What do you get when you combine a Barbie head, Garfield body and the legs of assorted stuffed animals? A “Frankentoy”!
Join us at the Newport Public Library, July 19 from 3:45 – 5:30 pm, for a creative afternoon of assembling parts and pieces that can add up to some of the most wierd looking creatures on earth!! The library has all of the supplies necessary to design and make your own “Frankentoy”. Named after Dr. Frankenstein, this project is sure to entertain, awaken your inner-surgeon and produce a wide range of scarey things that go bump and boo in the night. Duct tape, hot glue, needle and thread, take your pick. You may need’em all.
As always, space is limited. Don’t hesitate to call or come by to sign up.
Our 2012 Teen Summer Reading Contest is now in full swing. Each week we hold raffle drawings for readers ages 12-18. It’s not too late to sign up, receive a glow in the dark prize, start reading and enter the raffle to win a variety of goodies; T-shirts, gift certificates, buckets of candy, movie tickets and more! Our theme this year is “Own The Night”. Not sure what to read? Ask one of our staff members to recommend a graphic novel, new fiction book or award winner. We’ve got something for everybody.
Hope to see you soon at our “Frankentoys” event.
