Waiting for More Lives on Candy Crush? Grab a Sweet Read! 
So I just discovered Candy Crush Saga, and I do believe it will suck my soul dry before (and if) I ever have the willpower to delete it from my phone. Have you discovered this incredibly addictive game yet? You can play it on your smartphone, iPad, or come to the library and use a computer to play it on Facebook.

If you need to kill some time while waiting for more lives, here are some ideas:


Sweet Fiction, Non-fiction and DVDs


Sweet Links


Some of these look really cool and fun.

So get reading! Or crafting and baking you have 30 minutes between lives to waste or until your Facebook friends give you more. And just keep telling yourself, I can quit whenever I want Thats what Ill be telling myself.

Digital Drawing & Painting With the Make Lab  
The Make Lab has been travelling to branches around town this month for imaging programs using our digital drawing pens. Teens can draw or paint on the computer using a variety of brushes that imitate actual paint brushes, pens, pencils, or dry media (like charcoal). The program we use also has a photo painting feature that allows you to create digital drawings and paintings from regular pictures.
Here are some examples of Photo Painting (click each for full size):



The original image is on the left. The image on the right was created using the charcoal brush tool.
