Recently, GPL Teens paired up with Goshen High School to provide makerspace experiences with students at the new “RedHawk Hacker Lab.” We had a lot of fun playing with our food in the marshmallow challenges!

Three teams rocked mad marshmallow bridge skills and tied to win the bridge challenge!

Piet Mondrian Coasters

At our last Crafty Bandits club  meeting, we learned about modern art, artist Piet Mondrian, and listened to some cool jazz. We also made some of our own modern art coasters!

Here are some of the super cool results:

New Fiction Review: Hold Me Closer

Hold Me Closer cover artNew fiction review by Teen Services Librarian:

If you liked Will Grayson, Will Grayson by David Levithan and John Green, you will LOVE Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story. From the author of Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, comes the complete musical outlined in Will Grayson, Will Grayson.

I actually read Hold Me Closer first, but didn’t feel like I was losing out on the story at all, so they can be read in either order. It’s a quick read, since it’s a play. It’s also as heart-warming as it is hilarious. The incomparable Tiny Cooper, who is very big, and very gay, will be a character to remember. I can’t wait for the audio version—or dare we hope?—the actual musical production. Two enthusiastic jazz hands!

Grade Recommendation: 9+

The Leaky Cauldron

The Leaky Cauldron is coming to GPL!

It’s good news/bad news time here at the library… the bad news is that we’re cancelling our planned trip to the Hall of Heroes Villains night for our next Nerd’s Night Out. While that visit would’ve been very cool (and we enjoyed our last visit a lot!), it’s over in Elkhart, and so we would have to limit the number of people who can participate in order to provide transportation over there. And we don’t like to limit participation! We want everyone who can come to come to our programs!

So, change of plans: we’re going to throw a Harry Potter party instead! And we’re so excited! Come dressed as your favorite character– the sorting hat will place you in your house where you will compete against the other houses for the Tri-Wizard cup. Create your own custom wand, duel against other wizards, go on the ultimate horcrux hunt, and test your HP knowledge in the pensieve trivia game. Plus, polyjuice potion and pizza!

Sign up today at the circulation desk or with Melissa at Teen Services. Nerd’s Night Out: The Leaky Cauldron will be Friday, October 16, 2015 from 5-8 pm in the auditorium.
