Believe it or not, there was a time when television only had three channels, phones had cords, and there was no DVRing our favorite American Idol episodes, but people still got together to socialize (even without Facebook). To entertain themselves, friends and families turned to card games, and one of those games was Bridge. From royal palaces to rustic pubs, Bridge has been played since the 16th century. Now, you can learn how to play too!
It is that time of year again. School’s just getting into the swing of things, and if you are in high school, it’s time to start thinking about the college entrance exams. When I applied for college, you had to apply almost a year in advance to get the good dorms. That means the ACT had to be taken even earlier. I also took it three times, so I had to start super early.
Are you ready for Halloween? We can’t help you make a costume, but we can help you out with an awesome design for your Jack O’Lantern!! Bring a cleaned out pumpkin to carve into something funny, scary, or glamorous. We've got some great designs to use, and we'll provide carving tools. Join in the fun on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. for Pumpkin Carving for Teens.
Fall is a season for fun with the cooler weather, colorful changing of the leaves, and amusing crafts, like carving pumpkins! Local teens from Oak Grove recently showed their pumpkin carving skills at the Extreme Pumpkins carving program. Pictured from left to right: The Headless Horseman, a fire-breathing dragon, a sharp-toothed jack-o-lantern, and a bat flying over a cemetery. What skilled pumpkin artists!
This month’s anime club did not go as planned; technology issues prevented us from watching our movie! But our intrepid kids did not let such a hiccup daunt them! We pulled out the handy dandy box o’Legos and had a great time building castles, spaceships, and alien life forms (and talking about anime, Yu-Gi-Oh, Magic: The Gathering, and telling jokes). So even when things don’t go as planned, we always have a great time at the library.
