Happy August everyone!

Last Friday, we had a magical birthday party for our dear fi ctional friend, Harry Potter – us and 15 teens celebrated his champagne birthday with cake, a game of Quidditch, and wand-making. If Ron was there, he would have given the festivities a hearty “blimey”!

This week, you better lock your windows and doors, because it’s Zombie Week! We’re having lots of creepy monstrous fun so far. Tomorrow, we have stories and games for kids aged 5 to 8, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m., and for kids aged 9 to 12 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m.

Tomorrow evening at 6:00 p.m., we’re going to watch Dawn of the Dead. All teens are invited to attend, but be warned, it’s really scary!

On Friday, kids of all ages can come dressed up as a zombie from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and we’ll have games, crafts, and a competition for ‘Best Zombie Walk’.

Also, as a reminder to teens: if you show up to our teen activities and tell us the last thing you read, you will be able to enter our draw to win a Kobo eReader at the end of the summer. I know, I know, it’s the best prize ever.

And don’t forget to send or bring in your pictures of yourself or a friend doing their ‘geek’ while also reading, by August 25th. You could win major great prizes if your photo is picked!
