One Month Down, One More to Go!

We’ve finished the first month of Summer Reading!  Here’s a brief re-cap of what we’ve done so far:

We have plenty of Superhero Swag left!

  • There are 167 Teens signed up! WOOT, WOOT!

If you haven’t registered yet, come on in!  Look for the light blue cart at either the Teen or Adult Reference desks. Earn sweet prizes for reading!  We still have five more weekly raffles for $25 gift cards and two GRAND PRIZES of awesome gift bags! Don’t forget, you still have a month to turn in all yo’ stuff!

  • On MARVELous Mondays, we’ve watched: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk (the Edward Norton version), Iron Man 2, and Thor.

  • Addie Afable, of Artistic Dragon Studios, joined us for the June Anime Club meeting and showed us the differences between drawing anime superheroes and comic book superheroes.

FYI: Some of the projects are VERY MESSY!  Make sure to get permission before you wreck your parents’ kitchen!

  • We had our FIRST EVER Teen Writer’s Group meeting (formerly known as the Poetry Slam)!  Our next meeting is Wednesday, July 22nd from 4:30-5:30 p.m.  Feel free to stop by to share some of your work!
