Teen Board Game Night!

 

Do you love board games? Looking to meet some new friends? Or maybe just looking for a place to hang out and stay out of the winter weather this January? Come to the Aurora Public Library and play some fun board games with others on January 25th at 6 pm! This month’s board game is Muffin Time, an energetic, quirky card game where the goal is to be the first player with 10 cards. But be warned, the other players are out to get you with the help of their own cards of sabotage and mass destruction!

Snacks and drinks will be provided (featuring muffins of all varieties, of course), as well as other popular board games to choose from. This program is open to anyone 13-18 years of age. No registration is required. Bring all your friends and get ready for Muffin Time!

A Not-So-Merry GRINCHmas!!

There’s a new movie release of The Grinch this month, but I can’t help it if I still love the original version, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. This 1966 animated TV film was the first adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ book of the same name, and starred Boris Karloff as both the narrator and the wonderfully wicked voice of the Grinch.

The Grinch has certainly become an icon of Christmas since the book was released in 1957, despite the character’s hatred of the season. We know that the Grinch, annoyed by the noisy Christmas festivities that take place in Whoville, decides to devise a wicked scheme to steal the Who’s presents, trees, and food for their Christmas feast. When the Grinch hears the residents of Whoville singing a joyous song, rather than lamenting over the loss of their Christmas goodies, he realizes that “maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”

Who can resist watching the original version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas just one more time, enjoying Grinch treats, playing games and making a Grinch ornament to take home? Tweens and Teens (ages 11-18) are invited to spend an evening at the Aurora Branch Library, on Thursday, December 13, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm, for A Not-So-Merry GRINCHmas, to celebrate all things Grinch-y.

Register now by calling 812-926-0646 to save your spot in Aurora Branch Library’s own Whoville.
