Scrapbooking! You asked for it we did it! Scrapbooking a.k.a. throwback Thursday (or in this case Tuesday) style preservation of your favorite pics and experiences. Join Ms. Becky in the Stride Room for friends, snacks, supplies and a little bit of instruction. Bring your pictures and scrapbooks; use our supplies and bounce ideas of other scrappers.
We’re a little early for National Poetry Month (that’s April), but YA has just updated the Pure Poetry reading list. It contains collections of poems and novels in verse; all published in the last two years and all found in YA collections across the state. Enjoy!
ARC Book club, what’s that? Get the best books before they are even published! The current collection is up through March!
If you are a literary lover, this is the book club for you. We get Advance Reader Copies of books direct from the publisher. Advanced as in before anyone else! …in advance of the the official release date! You read them and tell us what you think. Did you like it? Was it an all-nighter? A snoozer? Your friends can’t wait to read it; you already have! Ms. Becky has a collection of books with release dates through September already. Come on in and grab one before the meeting! Then come to our meeting, eat sweet treats and give us a short summary and your opinion on the book. It’s simple and fun (and you aren’t graded!)
Here’s what we received new this month. First come first served so come on in and get your favorite before someone else does!
Four done, sorry you missed them, and these fabulous 3 to go!
Thursday, November 15th at 4:00p, YA Area – ARC Book Club
Advanced Readers Copies Book Club (or ARC for short) is not like any book club you’ve been to before. ARC gives teens access to the hottest young adult titles before they’re published! Members munch on delicious snacks while choosing from a variety of pre-published novels that they take home, read and review! Next month we’ll come together again to talk about what you read, eat MORE delicious snacks and, of course, grab another pre-published title so we can take another ride on this rollercoaster of eating, reading and reviewing! No registration required.
Tuesday, November 20th at 4:30p, Stride Room – Scrapbooking with Miss Becky
Uploading cherished pics to Instagram or Snapchat can feel somewhat impersonal, no matter how many filters or hashtags you use. Why not bring your photos, memorabilia and artistic flare to NPL and let Miss Becky show you how to create something no social media widget can imitate? No registration required.
Tuesday, November 27th at 4p, Maker Lab – 3D Christmas Decorations
Ms. Becky will be in the Maker Lab teaching 3D printing. If you already know how, come be a mentor or just do your own thing. New to the technology? Come learn some simple CAD (computer aided design) and create your very own 3D project – affectionately known as a thing (stop me if I’m going too fast). Depending on audience size, we may even pull out the scanner and you can give mom a 3D print of your head to hang on the Christmas tree! Registration requested.
