KINGSTON — Be part of Teen Tech week in March! Come to the library, create your own computer game, eat pizza, play the games you create and vote on a winner on Wed., March 13, from 4:00-7:00 p.m. The winner’s game will be featured in our Computer Game Tournament on Sat., March 16, from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

What better way to spend the last day of winter break (Fri. March 1) than a Harry Potter Marathon? We will start with the first movie when we open at 10:00 a.m. and continue on into the night (11:00 p.m.)! Pizza will be served around 12:00, 6:00, and 10:00 p.m. Popcorn and beverages will be available all day and night!

Have you ever heard of a Peep-o-Rama? It’s a diorama using marshmallow peeps! And what better way to build your set than with Rice Crispy Treats?

Come join Miss Sue on Fri., March 8, 4:00 p.m. in the library’s kitchen to bake these delicious treats and play with them too!

School is out for the day on March 15, so visit the library at 2:00 p.m. for an exciting animal show, presented by the New Hampshire Audubon Society.

We will compare the similarities and differences between reptiles and amphibians in this look at New Hampshire’s scaly and slimy creatures.

Live animals and props will demonstrate some amazing characteristics of these cold-blooded critters.

There are a limited number of seats, so signup is required.
