Teen Book Reviews!

"I read the book Exile's Journey by Erin Hunter, this is the latest book in Survivors. I love the series so much and this book was one of my favorites and it was so cool with all the twist and this one part that was cool, this was a great book."

"I thought the book Recess Warriors has a very interesting book. It put an interesting pretend. I liked how throughout the book, kids would talk about rules and fairness. I think this was a good book." -Luke S.

porco rosso

Our next AniManga Club meeting will be on Monday, July 16, at 4:00 p.m. We will watch Porco Rosso!

"Take flight with 'Porco Rosso', a valiant World War I flying ace! From tropical Adriatic settings to dazzling aerial maneuvers, this action-adventure from world-renowned animator Hayao Miyazaki is full of humor, courage, and chivalry.

When 'Porco'- whose face has been transformed into that of a pig by a mysterious spell- infuriates a band of sky pirates with his aerial heroics, the pirates hire Curtis, a rival pilot, to 'get rid' of him. On the ground, the two pilots compete for the affections of the beautiful Gina.But it is int he air where the true battles are waged. Will our hero be victorious?"

Ages 11-high school, snacks provided.

Maker Madness Summer Challenge


Join our Teen Maker Madness Summer Challenge! At the beginning of this 3-D printing workshop, attendees will be given a challenge (for example, to create a 3-D monster), and given the hour to create their object. After the class, the designs will be printed using the library's 3-D printer and put on display for the remainder of the summer.

Monday, July 9, 4:00 p.m.

Ages 10-High School.
