Moe.down Bake Sale a Huge Success!

 The moe.down bake sale for the Turin Library was a very successful day.  Baked goods brought in $405.25, and there was also $141.15 in the donation jar! A big shout out to all of our wonderful bakers, and also a huge thanks to Evan Rosman for organizing the book drive for the library.  Many festival goers donated books for our shelves or book sale.... we received 224 books, 3 XBox 360 games, office supplies, and colored copy paper! Thanks go out  to our salespeople, Anne Russell and family, Carole Murch, and Pooniel Bumsted!  Wonderful weekend all around!

Summer Reading Program Ends with a Fizz and a Boom at the Turin Park!

 The Summer Reading kids met their challenge of reading 1,200, by reading 1,690!  We had a great time this summer.  Thanks to everyone who participated or helped us out, and a special thank you goes out to the parents who brought their kids each week!  We ended with water balloons at the park, sno-cones, parachute play and goody bags!    Check out our photos at the following link.    https://flic.kr/s/aHsjZ7FMHE    

                                                                                                                        

Summer Reader Challenge is 1,200 Books!

 We have been having a lot of fun so far here at the library.  So far we have made lab coats, mad scientist heads and hair.  We had an obstacle course thanks to our teen volunteers Kayley and Courtney!  We have experimented with mentos and alka seltzer, magnets, gloop, our parachute and other things.  We had a visit with Mr Fizztastic and his science/magic show and we rocked it out with the Sock Rockerz!  The kids chose 1,200 books to read in 5 weeks.  So far we are half way through and they have only read 402 books.  They better get going or the grownups get to throw water balloons at them!  If they read 1,200 books, they throw water balloons at the grownups!  Watch for a link soon to all of our photos.  https://www.flickr.com/photos/turlibphotos/

Great turnout for Summer Reading!

 We had a wonderful turnout for our first day!  Kids made their "Mad Scientists" and took photos for next week.  Older kids made a "Lab Coat" with t-shirts and fabric markers.  Next week we'll set up our challenge, do an experiment, and go through the obstacle course! Join us next time, or on Friday the 11th for a free magic show!  Click on the link for photos of our first day....
