Family Game Night, Movie Night, Frozen Slime!

FAMILY GAME NIGHT  We’ll be running a series of game nights through the winter.  The first one is tonight at 5:30 PM.  Bring your family and friends to play one or more of our selection of table-top games – try Yahtzee and Apples to Apples, or something less common like Tri-ominos or Tenzi.  Organize a tournament or just play for fun – it’s up to you.

 

FROZEN SLIME  Make icky, glittery snow slime from common household ingredients this Saturday, January 24, at 2 PM.  Take home a new toy and let us handle the mess.

 

MOVIE NIGHT  Come watch a movie about a group of misfits who guard the galaxy next Monday, January 26, at 5:30 PM.  There will be popcorn.  (This film is rated PG-13 for sci-fi action and some language.)

 

11 famous authors you'd recognize were born this month, can you name them all?

COMPUTER HELP  If you need help writing letters, searching the internet, or using your eReader, and want some individual help, make use of one of our new drop-in times this month.  You can make an appointment or stop in at your convenience – the help is first-come, first-served.  We will be holding hours this Saturday, January 17, from 11 AM – 12 PM.

AUTHOR BIRTHDAYS  Celebrate this month with the creators of many of your favorite classics.  Zane Grey, Edgar Allan Poe, Edith Wharton, A. A. Milne, Isaac Asimov, Jack London, and Lewis Carroll were all born in January.  So were Lord of the Rings author J. R. R. Tolkien, physicist Stephen Hawking, Trappist monk and spiritual writer Thomas Merton, and American Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, to name just a few.  Check out the display of just some of their works next to the new fiction books, or ask staff for more titles.

SENIOR SOCIAL  We invite all retired folk to an afternoon coffee hour for conversation and treats tomorrow, Wednesday January 14, from 1-3 PM.
