Our teen volunteers planned and presented a fish-themed storytime on December 27, 2012. They shared stories, activities, and a fishbowl craft with some young patrons. A good time was had by all. Thanks, Volunteens!
Batman fans this July competed in a number of physical and mental challenges to hone their bat-skills. We indulged in some tasty bat-snax and were pleased that our Batman beacons turned out so well!
Rebecca Huston, henna and tattoo artist from Heathen Ink (Summit, IL), returned to the Huntley Library in July 2012 to share the history of henna body art with area teens. All participants went home with a temporary henna tattoo (lasting around 2 – 4 weeks), and information about how to create henna art of their own!
To celebrate the release of Rick Riordan’s new book, “Son of Neptune,” the Huntley Area Public Library invited fans of the series to participate in an Olympics event – Camp Half-Blood style! In addition to trivia contests, toga relays, and a scavenger hunt, the kids got to slay Medusa (a bunch of times). If Huntley is ever invaded by Gorgons, we can feel comfortable knowing our fate is in the hands of these young heroes!
This July, presenter, Sandy Homuth, gave area teens beauty tips and walked them through the steps of giving (and receiving) a manicure. Everyone left feeling a little more pampered (and sparkly!) than before!
