West Cobb Regional Library is offering a variety of activities for the 2017 Summer Reading Program for all ages this week. Events include arts and crafts, movies, exercise, and more!
Mystery Box Mondays. On Monday, June 26th from 2 pm to 3 pm, 20 mystery boxes will be available in the children’s department for kids to work on a project that will help them build a better world. The mystery box could contain anything from arts and crafts supplies to make a special art project or building supplies to create their own work of architecture. This activity is limited, so be sure to pick up a free ticket 15 minutes before we start to reserve your mystery box. Some activities might require adult assistance. If you are unable to get a ticket for this week, be sure to check back next Monday, as our “Mystery Box Monday” is a reoccurring event.
Family Movie Night. On Tuesday, June 27th, we will be having a viewing of The LEGO Batman Movie from 6 pm to 8:30 pm. We will also have a LEGO “build-it” station where LEGO novices and experts alike can build their very own creation. Come early to enjoy some socialization and show off your LEGO building skills. Bring your favorite movie snacks and beverages and enjoy the show. This film is rated PG.
Teen Summer Yoga. On Wednesday, June 28th from 6 pm to 7 pm Jessica Blowers, a yoga expert and teacher, will be hosting a free Teen Summer yoga class. Tweens 12 and older will learn about the health benefits yoga has to offer, from improving balance to increasing muscle strength. No registration is required, but participants will need to wear comfortable clothing and bring their own yoga mat or a towel. This is a reoccurring event this summer, so if you can’t make teen yoga this week, be sure to check out our schedule for other times.
Jessica Blowers will also be offering free adult Summer Yoga classes this summer every Wednesday from 7 pm to 8 pm. Blowers has been practicing yoga for 15 years, and has been teaching for 2 years.
Pig Tales Writing Workshop. On Thursday, June 29th from 11 am to 12:30 pm, we are offering a free writing workshop to help kids in grades K-8 get ready for the fifth annual Pig Tales Writing Competition. All children attending any public, private, or home school in Cobb County are encouraged to write a short story or an essay about how they would make the world a better place in 750 words or less. We will be offering tips on how to get started for kids in grades K-3 from 11 am to 11:45 am, and for kids in grades 4-8 from noon to 12:30 pm. Winners of the Pig Tales Writing Competition will be awarded at the City of Kennesaw’s Pigs & Peaches Festival on August 26th.
