Stop Motion Animation Videos
On June 12th we had our Spark a Reaction Kick-Off Party. For those of you who weren't able to hang out with us that day, we played video games, did a crazy scavenger hunt around Plymouth, and made some awesome stop-motion animation videos. Our friend Alex Thomas helped us put together a review video of the stop-motion animations, which you can find on our Youtube page.
Be sure to subscribe to our channel, if you have a Youtube account, and share what you've been making. If you made a stop-motion video with us on the 12th and haven't received it yet, your dvd is waiting for you at the Reader's Advisory Desk!
Here are the stats as of Thursday, July 17.
1st place player: 241 points
2nd place player: 206 points
3rd place player: 172 points
Every point counts, so even if you're nowhere near the top three slots, you can still use your points for some pretty cool stuff. You can even log up to 5 points a day. Head on over to the Spark a Reaction page to start logging and telling us what you've been doing!

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club: The Scorpio Races
Join other teens that like sci-fi/fantasy and discuss your favorite books and authors. Plymouth Library will provide copies of the books and snacks.
On Thursday, July 24 at 7 p.m., we will discuss The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater.
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Shiver and Linger comes a brand new, heartstopping novel. Some race to win. Others race to survive. It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die. At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them. Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn't given her much of a choice. So she enters the competition - the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen. As she did in her bestselling Shiver trilogy, author Maggie Stiefvater takes us to the breaking point, where both love and life meet their greatest obstacles, and only the strong of heart can survive. The Scorpio Races is an unforgettable reading experience.
Sign up by calling 734-453-0750 #4 or online and pick up your own copy of this book while supplies last. Drinks and snacks provided.
What counts for points & prizes?
What activities "count" for points toward prizes as part of the Teen Game - Spark a Reaction? Of course, you can log what you're reading. Last summer, you earned points for visiting "maker" and D-I-Y websites or coming to a library program. This year, we added a daily quiz question. Most importantly, this summer you can earn points when you tell us what you are doing that "sparks a reaction."
Did you play a new video game? Or achieve a personal best on a game that you regularly play? Did you discover some place new? See a movie? Learn how to fix a flat tire on your bike? Take Drivers' Ed? Or master the technique to perfectly toast marshmallows? Share your experience and spark a reaction!
