Teen Hangs is back!

Teen Hang Promotional Flier

After a long hiatus for Summer Reading, Teen Hangs is returning! Starting this week every Monday at 3:00pm we're going to have game consoles, computers, and game tables set up for teen enjoyment. Oh, there's also snacks and drinks every week too. So it's probably the coolest best thing you could do Monday afternoons, so you should probably start coming and never stop.

Video Game History

The Winter Olympic Games start on Friday.  Thousands of athletes from around the globe will compete for the gold and the glory.  I certainly won't be one of them, but at least I can still compete when it comes to video games.  Sort of.  I could kick some pixels in the days of Space Invaders, Bubble Bobble, and BurgerTime. And if something went wrong, I could always blame the controllers. "It's the button!  It's sticking!" or "I'm telling you, this joystick is messed up."  Admit it.  You know you did it too.

National Gaming Day is November 14th!!

On Saturday the 14th, the entire nation will be trying to set a record for the most people playing the same game.  Game Time on Saturday will be from 2 until 4 pm.  Come check out the new games and play the game for the record.
