As always, school vacation week at the Woonsocket Harris Public Library is packed with activities for teens. On Monday February 18th Lisa Goodnow from Rob Roy Academy will be here to talk about everything associated with the academy, the history, the classes they have, and even financial aid. This event is from 3:00 to 4:00 and is open to everyone and will be held in the back of the Children’s Room.

Then on Wednesday, February 20th the library presents Bath Bombs! From 6:00 to 7:00 in the Children’s Program Room. You’ll get a chance to take home your own fizzing scented addition to bath time after being taught how they are made. Supplies are limited so space is only available for the first 20 participants. This event is open to kids over ten as well as adults. Sign up by calling 769-9044 or stop by to register.

Don’t forget the regular Teen time is still being held every Friday from 2:00 to 4:30. This is a chance for anyone in middle school or high school to hang out, eat lots of snacks and play with the new Playstation VR.
