New programs coming to Anythink Bennett

Thanks for our awesome guides, Eric and Molly, Anythink Bennett has some new programming coming for all ages. 

First, we invite you to our weekly Creation Lab that will run every Thursday from 2 pm-6 pm. The Creation Lab is an open environment for customers to make whatever they would like with our equipment and assistance. There will be stations set up for art, electronics, sewing, virtual reality and more. There will also be projects for customers that aren't currently working on a personal project. Set projects will be based on the once-a-month teen art and technology programs at the library. Molly will be heading up the artistic projects and Eric will be leading those with a tech-focus. As we get to know our customers interests, we will incorporate additional stations to help meet their needs. Another great thing about Creation Lab is that the 4-hour time slot ensures that adults, homeschool families and public school kids can each have their own time in the space. 

​Additionally, there's a new video game night on the last two Wednesdays of the month from 4:15-5 pm.  We have a new video game console that will allow two players at a time go head-to-head with other kids cheering while they wait. We also have a virtual reality game that can incorporate up to eight additional players on the iPads – it is amazingly fun! And, of course, we will have the Nintendo Switch, Wii and Xbox consoles to rotate in and out so there's something new and exciting each week.

For teens, we're introducing new programs on Tuesday and Friday afternoons – start times will vary. Stay tuned for more details, but several programs will include subjects like paint pouring, podcasting, RPG, DJ skills, writing and much more.  

Our guides here in Bennett have been working creatively together on coming up with programs to engage our teens more and bring exciting things to this small community. Their passion for wanting to get more people of all ages involved in learning activities has become evident with our upcoming schedule of programs. Can't wait to see you there!
