And the winners are....

Last week Jeff Evans performed at Monroe to a record number of attendees. Laughs were had by all but Melany and Patrick were especially excited because they were the lucky winners of the free bikes generously donated by the Monroe/Sultan Masons.

Library Laser Tag

Yes, you read that right. We are having laser tag in the library this Friday night (August 21) from 8-10pm. All teenagers are invited. We'll have organized games, friendly staff, and perhaps best of all, running in the library. You know you've always wanted to.

Totally free of charge. No signups required. Funded by the Friends of the Monroe Library.

It will be less lame than this:

Great week for Monroe youth

The Monroe Library has some amazing programs for youth this upcoming week. On Tuesday all school-age children are invited to come to the library for a magic show put on by black belt magician and "Creative Conjuror" Jeff Evans. Don't forget to complete the summer reading program so that you can be eligible to win one of the two bikes given away at this program as well. The show will happen at 2:00 in the meeting room.

If you are a teen, we have a really special program on Friday. You get to play laser tag in the library. I wish they offered me the chance to come play free laser tag in such a large building as the library when I was a teen. You don't even have to bring any equipment. Everything will be provided. This program will occur after hours on Friday at 8:00 pm and is only for teens. It is sure to be a fantastic time. Grab some of your friends and bring them out for this rare opportunity to play laser tag in your very own library.

All of the staff here at the Monroe Library look forward to seeing you at these programs. Don't miss out on such great opportunities.

Free Bikes.....

On Tuesday August 18th we will have the drawing for the free bikes at the Creative Conjuring Magic show at 2:00. One lucky boy and girl, who have completed the Summer Reading program and attend the program, will ride home on a brand new Mongoose bike generously donated by the Monroe/Sultan Masons.

World Peas

Guess who's invited to dinner?

"Cuisines of the Axis of Evil and Other Irritating States : a Dinner Party Approach to International Relations" by Chris Fair is just one of hundreds of interesting new books the Sno-Isle Library System has recently ordered.

Why not try a little dinner party diplomacy and serve up some world peas?
