The Aurora Public Library District will be having a Tween Book Club twice over the summer. 

We will be discussing the book Space Case by Stuart Gibbs!  

 

12-year old Dashiell Gibson is the very first human to successfully move to and live on the moon.  This sounds exciting…but Dashiell is lonely. Kids are not allowed out of the moon base. Worse, the one kid who Dashiell is there with has no interest in anything other than video games.

Dasheill is bored…until the bases top scientist is found dead.   Dashiell knows that Dr. Holtz had discovered something new about the moon.  Dash thinks that someone has killed Dr. Holtz to keep him quiet.

If this sounds interesting to you please stop by the library to pick up your book and then plan to join us:

Saturday July 13 , 2019 at 12:30 pm at The Dillsboro Library

OR

Tuesday, July 16, 2019 at 6:30 pm at The Aurora Public Library

There is no registration required for this free event.  Stop by the library to pick up your book beforehand and join us at one of the discussions.  

See you there!  🙂

 

VAL-UN-TINE’S DAY FUN

As February 14 is fast approaching, many of you may be wondering how you’ll be spending Valentine’s Day, a holiday enjoyed by few and suffered through by many. If you are a Tween (someone we’re saying is between the ages of 8 – 12), then you should plan on joining us at the Aurora Public Library on Thursday, February 14 for a Val-UN-tine’s Day celebration. We will be showing our love for books and fun—nothing gushy here (except the slime)! From 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., there will be book talks & poetry breaks, games, cookie decorating, and slime fun, all rolled into one fun evening. It’ll be the most fun you’ve had this winter (unless you’ve been kissed by your dog!).

Register by stopping by the library or by call (812) 926-0646.

 

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.
