December

Saturday, Dec 3rd @ 2pm: Dinner and a Movie – The battle rages on in  Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.  Join us for pizza, popcorn and drinks while enjoying Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire with your friends. Harry, Hermione and Ron don their “dress up” clothes for the big ball, all the while Harry tries to stay alive in the, sometimes deadly, tri-wizard tournament.  As always, we’ll have lots of snacks and an optional hands on project – HP house book marks or Christmas door hangings.  So, come relax with your BFF’s at a free moving screening picked for you by our Teen Advisory Board.

Monday, Dec 5th @ 5:30pm: Our teen advisory board (TAB) meets monthly to discuss things “teen” in the library.  Members are asked to commit to a full school year, but occasional absences are understandable. Board time qualifies for as community service time for many organizations. Snacks are always provided.
December attendees get to decorate the YA department for the holidays!

Thursday, Dec 8th from 4-6pm: BYOS – Bring Your Own Sweater and use our vinyl cutter to “uglify” it for the holidays.  (It doesn’t really have to be ugly 🙂  We’ll supply the technology and the vinyl, you bring your sweater.  Fabrics must be dryer/iron safe as we’ll have to “iron-on” your designs with our heat press. So come get a little crazy and create own seasonal adornment!
