Teen "Dr. Who" Event Rescheduled!

We won't be stopped by power outages! The Teen "Dr. Who" Event has been rescheduled for Thursday, August 7th from 5:00-7:00pm.

Come enjoy some timey-wimey science fiction with Dr. Who snacks, trivia and a movie special. If you haven't signed up, there is still time!

Website Showcase:

Kids and tech seem inseparable, and it can be a real challenge for parents to keep up with what is fun and what is folly. The site can help teach your kids to make smart decisions about their electronic activities.

According to the site authors: " was created through a partnership between Sprint® and the Internet safety experts at NetSmartz® Workshop, a program of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children®. Through animated videos, short films, games, and interactive comics, NSTeens teaches tweens and teens about making safer choices online. Teaching materials are available for intermediate, middle school, and high school educators so they can bring these engaging lessons right into the classroom. All resources on are available free of charge."


Thank You for the Water Bottles!

Ms. Kristy has all the water bottles she needs for the final party -- thank you!


And if You Want to Make Your Own Slime...

Here is the recipe:

Fill a plastic cup (or some other disposable container) 1/3 full with school glue (roughly 1/4 to 1/2 cup). Add tempra paint or food coloring and mix thoroughly. Then add roughly the same amount of liquid starch and stir. Results vary quite a bit! Store the slime in an airtight container and watch it evolve over time.


What's Happening at the Library?

We've weathered the power outages, and are still going full speed ahead with our summer reading. After the visit from Binder Park Zoo, we had a science fair, made marble runs, invented inventions and played with rainbows. Tons of fun at the Vicksburg District Library!




This month's Book Club Pick:

Prepare for August by reading any book by Joshilyn Jackson.

Our next book discussion group will meet Thursday, August 7th at 9 a.m.
