APRIL 2017 PROGRAMS

Teen Advisory Group (TAG)
Tuesdays, April 4th and 11th, 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
in the Upper Level Conference Room

Abbot Public Library’s Teen Advisory Group needs you! We’re looking for teens to help us make the Teen Room YOUR space. We’ll plan events, pick books for the collection, and maybe even complete some library-related service projects. If you love the library and want to do some community service hours that make a real difference, consider joining! The Teen Advisory Group meets every Tuesday from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm in the Conference Room at Abbot Public Library. Signup forms are available in the Teen Room and at TAG meetings. This is a volunteer opportunity for grades 7-12.

 

Teen Treasure Hunt
Monday, April 10th – Thursday, April 13th
in the Abbot Public Library Teen Room

From Easter Eggs to Passover Matzah to the first flowers of spring, April is all about hunting for stuff! Drop by the Teen Room anytime April 10-13 to participate in a Treasure Hunt. Your first clue will be posted near the Teen Librarian’s desk, and from there… who knows?!?! (Well, I know, but I’m not telling!) There will be a prize at the end for those who can solve the clues.

 

Recycled Crafternoon for Teens
Tuesdays, April 18th and 25th, 3:00 pm

in the Abbot Public Library Teen Room

To celebrate Earth Day we’ll be using recycled items in two Crafternoon (Craft Afternoon) sessions. Projects will include Glitter Jar Galaxies, Takeout Shrinky Dinks, Book Page Origami, and maybe more. You can come to just one session or come to both!

(If you want to make a Glitter Jar Galaxy, please bring a clear plastic or glass container with a watertight lid. We’ll also have a limited selection available.)

Fresh vs. Frozen Cookoff!
Wednesday, March 22nd, 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

March is National Frozen Food Month, and we’re going to put frozen snacks to the test! We’ll prepare the same snack twice: once from fresh ingredients and once from frozen. Then we’ll decide which was better. For dessert we’ll make our own ice cream, the best frozen food of all!

Registration is requested for this event.
