Web 2.Yo! Gets a New Time

Now that SRP is over Web 2.Yo! has moved to a different day and time. We will now meet on Wednesdays (4PM-5:30PM). Teens, it is a great chance to learn about so many cool Web sites, so stop on by.

Ice Cold Novels

As you know, it is very hot outside these days. The temperature has been rising into the triple digits as of late. Why not cool off with a good novel? Born in Ice, set in Ireland, is Nora Robert's 2nd book in the Born in Trilogy. Born of Ice is written by Sherrilyn Kenyon and is set in the Ichidian universe. In the story, the League and its assassins continue to rule. You can really cool off with Linda Howard's Ice. The novel is set during an ice storm. Let the descriptions of bitter winter weather and icy conditions cool you off.

No Paint, No Problem!

There’s one more Web 2.Yo! class left for the teens this summer. It’s been a blast. Checkout the painting I made with one of the many cool Web sites we’ve explored. It is a site where you can paint in the style of Jackson Pollock.

Abstract Painting

Want to know more about it? If so, then just come by and we’ll show it to you and a whole bunch more. Once SRP is over the class will be moving to a different day and time. We’ll keep you posted on any changes.
