We were going to try and save this video for one of our “Happy Friday” posts but we just can’t wait ’til then and we just can’t help ourselves, sooo…HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!

Want to have even more Wednesday fun?  Show up to our regular Wednesday teen program at the Fairmount St. library.  Get Your Game On is a super fun time full of video games, online games, and even board games with teens of all ages from several area schools.  It meets every Wednesday from 3-5.  Please feel free to join us.  Plus also, there’s a really wild rumor going around about pizza and skittles at gaming.  Could it be true?!

Summer programs for teens!

May 21, 2011

Are you making your summer plans already?  Be sure to sign up for the Teen Summer Reading Program (which runs June 4th – August 4th) and check out some of the great teen programs we have lined up this season. 

We figure the best way to beat boredom this summer and exercise your creative muscles is to attend our awesome Teen Craft Tuesdays.

In keeping with the Summer Reading Program theme of ‘You Are Here’ each week will highlight a different craft inspired by various countries around the world.  The finale of the summer will be a good old fashioned American tie dye party!   All of the teen craft programs will be on Tuesdays from 3-4 at the Fairmount St.  Library.  Check out the entire line up:

6/7 – DIY Travel Journals
6/14 – X-treme Mask Making
6/21 – Bangles & Jangles Pop Tab Jewelry
6/28 – Thai String Creature Key Chains
7/5 – Build Your Own Boomerang
7/12 – Ice Marble Magnets
7/19 – Guatemalan Worry Dolls
7/26 – Tie Dye Party


Also, continuing all summer long is our ever popular Get Your Game On program.  This free play gaming program gives teens a chance to hang with their friends, play their favorite board games, and test their video gaming skills on one of 6 screens.  It meets every Wednesday from 3-5 at the Fairmount St. location.  We can’t think of a cooler way to stay cool this summer…join us!


Lastly, our special event of the summer is the 6th Annual Teen Battle of the Bands.  This year’s Battle will take place during the afternoon on Saturday, July 9th, at the Eastern Ave. Library.  Do you have what it takes to be the winning teen band for the Quad Cities this year? Our very own Library Idol?  Pick up your registration at any Davenport Library location starting June 1 and turn in before June 30.  Registration fee is $25.  All area teens welcome – groups or soloists; rock, blues, jazz, classical or country! 

Stay tuned to the blog for all the latest teen program details.  Have a great summer and keep reading!
