    Do you have a story to tell?

    Learn the art of electronic book publishing and be ready to experiment with a variety of media (embedded pictures, music, movies, links) to help tell your tale. In this 4-week program, we’ll focus on helping you craft a strong story and turn it into a multidimensional ebook, downloadable from the library’s website. Please come with a written story (even if it’s rough).

  • Computer Hackers (Grades 6-12)
    Wednesday, August 20, 2014 - 3:00pm
    Youth Services Activity Room

    It's not what you think. A hacker is someone who enjoys building, rebuilding, and modifying software; someone who enjoys testing limits and seeing what is possible. That’s what we’ll do, using tiny computers called Arduino (ar-dwee-no) microcontrollers. We will program them to do a number of cool things using LED lights, circuits, sensors and lasers. This program is made possible by a generous donation from PotashCorp.

  • Mocha & More: If I Stay (grades 6-12)
    Friday, August 29, 2014 - 7:00pm

    Mia is 17. She has a quirky, yet wonderful family, a rockstar boyfriend and a brilliant future as a cellist. Her life is just beginning. But on a snowy day in February, taking a drive with her family, Mia loses nearly everything. Separated from her body and in a coma, Mia reminisces about her life and possible future as she makes the ultimate decision to either stay or go.

    Remember we meet at the Starbucks on Cherry and your first drink is on us. The first 7 teens to check-in at the Youth Services desk get a free copy of the book. Heads up: This book has a suggested reading audience of grades 7-12.
    Friday, August 29, 7-8 p.m., Starbucks on Cherry
