Summer Reading at WCPLtn

TEENSRP2014By Erin Holt, Teen Librarian

What a great summer we’ve had at the Library! Our Teen Department had over 450 book reviews submitted and 13 awesome teens won various prizes, including an iPad Mini, Kindle Fire tablets, and Barnes & Noble gift cards! Everyone beat the heat at the library, stopping by our 2nd floor Teen Fiction room to cool off with a good book, play on the computers, and meet up with friends. We’re looking forward to fall and have some exciting new programs including Lego Mindstorm, Minecraft, and Wii gaming! Keep reading and we’ll see you at the Library!

Terry Hedges, Master Magician comes to WCPLtn!!!

MakeAThon : A Festival of Creativity — The RECAP

By Erin Holt, Reference Librarian

Shew, what a flurry of activity we had going on at the library on May 3!! We’re still whirling from it all!

Between the stormtroopers, the drone, Bruce the WCPLtn remote controlled shark, the Irish Step Dancers, Minecraft, and the mad scientists, we can’t pick a favorite!
