Holi Water War Recap

The Summer Reading Program (SRP) has come and gone and boy did we have fun. Hundreds of teens enjoyed all the offerings we had for them. One of the highlights had to be the Holi Water War. If that event didn’t scream Fun Had By All then nothing did. Kudos to our Rebecca, our Young Adult Librarian, and her fabulous assistant Margaret for putting on such a great program and a great SRP!

Holi Water War This Saturday

Teens, join us this Saturday for a Holi inspired water war. Using the pigments from the Indian festival of Holi we will engage in a colorful battle sure to brighten your day. NOTE: The pigments used during Holi WILL stain clothing and may temporarily dye skin or hair. DRESS ACCORDINGLY.

We will gather at 3:00pm in front of the Glass Display Case on the 1st floor and then walk to the field behind the staff parking lot. Wet teens will NOT be allowed back into the library unless they change to dry clothes. The Library closes at 5:00pm on Saturdays. A signed permission form is required to participate. See the reference desk on the second floor for paperwork. We’ll see you there!
