Cool teen stuff for hot summer

Summer becomes wild and wacky with Wild and Wacky Sizzling Summer Wednesdays for teens at the Nelson Library.

Summer becomes wild and wacky with Wild and Wacky Sizzling Summer Wednesdays for teens at the Nelson Library. Teen Services Librarian Joanne Harris — with help from teen advisors Noelle and Emma — has cooked up some hot activities.

“Cool teens really do hang out at the library, especially in the heat of the summer” said Harris. “Now, with our Wednesday summer program, there’s even more cool stuff to do.”

The free program, running most summer Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5 p.m., includes prizes, snacks, and a chance to learn something cool. On July 11, teens can learn to make buttons with a professional button-making machine — just bring your own slogan. Get your game on July 18 with retro board games or Wii and Xbox 360. The July 25 program offers a new spin on an old standby, with Altered Books. Take an old book and recycle it into something extraordinary!

Decorate your nails using polish, designs, stencils and comics in a special nail art program on August 18 (teens are asked to pre-register for this program only by calling Joanne at 505-5683 or emailing jharris@nelson.ca). And August 15 is mystery Wednesday — stay tuned for details.

Watch for details also on the very cool Teen Summer Reading Challenge. Who needs to hang out on a hot street corner when things are wild, wacky, and sizzling at the library?
