Check Out Challenge

FullSizeRenderDuring April and May of this year we ran the Check Out Challenge. The point of the challenge was to showcase some of the amazing digital collections we offer in addition to our print collections. Each participant had to complete 7 tasks in order to enter the contest. Each week we gave away local prizes to our patrons that had completed their entries. NIOGA gave away 3 large prizes that any entrant from the 21 libraries could win. We were thrilled when NIOGA drew the name of one of our patrons for second prize, an XBOX One console. You can see how excited Lucas was to win!

We would like to thank everyone that participated and hope that you continue to use the services we offer, regardless of format. Make sure to stop by and see us throughout the summer, we have lots more great programs and prizes to give away! Anyone ages 10-19 can enter to win a Sphero (the original version of the BB-8 robotic ball) and smaller weekly prizes are given away for ages 5-19. Make sure to pick a flyer at the library for more information.

Summer Events 2015

We have had some fantastic programs this summer. If you haven’t been to any there is still time to sign up! We got to see reptiles and dogs, build shelters, play games, and do an obstacle course. See if you can find someone you know in the pictures below or checkout all our photos on our flickr page. We still have programs on robotics and solar energy & recycling and learning to fly on the Eurobungy!

We got to meet Kye and Sgt. Draper. Everyone was very excited to pet this courageous canine.

The Parks program came to chill out in the library every week of our programs. They look like they had fun playing checkers on the floor!

And we got to shoot a nerf bow as part of our obstacle course.
