It’s Spring Break and we’ve got some fun projects this week for our teens! Checking out any item and participating in programs ALL WEEK LONG will enter teens into our drawing for Las Olas Taqueria gift cards.
Make a carnivorous garden or faerie grove all your own. The tiny Terrariums that we’ll be making are a great way for teens to learn about container gardens. Sign-ups are welcomed but not required for this project. We’ll have snacks and drinks and Xbox gaming.
Come in for Chasing Mavericks starring Gerard Butler. “When young Jay Moriarity discovers that the mythic Mavericks surf break, one of the biggest waves on Earth, exists just miles from his Santa Cruz home, he enlists the help of local legend Frosty Hesson to train him to survive it.” Free snacks and drinks.
Found Object Art Project. Use seaglass, driftwood, and shells to create bookmarks, critters, or your own unique piece. Materials provided. Free pizza, snacks, drinks, and Xbox gaming.
We’ll end the week with Teen Gaming. Free snacks and drinks as always!
I’ve seen a lot of almanacs floating around both in our department and on the web, so I just wanted to share one more. This bright green and gilded little almanac is for the year 1836, and contains everything from holidays to portraits. What’s most impressive: you can hold it on the tip of your finger!

It’s still National Library Week. You should be especially nice to a librarian today, or tomorrow. Sometime this week, anyway. Probably the librarians would like tea. Or chocolates. Or a reliable source of funding.
