Fall is just around the corner, and with its arrival, the Blue Springs North Branch will be offering some fun and unique programs. The following are just a few of those programs. Check out our Events page for a full listing for our branch (or any others).
I know midterms are right around the corner. You’re probably stressed out enough without thinking about the future, especially another important exam, but here I am, putting a bug in your ear. Do you know which test you need to take to get into the college of your choice, ACT or SAT?
Are you getting ready for Halloween? We here at the Platte City Branch sure are! Next week, we will be having our first ever teen program to celebrate the upcoming holiday. Be Afraid, Very Afraid is a collection of spooky tales told by Milton Gray. This event is just for teens, so bring all your friends for a fun and scary night out!
Teens at the Antioch Branch had the opportunity to try some French cooking this week. Usually, when one imagines French foods, you think of heavy sauces and beautiful presentations. We did not worry about either for this program. Our chef, Ms. LaGrece, prepared couscous pilaf with cranberries and pecans. For the sauce, we tasted Rosemary's Peppercorn. Can you say delicious? While she prepared the dish, Ms. LaGrece talked about healthy eating. We all came away smarter about food selection and preparation, and full from eating the results.
I've written before about how much I love this time of year. I literally spend hours decorating my tree at home to ensure that all of the ornaments are spaced totally evenly, and not a single branch is left without decoration. I've also enjoyed being the resident decorator of our branch Christmas tree for the past few years.
I always thought that a "classic" was just required reading for English Lit Class, but actually there are some really great books for teens that are considered classics… Some of the books have turned into school book lists, while others can still be enjoyed without it being required reading. I enjoyed many different types of books, even if they were required reading.
