Morning, all. I'm just back from a much-needed vacation in Ireland. It was lovely, and we had a great time. But now I'm back at work and gearing up for what promises to be a spectacular summer at the Winter Park Public Library.
We've organized our schedule for teen programs, and I wanted to give you a sneak preview of what's in store...
At the kick-off party on Saturday, June 2 (10-12), we'll have a Free Throw Shoot-Out competition, a rock wall and free goodies to all who register for the Summer Reading Program.
Other summer programs include
A Harry Potter party to celebrate the last book and the 5th movie. You could win a free copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!
Thursday nights are movie nights. Those who attend will vote on the movie they see. And yes, we’ll have nosh on hand.
Monday nights are “Bored Game” nights. We’ll have special tournaments to find out who reigns supreme in Monopoly, checkers and other games we all know and love.
Back by popular demand, Marble Magnets and make your own Soaps/Lotions/Bath Salts. We had so much fun making these during Teen Read Week that we are going to do it again this summer.
Henna Tattoos and a Taste of India. Mychele is back with some cool tattoo designs and you’ll get to munch on yum Indian food.
You decide on the best pizza in Winter Park at the Pizza Taste-Off.
Nancy is back to teach us more relaxing Yoga Basics as well as some nifty Tae Kwon Do moves.
And, get this, the grand prizes for the summer are a Wii Game Console and an iPod Video! You can register to win these prizes by turning in your reading log at the end of the summer. Also, for each program you attend, you get another entry into the drawing. That's up to 23 chances to win.
Keep watching the WPPL Teen's Page for more information on the Summer Reading Program, or drop by and visit me and I'll give you the lowdown. Also, don't forget, the deadline for the Poetry Contest is April 17. Good luck, and I'll see you at the Library.
