We had a terrific time at our Foam Party last week! If you missed it, you missed a really foamy good time. There are plenty of pictures on our Flickr page here. (A brief video to follow soon.) It was such a great time we hope to have it again next year! Thanks to everyone who came and tried it out!

YOU decide how the story goes!


Cammy Hall is what anyone would describe as a loser. At school, Cammy is used to being an outsider. But when she suddenly starts receiving text messages revealing all the embarrassing secrets about the most popular kids in school, can she actually become the Queen? You can help decide Cammy's fate! Author Jodi Lynn Anderson presents Loser/Queen, an online serialized novel that invites you, the reader, to vote on where you think the storyline should go. Starting on Monday, July 26, a new chapter will be posted each week at www.loserqueen.com.


Ready to play some LEGO Star Wars or LEGO Harry Potter? Or how about playing as Gru, the world's worst supervillain, from the movie Despicable Me? Come in and see our new selection of videogames--we've added many more titles, especially for the Wii. You can read descriptions here and stop by to see which games are available. More rotating games are coming soon, too!

Ready for a Foam Party?


It's almost here! The Foam Party! next Thursday July 29, at 7pm, come to the Foam Party! Have a soak-tacular time playing in 20 square feet of FOAM! Think of an outdoor bubble bath, but without the water--just lots and lots of bubbles! You have to see it to believe it. No signup required, but wear a bathing suit and/or old clothes. The foam is hypo-allergenic and nontoxic, but you WILL get WET!

Come hear some Tales From Beyond!

This Wed July 7 at 4pm, for grades 6 to 12. Experience tales of mayhem, mental powers and the macabre. See strange artifacts from the 1935 closing of Colney Hatch Mental Asylum.
