Laser Tag on June 15th, 2018

In two weeks from this posting, we’ll be having laser tag in the library!

To kick off summer reading, we have an evening of fun planned on June 15th. First, we’ll have a Beatles tribute concert featuring New England’s best Beatles tribute band, 4EverFab, on the library lawn starting at 6:30 PM.

Then, at 9 PM, forty teens—that’s anyone going into 6th grade and up in the fall—will be invited to play laser tag in the library. Two teams at a time will compete for glory among the stacks, and there will be snacks, pizza, and soda. All participants will win a door prize! The fun will go until midnight.

But if you want to be one of the laser warriors, you’ll need to do a couple of things. First, you need to sign up on the library website. Then, you’ll need to returned a completed Laser Tag Liability Release to the reference desk.

Register online, turn in those forms, and we’ll see you on the battlefield!

Girls Who Code – Week 5

Hi everyone – due to an email crash I was not able to access my mail, which had Lianne’s link to the slide she featured on July 25. But my email is back, yay! and I’m able to share Lianne’s slide, see below.

Keep working on your projects! If you’ve finished your project, then feel free to continue with the Codesters more advanced lessons to learn more about Python.

A reminder: Our Parent/Friends night is scheduled for Wednesday, August 9, at 6:30pm. The girls will show off their projects, and we’ll all belly up to the (sundae!) bar and celebrate the girls’ hard work with ice cream and all the toppings!

Falcons, Hawks and Owls – Oh My!!

Many thanks to Jim Parks and “Wingmasters” for bringing their “Birds of Prey” program to the library! Adults and school-age kids were treated to an educational program on the feeding habits and flight ergonomics of red-tail hawks, falcons and owls, and got to meet these flying beauties up close and personal. Enjoy!
