We are getting excited about our programming for kids and teens during February break, and I wanted to use my letter this week to tell you about all of the wonderful things we have planned. We hope there will still be snow on the ground and that in between playing, you will find some time to visit us at Skidompha!
A Youth Chess Tournament will run throughout the week, from Tuesday, 2/21 – Friday, 2/24. This tournament is open to players ages 5-18 and does require registration, so stop by the kids’ room ahead of time to sign up!
Our new artist-in-residence Will, has some really cool events planned for teens this week. Be on the lookout for details in upcoming newsletters.
We’ve created a Teen Scavenger Hunt for February break. Teens can stop by and test their mettle any time during the week! The hunt will be more interactive than others we’ve done in the past. Teens who complete the challenge will be entered into a raffle to win something cozy.
On Thursday from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m., we will kick off our new Youth LEGO Club. We’ll have bricks for building and kits for in-library use. The club will be held in the kids’ room and does not require registration. After the February break, this group will meet weekly after school on Thursdays.
On Friday afternoon, we will end the week with an all-ages Crafternoon! This will run from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m., and we will have all the craft supplies we can find waiting for your creativity! This will be held in the kids’ room and is open to teens and adults, too! Creations that aren’t taken home will be displayed for a while after in the kids’ room for us all to enjoy.
We’ll also have displays and crafts ready for kids and teens to enjoy at the library or from home, along with our cozy red chairs, nooks, and crannies set up for snuggling in with a good story.
