Come celebrate Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) with the Canton Public Library. Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday that honors family and friends who have passed on. Learn more about this unique holiday, decorate sugar skull masks and try your hand at making a 'nicho' or shadow box frame. Nichos are shadow box style frames that are often featured on Mexican alters or hanging in the home. This program is for tweens and teens.
Join us if you dare on a cryptic adventure through time and space as we encounter rare monsters from around the world. You'll be split into teams where you'll prep for your journey choosing a selection of survival items. Each team will need to know how to survive monster attacks and defeat each foe if they plan on getting out alive. Open to all tweens and teens.
Do you love making up stories, poems or dreaming about writing a novel one day? Do you want to meet other teens who share the same passion? Join us for an informal session where you can meet other writers, do a few exercises, talk about how to improve your work and bounce ideas off each other. You will never be required to share your work, but if you'd like to, this is a safe space and judgment free zone. Your stories and poems produced during these sessions will also be bound together at the end of the school year, creating a book or zine of your work. Open to all middle and high school students.
Join us as we learn about a different American Girl character at each meeting through crafts, games and activities. We will explore both the historical characters and the modern day girls. No prior knowledge of the books or character is needed. If you have an American Girl doll feel free to bring her, and a friend! This program is open to ages 8-12.
