We can continue to gather in the Teen Lounge, or, if weather warrants, outside -
byob (bring your own blanket!)

Informal polling found consensus to be that
a) a later time was better, and,
b) alternating weeks would open more opportunity for outdoor & alternate activities like
volunteerism, sports, hikes, jamband, beach days....
As always, this fabulous ongoing experimental socio-educational adventure is subject to feedback & change to best suit the contentment of our community.

*We tried to alternate the Tuesdays with "Cash Flow" weeks, so that there are still activities weekly.

Room 2 Workshop Days at GPL are a Wrap!

Thank you, everyone, for your energy and participation!
We have used our 12 day allotment for the library June-June calendar year,
and will look forward to scheduling new times for next year.
But, we're still looking forward to more fun together throughout the spring...!
