Teens: Do you want a say in what kind of activities the library has for you?
Join our Teen Advisory Group! You can make new friends and make a difference in the community at the same time (and earn community service hours at the same time!)
There will be FUN, SNACKS and an honest chat about improving library services and organizing programs for teens.
We meet monthly on the 4th Tuesday of every month from 6:30-7:30 PM in the Conference room. Our first meeting is February 24th!
Contact me (Becky), the new Teen Librarian if you have any questions! RMachetta@aclibrary.org
Mural created by our 2010 TAG group.
Kids ages 5-11 are invited to join us for the fun of creating a Lego project on the last Monday evening every month.
Space is limited. Please obtain a ticket to attend. Tickets are free and will be handed out starting at 6:00 pm.

The weather is getting chillier, and that means it’s time for some special sweet treats – including hot cocoa!
Here are a few recipes:
To make homemade ‘instant’ cocoa:
- 3 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 1/4 cups cocoa
- 1 tablespoon table salt
Combine these three ingredients and store them in an airtight container. Add 2 tbs. of this cocoa powder to 1 cup of hot milk. Stir and enjoy!
To make rich, decadent hot cocoa, try Polar Express Hot Chocolate (from the blog Honey & Fitz):
- 1.5 cups of heavy cream
- 1 can of sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
- 2 cups of bittersweet chocolate chips
- 6 cups of milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix all ingredients together (stirring regularly) for 30-40 minutes. This is also slow-cooker friendly – add all ingredients and cook on low for a few hours.Come in a check out our recipe books for more delicious ideas to spice up your holidays.
