Don't Judge Your Food By Its Cover!


Head over to Malletts Creek next Tuesday, August 8 from 6:30-8:30, when Chef Chewy of Monahan's takes over! According to Julie Halpert of the Ann Arbor News, his "food is so good, you won’t want to share it." Decide for yourself at this hands-on introduction to creating wild and crazy food that's guaranteed to impress. Come early--space is limited! This program is for teens in grades 6-12.

Imagine taking a picture using an oatmeal box, a pop can, or even a room! That's what pinhole photography is all about.

Then comes the fun when you take photographs that will be displayed at Malletts Creek Branch Library in October.

Claymation is Calling

celebrity deathmatch

You like to play with epoxy, wire cutters and clay. Or you're a painfully patient type who wants to spend YEARS filming a puppet frame-by-frame for the fame and glory that Will Vinton and Nick Park revel in. Or maybe you just like to try new things and get free food. Regardless the Claymation Workshop will be an awesome afternoon. Brad Patullo worked on MTV's Celebrity Deathmatch and the PJs with Vinton - and he's a really cool guy. WHEN: Saturday August 12, 2006: 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm (yes, it's really 5 hours - but pizza and drinks will keep you going). WHERE? Downtown. Space is limited and you HAVE to register - just call 327-8301 and you're golden - well, unless you call too late and it's filled. Don't snooze.

Animanga Club: Cosplay Prep!

Come to the Downtown library Multipurpose room this Saturday, July 29th, between 2:00 and 4:00 pm, for last minute touches on your cosplay costume. Cosplay expert Darcy from Wizzywig will be available to help with your costume and show us how to make cat collars and cat ears. DDR will be set up and of course, Pocky will be provided. See you there!

Yoga Workout! 7-8 p.m. Thursday, July 27, Multipurpose room, Downtown Library


The first of four yoga workshops is tomorrow (Thursday). Come learn how to relax, meditate, and strengthen your body. Instructor Victoria Forman-Duranona will guide you through each exercise. Wear comfortable clothing, bring a mat if you have one, and don't eat a big meal beforehand.

Animanga This Fall

Anime Full Metal Alchemist Ed

Planning Animanga Club for this fall is underway. I know everyone said they liked meeting on the Weekends but there are many football Saturdays to compete with in the fall. What about meeting Friday nights? Also, what do you think about doing Full Metal Alchemist in the fall? I also have a call for a Vintage Night.

Pre-Season is Here!

AADL-GT papermario

Start practicing for the AADL-GT Super Smash Double Dash Championship Series on Sunday, July 23, from 12-5pm downtown in the multipurpose room. Size up your opponents and get your clan together for some hard core practice playing Super Smash and Mario Kart. Prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers in Super Smash, Mario Kart single-player and team events. If nothing else, stop by for some pizza and a little single player Mario Kart. Let the trash talking begin!

Super Smash Double Dash: Preseason Tournament Next Sunday!

AADL-GT: Ann Arbor District Library Game Tournaments

It's been a long, long, off-season, but the wait is almost over. The AADL-GT Super Smash Double Dash Championship Series returns with our PRESEASON EVENT next SUNDAY, July 23rd, from Noon-5 PM at the Downtown Library. Registration is now open! This year, we've got several changes to the system planned, the biggest of which being MORE PRIZES! Each Gamecube Tournament will consist of 4 events: Super Smash Bros Free-For-All, Super Smash Bros. Team Battle, Mario Kart Single-Player Race, and Mario Kart Coop Team Race. The top 3 finishers from each event will take home giftcard prizes: $40 for 1st, $30 for 2nd, and $20 for 3rd. For Team Events, the teams will split that prize (you'll each get your own giftcard). So, if you manage to win all 4 events, you could walk home with $120 just from a single tournament!

As always, winning any single event qualifies you for the Grand Championship in december, where you'll have your shot at winning a DS, an iPod, or (hopefully) a BRAND-NEW NINTENDO WII! Read on for details about the the upcoming season...
