ATKINSON — Tweens or teens, we have book discussions geared for your enjoyment with friends your age, stories to share, themes to ponder, and candy to consume. Tweens (grades 5-8) generally meet the first Wednesday of the month, and teens (grades 9-12) meet the second Wednesday. Both meetings start at 6:30 p.m. We have enough copies of the titles for cardholders to borrow one.

On Wed., February 5, the tweens will be meeting to discuss ‘The Wanderer’ by Sharon Creech. Teens will meet on Wed., February 12 to discuss ‘The Name of the Star’ by Maureen Johnson. Newcomers and friends from other towns are welcome. Please register in person or online so we know how much candy to have on hand. If you have any questions, please direct them to Kathy Watson, Youth Services Director.

We also have knitting for beginners or for those who’ve been knitting for decades. Just bring needles and yarn if you are new and our ‘professionals’ can help you. Seasoned knitters should bring their on-going projects. Come cozy up in the Atkinson Room of the library, share some laughs, drop a stitch or two, and make some new friends. Knitters are here on Tuesdays and Friday mornings beginning at 10:30 a.m.

Keenagers (adults NOT in their teen years) are invited to play Wii Sports on Friday mornings at 10:30 a.m. on our Wii system. This is a great time to come participate or observe. Wii will give opportunity to try bowling, golf, tennis, baseball, or skiing. Come for part or all of the time allotted. This is an adult only event and the participants choose the games. The current crowd is all about bowling! Stop by and hear all the laughter and enjoy some good, friendly competition.

If you’re wondering what the Jack Frost Jamboree is, wonder no more! Stop by on Sat., January 25, between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and check out the food, crafts, games, snowshoeing, miniature golf, and all around good family fun! Children under 10 must be accompanied by adults.
