No Tween Time today ;(

I'm sorry everyone!  Due to illness, we won't be having Tween Time today.  Next Tuesday, we'll meet at our regular time and place to make our Sock Dragons.  Sorry for the short notice!

Thanks all,

Hey Tweens :)

Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul, and Mary (ask your parents, they'll know who that is...) is releasing his new book Puff the Magic Dragon and will be at our library later this month to sign books, play guitar and sing songs with us!

So, next Tuesday we're going to start making some SOCK DRAGONS!  The first ten kids to arrive at the book event will each win one of the sock dragons we're making.  So let's get creative!  I'm bringing socks, some googly eyes, and some colorful fabric.  If you have other embellishments -- rhinestones, fabric, brightly-colored yarn, or just about anything else we can play around with -- please bring them.  This is your chance to shine and show off all that artistic talent I've seen in you, as well as play around with a whole new set of materials.  Get funky and let's have some dragon FUN! 

See you Tuesday!

Next tuesday (October 18th) will be Tween Cinema Tuesday!  So, parents and kids -- comment here if you'd like to suggest a movie!  The only requirements are that it's rated 'G' and that it's fun :)  See you then!

Tie-Dye Party!

Today at TweenReads we're going to get outside and try out tie-dyeing!  Come by, bring your own shirt, pants, apron... anything you'd like to spruce up with a little color.  And don't worry -- if you forget your shirt, we've got extras :)

1st Post!

Hey Readers :)

September is an exciting month at FHPL.  We're starting a new program just for Tweens, with games, book-talks, and lots of fun activities.  Get involved!  Join us for TweenTime every Tuesday at 4pm in the Activity Center at FHPL, beginning in September.  Since this is a brand new group, you'll get to help shape the future of the group -- tell us what you're into, what projects you'd like to participate in, what you'd like to see happening at your Library! 

See you there!
