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:
Got plans for Fall Break? The Goshen Public Library does! If you’re in 6th through 12th grades, we’re having programs Monday through Thursday for you from 2-5 pm during Teen Read Week, based on a travel theme.
Monday we’ll have an International Iron Chef cooking & menu design competition; Tuesday is Ticket to Read with a travel-themed board game, scavenger hunt, and art activity; Wednesday is all about time travel with a Back to the Future Day and an interactive viewing of the classic movie; and Thursday we’ll learn about biomes around the world with a nature walk, terrarium building, and an art project.
Sign up yourself and a friend today for fun and snacks at the library over fall break!
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.
Sign up now for fall programs!
