TONIGHT! Craft Night ~ Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Scrabble Pendants

WEDNESDAY, July 25 7:30 pm


Your ‘canvas’ is a tiny little Scrabble tile…the possibilities are endless!  If you have something tiny, made out of paper, and it’s glue-able onto a Scrabble tile (photos, fancy paper, drawings), you can make it into a little charm for a necklace at our upcoming workshop.

Scrabble Pendants at the ACL

Wednesday, July 25th at 7:30 pm


Please bring a good pair of scissors or an Exacto knife

There will be the pendants and all the fixins…including a vast array of paper goodies and punches for your use (though you may feel free to bring your own tiny papers and supplies, as well).  As we get a sense of the numbers, we’ll figure out a suggested donation to cover our costs for materials (probably within the $5-$10 range per person).  In order to ensure we have enough supplies for our event, please RSVP to if you think you will be joining us.  Could be a fun mid-summer Girls’ Night Out while the schedules are slow…hope to see you there! capability mom

TOMORROW! Harry Potter Introduction To Latin Party
Thursday, July 26 from 5:30-6:30 pm

Join us for this unique party brought to us by some of our ACL Teen Summer Volunteers!  If have kids who love Harry Potter or if you have a penchant for Latin, you will not want to miss this…there will be a large Trojan horse and an erupting volcano, too.

Here’s the pitch from our teen organizers:


“Latin is a dead language! Why do you study it? Isn’t boring and difficult to understand?” You might be asking those questions – and yes Latin can be boring and difficult, but it can be interesting too! And it certainly is not dead. Come join us at the Auburndale Community Library on Thursday July 25th at 5:30 for our Harry Potter Introduction to Latin Party! Books like Harry Potter and the Hunger Games are full of Latin references, themes, pieces of the Latin language, and names of famous ancient Romans! We will explore Latin by looking at the Latin references in Harry Potter, hearing stories about Ancient Rome and even do some crafts! So what are you waiting for? Grab your broomstick and some friends and enter a world of Harry Potter and Latin!


Pajama Storytime and Games at the ACL

Wednesday, August 1 at 7:00 pm
A family event at the ACL!  We’ll have games and stories for kids–bring the whole family.  Refreshments provided by Breadsong Bakery and a selection of games provided by Just Next Door.  What a terrific way to show your support for our local Auburndale businesses who are co-sponsoring this event.

You can wear your PJs…or just come as you are!
