Teens: Come have fun with food!

Crosby Branch Library is teaming up with Precinct 2 this summer to bring you some awesome teen programs.  This Tuesday (6/26) come to the Crosby Community Center to play with your food!  We'll be making some easy food that you can make on your own at home, while you're babysitting... whenever!  The best part is, you get to eat whatever you make :) 


FREE Audiobooks!

Each week this summer, the awesome people at SYNC are giving away two free, downloadable audio books.  There will be a classic and a contemporary title each week, and they're giving away some really great books.  The books for week 1 are The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch and The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck.  Get yours here!
