MakeyMakey @ Mission

Posted in Uncategorized on July 27, 2016 by missionlibraryteens

What do you do when you want a video game for Teen Time, but the library doesn’t have it? Simple! Make your own version! Teens at Mission Library did just that with the Makey Makey–a circuit board kit that plugs into a device with a USB. Teens created their own version of Guitar Hero.

Toni, Kurt and Cornell

Posted in Uncategorized on July 19, 2016 by Cody Teens

What do Toni Morrison and Kurt Vonnegut have in common? Yes, they are both prolific authors with thousands of fans, but did you know that they both attended Cornell? I too did not know this until I did some extensive research into both of their lives after reading Cat’s Cradle and Beloved back to back. Cat’s Cradle is one of Vonnegut’s most famous pieces of work. It chronicle the life of John, a writer who ends up visiting a dystopian society called San Lorenzo. His journey is filled with mystery, tragedy and intrigue, but I won’t spoil it for you. Morrison’s Beloved is the tail of a group of women haunted by and evil spirit at the end of the 19th century. These women face times of trial and incredible hardship but they find unity in their sisterhood. After reading both of these books, something seemed similar to me. These stories are expansive, full of beautiful prose and carefully selected words, but most of all, they are societally influenced. They examine the problems with society through satire and searing language. I’m not sure what these two authors learned during their years at Cornell, but I am thankful for whatever it was. Check out these books if you want to laugh, cry and understand the world we live in just a little bit better. You won’t regret it.

Pikachu Plushes at Cody

Posted in Uncategorized on July 19, 2016 by Cody Teens

With Pokemón Go going viral, we here at Cody library decided to have a little fun of our own. We gathered yellow felt and sewing equipment and went to work on creating a classic Pokémon, Pikachu. We sewed him together meticulously over the course of Teen Time, stopping to eat the occasional cookie, and by the end of the hour, we each had a puffy yellow Pokémon to take home. Join us next Tuesday at 3pm for another Pokémon themed activity. We will be hosting a Pokémon Go party here at Cody Library. There will be arts and crafts, games, snacks and of course, Pokémon!
