Congratulations to our winning players in the Super Smash Bros Brawl tournament, Ben (1st place) and James (2nd place)! They received a $50 and a $25 giftcard, respectively, from GameStop, courtesy of the Friends of the Library. Thanks to all our players who came out to have a fun time on the Wii.
Hey guys! My name’s Gina and I’m Christina’s practicum student this summer at SMFPL. I’m going to school at Kent State to be a Teen Librarian and a practicum is kinda like student teaching (except we’re librarians, not teachers). Occasionally I’ll be posting stuff here related to Summer Reading. Today I have something new that I’m creating and I want to share it with you. When I read a book and especially if I really like it I always get a song stuck in my head.
Because of a wonderful overwhelming response--in other words, LOTS of people signing up!--we have added 6 more sessions of Minecraft Mondays! We now have sessions that start at noon, on the same 6 Mondays, because most of the 2pm sessions are full. So if you were hoping to get in and called yesterday, but the sessions you wanted were full, try calling back and we should be able to fit you in. This is for any teens who have completed 6th grade, through 12th grade. Details here. Thanks!
