noisy, fierce competition, and in the end Sarah came in first with Roy, winning a Hyrule map puzzle and a $25 gift card to Gamestop! Alex was really feeling it with Shulk and came in second place, and Aaron took home third (also with Shulk!).

When people weren't competing, we had multiple TVs set up with older Nintendo systems. Duck Hunt was getting a lot of play on the old NES! One table started just drawing a lot too, which was really cool! It was a really great night and we had a lot of fun! Our next gaming tournament will be for Pokemon at the Municipal Library on July 7.


Summer Reading Club!

We're a week into this year's Summer Reading Club, and I just wanted to take a moment and point out that if you go to our website's teen page, you can fill out an online form instead of doing the paper one that we hand out at the library. Either way you want to do it is up to you, but don't forget that for every five books you read you'll get a prize, a free book off our cart. You'll also be entered into the weekly prize giveaway! The Upper Darby Library teen page is linked below:


Read comics, books, magazines, manga, whatever you want to read!  And don't forget that next week we'll have back to back craft programs at Sellers and Municipal Libraries! Next Tueday, the 30th, we'll be doing Perler Beads at Municpal at 3:00. Then on Wednesday we'll be making superhero necklaces from Shrinky Dinks! Both programs are drop-ins, so stop on by!

Rocking Away Fines!

Last Thursday we had 9 teens show up to lower their overdue fines by playing Rock Band! While the attendance is a little lower than usual, 8 out of the 9 patrons had their fines completely erased during the event! In three hours we got rid of $100 of overdue fines, so I think that can still be considered a big success! Thanks to everyone who came in to get their fines done!
