Spring Flower Bulb Fundraiser by the Friends of HTFL

The Friends of HTFL are, once again, raising money for the Library. Don't miss the opportunity to beautify your garden with your purchase of flower bulbs through the Friends' online Spring Fundraiser.  Purchase the bulbs online and they will be shipped directly to your house.  All you need is the trowel!  

50% of the profits go to the Friends to help the Library purchase the "extras" such as televisions, audio equipment, Summer Reading Club programs for your enjoyment-I could go on and on.  

Click here for the link to the website to make your purchase today!  Thank you.

Featuring a monthly art challenge that students can tackle however they choose. It doesn't matter if it's painted, written, or interpretively danced - we just want to see you flex your creative muscles!

HTFL Game

Thursday

Our favorite way to socialize? GAMING. Lazy gaming, competitive gaming, whatever. Just get that controller in our hands. Keep an eye out for tournament announcements! Some T-Rated games will be played in this club.

Still from 2:30PM - 4PM and usually in the Community Room in the basement of the Library.

Teens love to eat, so here's their opportunity to learn their way around the kitchen. Don't worry, we're conscientious about allergies! This runs concurrently with HTFL Game. 

Teen Advisory Board

Creative Writing 4-11-14 Odes

 

Ode to the Sparkling Icicle

Oh how the water trickles down branches

And forms you lovely, sparkling icicles.

But when winter is over, you melt, 

Until next year.

Oh exquisite, elegant icicle.

            by Dorothy

 

 

Ode to Cinnamon Buns

You are a lovely roll up of cinnamon and cream,

How you melt in my mouth, when I bite into you,

You pair perfectly with the Sunday morning routine,

Oh sweet morning treat, 

What would I do without you!

Lego Club - 4.2.14

 

We made it through the winter, kiddos!  During our LAST week of the winter session of Lego Club, we learned about the Pony Express (holiday that takes place on 4/3) and built our own ways to deliver the mail.  We had quite the creations today!  See them for yourself below:
