World War Z by Max Brooks

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. This is exactly what we are going to 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 maybe even lasers. This program is made possible by the generous donation from PotashCorp.
Join us for an afternoon at the movies! Well be watching Divergent in the Activity Room in the Youth Services Department. Popcorn's on us! Heads up: This movie is rated PG-13
Teen Advisory Board Meeting #3
Finals may be months away, but its time to start some serious Finals Cafe planning. Lets start thinking about the cafe dates, snacks, drinks, activities and desired study aids. We will also be deciding on which goodwill service activity to do for our holiday meeting. If you sponsor a particular cause or know of any service projects, let us know! As always, there will be pizza and soda.
Tuesday, November 11, 5-6 p.m.
Mocha & More Book Discussion: The Selection by Kiera Cass
In a dystopian future, 35 young women are randomly selected to compete in the Selection, a reality TV competition to win the heart of Prince Maxon. In this caste-driven society, people are ranked from One (royalty) to Eight (untouchables), and poverty, famine, and ignorance are the fate of those ranked Six and below. America Singer, a Five, is one of the contestants but has no desire to become queen because shes in love with Aspen, the Six next door. Drinks are on us and the first 7 registered teens to check in at the Youth Services desk receive a free copy of the title.
Heads Up: This book has a suggested reading audience of 7-12 grade.
