Fifteen teens signed up on Saturday the 22nd to the Beneath the Surface online Teen Reads.  Thanks!  But, wait, there’s more!  I still have some booklights left for Teen Readers who sign on.  The first random drawing  will take place on Friday.  This week is a copy of ‘Wreck This Journal’ – a great way to mess with a book and feel good about it.  The last day of school is Sandwich today.  Too long, I say, too long for a school year.  Have a great summer, you readers.  And, MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU….(hint:  Star Wars Symposium at SPL Saturday, July 13th, 2 pm.)mehndi  FIRST TEEN PROGRAM:

beneath2SUMMER, SUMMER, SUMMER, SUMMER, SUMMER…..ah, the joy.  Here is an invitation to participate in the 2013 Summer Reading for Teens, aka theme, Beneath the Surface registration/signup beginning Saturday, June 22nd HERE at the Library (or at home, it’s online.).  Drop by to register any time from 9:30 am to 2 pm in the Conference Room, grab a doughnut, register at the computer, grab an ice cream sandwich, program calendar, and free book light if you are one of the first 30 to sign up that day.  Never fear, it is painless and I am so excited about our teen programs, opportunities like volunteering, and superior summer reading materials at your library.  And, hey, you SHS folks, your reading list books are in the Teen Reads area.  A number are available as e-books as well.  What lies beneath the surface?  Hard to say but I hope the library can be of service to you this summer with its events and collection of great reading materials.  Teen Vols!!!

Join us for a henna workshop where participants will be beautifully adorned with a henna tattoo, an art form also known as Mehndi. This all natural type of temporary tattoo, in addition to being historically and culturally significant, is extremely safe for all skin types. Henna artist Mandy Roberge has been traveling to libraries across Massachusetts bringing henna to teens and adults since 2007.  Courtesy Registration on the library website, Events Calendar.
