So I have this project...

"Oh, by the way... "

Those were always the words my parents dreaded hearing when my brother and I were growing up. Usually, because it meant that one, or both of us, forgot about an upcoming project. Luckily, for us and my parents, we usually remembered sooner rather than later—but sometimes we did push it kind of close.

It’s not uncommon for parents and kids to come rushing into the library the night before a project is due looking for information and inspiration—but have no fear! We have some amazing project books here at the library that can help out students in just this situation. My booklist by no means has every book that would help, but it features some of the lesser known ones. Now, without any further procrastination, check out my "So, I have this project..." booklist.

Teen Tech Week: Be the Source of Change

How will you change the world? Join the library from March 5-11 for Teen Tech Week 2017, and show how you see 2017's theme: "Be the Source of Change." This year, we're changing things up, too, and giving teens two ways to get involved.

First, come by the teen sections in our branches throughout the week to get creative and try out some tech.

Euro Board Games

Euro board games, also called Eurogames and German-style board games, have become increasingly popular over the past 20 years with the introduction of Settlers of Catan in the 1990s. They are tabletop games that involve simple rules, indirect player competition (or cooperation between all players), are strategy-based, and involve minimal to no random luck. Euro board games are referred to as such due to the design and development of the games being centered in Europe, particularly Germany.

The Headquarters, England Run, Porter, and the Salem Church branches will each host a Euro Board Game Night one evening a month on the following rotation(Grades 10 through adult):

1st Mondays at 7:00: Headquarters
2nd Mondays at 7:00: England Run
3rd Mondays at 7:00: Porter
4th Mondays at 7:00: Salem Church

Join our meetup group for Euro Game Night!
