Any costumes and accessories remaining will be donated to a local charity. Adult and teen volunteers are needed on Friday and Saturday to help with the swap.

Wii Sports for Adults

Every Wednesday. Do you love to golf, but don't want to deal with the weather? Maybe you were a bowler, but your arthritis keeps you from lifting the ball. We'll use the large plasma TV and Nintendo Wii in the Teen Reading Room to stay fit. Join us and learn to play Wii Sports!  Learn to use the Wii-mote, a light-weight, motion-detecting controller that you swing like a golf club, baseball bat, bowling ball or tennis racquet. Bring a friend or two and give it a try! No registration required -- just drop in!
