Tweens in the House!

Posted on December 13, 2013 at 6:00 am

Once a month, at 4pm, local tweens (grades 4-6) get together at the library to learn, create, and discover (and let’s not forget the snacks).

Both the North Spokane and Spokane Valley Libraries have Tween Clubs (4th Thursday at Spokane Valley and 3rd Tuesday at North Spokane) you can choose the one closest to you, or try out both!

Our staff have planned some amazing activities for the coming months, check them out below!

Head’s up! Learn how to make projectiles with stuff you can find around the house. We’ll discover a bit about physics and velocity, and the many ways to shoot a marshmallow across the room!

Feb 18 Go For the Gold
Join us for a fun-filled afternoon of Olympic inspired challenges, in honor of the Winter Olympics.

Mar 18 Cupcakes!
Come see what you can make when we set out frosting, candy, and sprinkles. Kathy, Yoke’s Dessert Specialist is coming to give us professional tips and share a little about how math is an important part of this tasty career. Whether your cupcake is creepy or fancy, it will be a delicious work of art.
