"Twilight" the book party!

Hi again everyone! I'm here to remind you all that this Saturday, November 15th, at 9:00 am is the big book sale here at the library. Any of the teens who want/need volunteer hours can come help the Friends of the Oldsmar Library. Just give me a call, or drop in on Saturday, between 9 and 2:00 to help set up, or take down the sale. You can also volunteer to help set up for the Twilight party.

Then, at 6:00 the Twilight party begins, we will have music, games, Twilight themed crafts, and food. There will be prizes given out for various reasons (like winning the Twilight Trivia game), including 2 passes to the movie, and door prizes too! Come dressed as for a prom if you wish, it is not necessary to dress in prom clothes!
We will not be having any parties in December, so this is your last chance for a while to come have fun at the Library! I hope to see you all there! Remember ages 12 and up only, and call 813-749-1179 to register.
:) Miss Heidi
