Here’s what’s going on the week of April 15th. Drop by anytime between the hours of 4-5:30 Mon-Thurs!
Don’t forget we have a private study room (with cushy chairs!) available for teens during these hours on a first come, first serve basis. We’ll give you a snack and you can shut the door and get down to business.
MONDAY –LEGO CONTEST AND BUTTON MAKING - Listen up Lego lovers, we’re having a Lego contest. This isn’t the kind of Lego contest where you can bring in your crazy creations from home (though I’ve always wanted to see a Lego Deathstar). No, this is the kind of contest that stretches your creativity to the limit. You’ll each be giving a supply of regular old Lego, you know, the boring colored brinks that are ridiculously painful to step on. We’ll then introduce the “secret ingredient pieces” which will spice things up. You’ll have 45 minutes to create what you can. The coolest, most interesting, or just plain wackiest creation will win a prizes.
Also, back by popular demand is Button Making. Make a pin for your bag or a magnet for your locker. Feel free to bring pictures, magazines, or comics from home too.
***Today we’ll be in the upstairs program room***
TUESDAY – ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE GAMES – You know what there’s not enough of in video games, books, and TV? Zombies. Just kidding, those suckers are everywhere these days! Seriously, you can’t go a day without seeing them. Whether it’s Walking Dead or Call of Duty, they’ve taken over mainstream culture.
They’ve also taken over the library. Come by today to play some Zombie themed tabletop games. Zombie Dice, Bowling Zombies, Pandemic, and Last Night on Earth. It’s sure to be a brainless good time.
WEDNESDAY – BBQ AT BOB BAHAN POOL! – FREEEEE FOOOOOD! Burgers, hotdogs, all the good stuff. Enough said. Meet us at the library at 3:45 or head right over to the pool on your own. There’s sure to be plenty but it is first-come-first-serve so don’t be late!
THURSDAY –EARN A BIKE PROGRAM – This is the third week of the Two Wheel View bike program. The program is completely full so if you aren’t on the list, you’re unfortunately out of luck. You can still come up to the desk, sign out a board game, and grab a snack however. The giant chess set is also a great place to hang out and you can usually find someone up for a game.
Also, for your information, the East Calgary Health Centre now offers a Sexual and Reproductive Health Clinic for teens on Tuesdays and Thursdays between the hours of 12 and 4:30. This is a drop-in clinic and it is completely confidential. Parent permission is not required for you to visit the clinic. The East Calgary Health Centre is located at 4715 8th Avenue SE.
