Busy TLC meeting with many new faces!

Last Thursday's Teen Library Council meeting was well attended! An on-going Connect-Four challenge revealed several kings and queens of the game...the challenge to be continued!!

Movies, video games, computers, MANY new ideas for events, and Summer Reading Challenge plans/prizes were the hot topics of conversation. Thank you for all of your ideas and energy to help the Library best serve YOU!

Keep warm this week with a stack of all your favorites from the Library. Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of Sisterhood is excellent for those of you that have been following along with the girls since their first summer! This book picks up after the first year away at college.

Keep me posted of your picks for books and movies!! See you soon @ MGPL.

Teen Library Council Meeting - TLC!

Thursday, January 25, 2007 @ 7 pm
Come plan and brainstorm Library events for Spring and Summer! Bring a friend and/or come to meet some new ones. Tell us how the Library can best serve you. Refreshments provided...of course!

Last year, TLC planned bowling parties, monthly book club meetings, DDR competitions, game nights, holiday crafts, and more. A TV/DVD listening and viewing station and Video Game collection were added to the Teen Zone courtesy of great TLC ideas. Help us continue the success in 2007!

New Year's Costume Bowl Photos!!

We never knew if we would witness a gutter ball, spare, or strike with each bowl so it kept us watching, cheering, celebrating, and laughing. Especially after each strike or spare when the bowler would then chose an item from the costume pile to wear.

Most of the bowlers hung in for FOUR games! And then we decided that our magic number for prime performance was THREE games! The yummy pizza gave us a second wind...though we had to wait WAY TOO LONG for it to show up.

For some reason our capes, sequins, humorous ties, aprons, cat ears, funny hats, tiaras, and other apparel seemed to amuse some of the bowlers on other lanes. Maybe not as much as we amused ourselves!!

I look forward to brainstorming and planning many more Library events with everyone that can come to the Teen Library Council meeting on Thursday, January 25 @ 7 pm! All teens are welcome, so feel free to bring a friend. See you there! Happy 2007!
