Pleasant Hill Library Events starting August 5th, 2010

Events at the Pleasant Hill Library for Teens in August
The teen summer reading program, Make Waves at your Library, continues.  All teens between 12 and 17 are welcome to come and register for the program.  There are no requirements for reading or homework, just plenty of incentives to keep you reading over the summer and coming to the library. Just for signing up you receive prizes and then all summer you can submit weekly book reviews and you could win more prizes for that!  Don't forget to turn in your permission slip for coming to the lock-in on Friday August13th, at the Galaxy Library in Apple Valley. 
     On Monday, August 9th  from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Leonardo's Basement will be teaching teens how to make t-shirts in our T-Wreck program.  No supplies needed, just bring your creativity and leave with a brand new, really cool and original t-shirt.  Space is limited so registration is required.  This is a Minnesota Legacy Program.  Teens may register online at the library calendar or call 651-438-0200.
     On Saturday, August 7 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., we will be watching a popular film at the library, and there will be plenty of singing and dancing along.  The library will provide the snacks.  Stop by the library to find out what the film is.   This film  is appropriate for all teens and is part of the programming of the Minnesota Legacy Program.
     On Tuesday August 10, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., we will be rocking out to Wii Rock Band at the library.  All teens are welcome and there will be snacks provided.  Come be "cool" at the library!
     Please call the library for more information on any of these programs or to register, and we look forward to seeing you "make waves" at the library!  651-438-0200, Pleasant Hill Library, 1490 S. Frontage Road, Hastings.

It's a Circus at the Library!
Children of all ages are invited to the Pleasant Hill Library on Tuesday, August 10 at 10:30 a.m. for a fun program featuring the amazing Gnip Gnop Circus.  Children may step right up and allow the circus performers to astound and amaze them with their magnificent glow-in-the-dark Ping Pong ball circus.  This performance is guaranteed to delight everyone with thrills, grace, and marvels of nature. 

There is no charge for the event, but due to limited space, a free ticket is required for admission.  Free tickets will be distributed on a first-come-first serve basis when the library opens at 10 a.m.
