News Flash: Science Kits Coming to Your Library

Posted to Off the Beaten Shelf on March 1, 2021 at 12:00 AM by Elizabeth Land

Science Kits to be distributed at the library March 8-13, 2021

The library science kits are back and will be arriving at the Tabb and Yorktown Library on Monday, March 8!

This month, we will focus on engineering. Did you know that bridges have to be built in a certain way to ensure their strength and stability? In this kit, we will build our engineering skills by creating three different bridges and testing their strength. Kits will be available while supplies last beginning Monday, March 8. Kits are for children ages 5-12.

Can't make it to the library to grab your kit? We'll post the content right here on the same day the kits are available. 

Questions? Call the Tabb Library at 757-890-5110 or call the Yorktown Library at 757-890-3236.

Teen Tuesdays: Among Us events & Sus books

Posted to Off the Beaten Shelf on February 9, 2021 at 12:00 AM by Elizabeth Land

Ever wonder what you could look like in cyan? Or think you can figure out who done it before time's up? Then have I got a game for you! We're celebrating the popular video game "Among Us" at the York County Public Library!

The library will host two Among Us-themed events in February 2021.

Among Us Scavenger Hunt
Want to test our Among Us skills in the real world? Crewmates have been let loose in the library! Stop by either the Tabb Library or the Yorktown Library between Feb. 15 and Feb. 20 to help us find our wayward crew. We suspect there's an imposter among them!

Among Us Game Night
Join us at 6 p.m. on February 24 on Zoom as we play “Among Us!”
Among Us has quickly become a breakout hit of 2020. The game splits everyone between crewmates and imposters. In order to win, you and the other crewmates must find the imposter and eject them from the game. If you are one of the imposters, it is your job to kill everyone else while making them believe you are a part of their team. Can you identify who is "Sus" and who is legit?
