  • Computer Hackers: MaKey MaKey (grades 4-8)
    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.

    Mocha and More: Every Day by David Levithan
    Every day, A wakes in a different body. Every day, A has a different person's life. There are rules: don’t get too attached, avoid being noticed, and never interfere with their lives. Every day it’s the same, that is until A wakes up in the body of Justin and falls in love with Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon.
