On Tuesday we held our Shake, Shake, Shake! event, where kindergarten through fifth graders explored the link between music and food. They crafted small rattling percussion instruments, feasted on homemade milkshakes, and boogied to fun dances like the YMCA (pictured at right), the Cupid Shuffle, and the Chicken Dance.
At the Be Your Own Barista event on Thursday, teens turned our library into a hopping coffeehouse. They decorated personal journals, learned to make lattes, root beer floats or milkshakes, and sang their hearts out during karaoke. Katy Perry, Adele, and Carrie Underwood were popular picks that kept the party going.
Our next round of programs focuses on the most important meal of the day – breakfast! Please contact the Youth Services Department at 847-677-5277 x234 to register.
