The school year is coming to a close, so a lot of our regular weekly programs are winding up here at PPL. But that’s only so we can get ready for summer! Summer Discovery!
The YA Summer Discovery program is changing it up this year! No more auction – and new ways to earn prizes! Check out this post for the full story!
But, in addition to the new Summer Discovery format, we’re also offering summer activities for Tweens and Teens this year!
Try out a new gadget, build a video game controller, or test yourself with an engineering challenge! Every Tuesday (5:00-7:00 pm) and Thursday(10:00 am-12:00 pm) from June 1-July 18, Miss Kirsten will be on hand to showcase some of the fun tech toys at the library and facilitate some zany engineering challenges with common household items. Whatever you choose to do, it’ll definitely be fun!
Every week on Wednesday (1:00-3:00 pm) from June 1-July 18, we’ll be hosting a more formal class where participants can learn to do tons of different crafts from glass etching to duct tape wallets! Each week is a new project! Everything you need to complete the project is included in the class – for free! Here’s the list:
