The library is more than just books

BRANT LAKE The Friends of the Horicon Free Library are wondering what the local kids like to do, and theyre trying to find out. Kids in seventh through 12th grade will be receiving a survey, asking them what type of programs they would enjoy. Library Friend Sally Joiner said the library is a lot more than books. We want teens to know that the library has Internet service, CDs, movies and programs that they would enjoy, Joiner said. The library is putting together a Monopoly tournament, where four players will sit at several tables. Each week, the winners will move on to the next table, and at the end of the tournament, the final winner will be driven to school in a limousine and receive prizes donated by local businesses and organizations. All players will be treated to a pizza party after the tournament is over. Joiner said the library is considering programs on hip hop dance lessons, kick boxing, tips and techniques to prepare for the SATs, a teen book club or comic book exchange and discussion. Theyve also been considering a pizza and CD exchange, golf workshops, cooking classes, board game night, video game challenge, yoga, job skills workshops, Harry Potter book discussions and sports talk. Once the survey is complete, Joiner said the Friends of the Horicon Library will hopefully have a better idea of what to offer area teens. Meanwhile, anyone interested in any of these programs or classes can call 260-0042.
