Welcome to all new FHTC and ESU students! Thank you for making the Welcome Back Block Party an amazing experience! If you're not familiar with our fair city yet, click the Google Maps image for a set of directions to Emporia Public Library!
August has been a busy, but wonderful, month! We participated in the Welcome Back Block Party on the 18th and had a blast meeting everyone! Brand new YA programs rolled out this month, too, including Back to School with Doctor Who and Mystery Maker. This month, the project was both stationary and kinetic at the same time. If you guessed we'd be making mobiles, then you would be correct!
Remember: all YA programs are open to 6th graders through college-age students!
We hope everyone has an awesome first week of school!
