It's Friday at the Library! Every Friday after the library closes, we'll have awesome weekly programs from 6:30-8:30PM in Room 119.
- Teen Advisory Committee (TAC)

Are you interested in computers, engineering, building things, or just playing with cool technology? Then you should be coming to the library’s Makerspace on the third Friday of each month. This semester’s project is building a 3D Augmented Reality sandbox to display and use at the library and around town.
January: Planning phase—designing the table and determining what parts are needed to build it, and determining what computer components will be required to build the computer to run the 3D projection.
February: Construction—measuring and cutting lumber, squaring up parts, drilling pilot holes, and screwing all the boards together to build the table. Check out our pictures on Facebook!
March: Assembling—putting together all the computer components to build a computer. Painting the sandbox to make it safer/splinter-free.
April: Programming—installing the Linux operating system and the software to control the projector & Kinect sensor bar, then calibrating the sensor to varying depths.

- Fandom Friday
March's fandom will be DC! Check back for more information soon!
Our Star Wars Fandom Friday in January was awesome, and our February one was MARVEL-ous! The rest of the spring lineup includes Doctor Who in April, and Steven Universe in May.
Video Game Desgin Club allows teens to learn programming basics by creating their own video game using Alice 3.3, which is a free drag-and-drop visual programming interface. VGDC meets on the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month.
Spring Video Game Design Club signups are now open! This spring we are expanding the program to allow 20 participants. Our computer lab still has only 10 desktop computers, so if you have a laptop, we're inviting you to bring it along.
