Want to spruce up your old white tshirts? tie-dye them! These teens came to our tie-dye program and squirted their way to cooler-looking clothes. Check out the "before" photos in the Teen Photos page. We'll post photos of their finished shirts later.
Our recent Recycled Crafts program showed teens how to make a wallet out of an old audiocassette tape. With some felt, a zipper, and hot glue, we gave life to an old medium. Here are directions to do it yourself.Decorate them with stickers and markers.
Check out our Facebook page to see some great photos from this summer's reading program - Reading and All That Jazz.

Everyone has been busy reading and winning prizes! We have one month to go before Summer Reading is over, so you still have lots of time to join in.
Check out our Teen Flickr photosets for some artsy shots of Dance Dance Revolution players! Next week's program is Recycled Crafts; come make a wallet from an audiocassette or a Hawaiian lei out of grocery bags. (Really!)
Kids, please tell all your parents! Ohio Libraries are in big trouble - Governor Strickland is planning to reduce funding to our libraries - which may mean that our library won't be able to have all of the fun programs, great books and movies and more that we want to be able to lend to you this year. We only have until Thursday, June 25, so hurry and tell them to call or email their congressmen and representatives. The address to email them is on the front of the website. Thanks kids!
