All you teens and gamers and others gather up, cause it’s big time game night.  We’ll open up all the PCs in the building, get them networked together, and may the fastest fingers win.  We’ll also set up all our game stations and borrow a bunch more so there will always be guitar hero and DDR and other fun games going on too.  Popcorn and drinks will be available, but everyone is encouraged to bring some fun potlucks, like cookies or bars or other deserts to share.

The library will even stay open until 10pm, extra late, for everyone to have maximum fun.  Use the comments to tell us what else we should include for the best game night ever.

Summer Story Hours

At the start of the “eating season” we’ll story hour food books, including classic Dr. Suess titles such as Green Eggs and Ham.  This timeless Dr. Seuss classic was first published in 1960, and has been delighting readers ever since. Sam-I-am is as persistent as a telemarketer, changing as many variables as possible in the hopes of convincing the nameless skeptic that green eggs and ham are a delicacy to be savored. He tries every manner of presentation with this “nouveau cuisine”–in a house, with a mouse, in a box, with a fox, with a goat, on a boat–to no avail. Then finally, finally the doubter caves under the tremendous pressure exerted by the tireless Sam-I-am. And guess what? Well, you probably know what happens, but even after reading Green Eggs and Ham the thousandth time, the climactic realization that green eggs and ham are “so good, so good, you see” is still a rush. As usual, kids will love Dr. Seuss’s wacky rhymes and whimsical illustrations–and this time, they might even be so moved as to finally take a taste of their broccoli. (Ages 4 to 8)
