SHELF SURFERS: BOOK HANGOUT FOR TEENS


Madison Bibliomaniacs has now become SHELF SURFERS. This is a BOOK HANGOUT FOR TEENS, where you have fun activities and chat about books. 

Come and play REVERSE CHARADES – one person guesses while a group of people act out the word or phrase!  The theme will be “Lost in the Hundred Acre Woods,” to tie in with our “On the Same Page” book Winnie-the-Pooh. You’ll also get to make YUMMY honey cake pops! 

For ages 12-18.

ON THE SAME PAGE: A VERY POOH-RIFFIC BIRTHDAY
 

Friday, February 25th, from 7:30-9pm

Winnie-the-Pooh ends with a birthday party; and since it’s the library’s birthday as well, this seems a fitting ending for 2022’s On the Same Page. Join us for cake and ice cream, balloon animals, pin the tail on Eeyore, and other activities. We’ll also look at photos taken on last week’s Stuffed Animal Sleepover and make sure our friends didn’t get into any mischief.
