    Ninety five percent of the world’s population has been wiped out in the 4 previous alien attacks. With the 5th wave, the aliens are roaming the countryside killing anyone they see. To stay alive means to stay alone or so Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. He may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother and staying alive, but can she trust him?

    Monday, February 16, 2015 - 2:00pm
    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. In this program, we will be using MaKey MaKeys to turn everyday conductive items into touchpads recognizable by our computers. All Northbrook Public Library cardholders who participate in the Computer Hackers class will be eligible to check out MaKey MaKey Kits from the library.
    This program is made possible by the generous donation from PotashCorp.
