Teen Programs

  • Computer Hacking (Grades 6-12)
    Tuesday, April 22, 2014 - 4:30pm
    Youth Services Activity Room

    Computer Hackers
    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.
    Tuesday, March 25, 3-4:30 p.m.
    Wednesday, April 22, 4:30-6 p.m.

  • Mocha & More: Eleanor and Park (Grades 6-12)
    Friday, April 25, 2014 - 7:00pm

    Mocha and More: Eleanor and Park
    It’s time to read one of the most celebrated YA books of 2013 - Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.

    It’s 1986. Eleanor is an outcast with an abusive family and Park is a half Korean misfit in Omaha. Every day on the bus to and from school, they listen to alternative music and read comics. It’s love, but can high school love last? We meet at the Starbucks on Cherry, your first drink is on us and the first FIVE registered teens to check-in at the Youth Services desk will receive a free copy of the book. Heads Up: This book has a suggested reading audience of grades 7-12th.
    Friday, April 25, 7-8:00 p.m., Starbucks on Cherry
