Anyone out there playing Pokemon Go? Good news! Staatsburg Library is a local gym where teams can battle their Pokemon. How many Team Red, Yellow or Blue members do we have out there that read our blog? Leave your team color in the comment section below. If you haven't heard of the game, it's a cell phone app that you can download and walk around our village to find Pokemon and catch them. Resupply your Pokemon supplies at the local Pokemon stops. Luckily one is right across the street from the gym! Send us your pics if you have any good ones at the library! We will post them. Here are some of our pics below from a Pokemon trip to the library gym today. Be sure to stay safe out there as you find Pokemon around locally!
Summer is finally here! Lots of fun events are planned at the library for teens. Hope to see you all there. We will post pictures of the summer events in the photo gallery section of the blog (look for the tab above). Also, we've posted some pictures to the BOB (Battle of the Books) page as well. Explore the website to keep up to date and make sure you come to the events!
The Homeschool Teen MENSA reading club held an end of the year meeting with a Gatsby themed game, music, cupcakes and discussion. December's meeting was led by teen volunteer, Orla H. The teens in this group are aiming to earn an Excellence in Reading award from MENSA by completing the following reading list, http://www.mensaforkids.org/MFK2/assets/File/Achieve/Excellence_in_Reading_9-12.pdf
Do you have any photos of the Hudson Valley that you took and would like to share on the Teen Blog? Or any poems (hint, hint, about the pic above) or art you'd like to publish as a teen? Send us your submissions to the submission page. Also, want to give a shout out to our Staatsburg teen photographer, Eoghan, who won a ribbon for one of his photo entries at the Dutchess County Fair. Congrats!
Lots of fun tonight as teens made cupcakes. Snickerdoodle, banana chocolate chip, devils food cake with Nutella were some of the flavors made tonight. Don't miss out on next Monday's decorating event!
