Minecraft Club–CANCELED

Saturday, Feb. 9
Minecraft is an online computer game unlike any other. It is a creative game. Worlds made out of individual blocks are generated. In these unique worlds players can build anything, mine anything, create anything, and interact with other players. The only limit is your imagination. A server for the Wilton Library has been set up with a virtual world where the Minecraft community in Wilton can meet. Minecraft enthusiasts are welcome to join the Minecraft Computer Club on Saturday mornings between 10- noon to discuss and play everything Minecraft in the Children’s Library. Ages 8 and up.

Please note: Minecraft is a subscription-based, online game. Players must bring their own laptop and create their own account.

Gone in 60 Seconds Book Club–CANCELED

Saturday, Feb. 9
Is it possible to write and perform a 60-second version of a great book? Find out as we re-tell our own high-octane versions of the best in children’s literature. Participants will pick the most important scenes, characters and lines and then speed-read through the finished product. Will we beat the buzzer? Expect fast talk, quick thinking and lots of laughter. What’s more, once we’ve learned how to edit, analyze, compromise and communicate, we’ll use technology to enhance our literary skills by creating an animated mini-movie trailer of one of our 60 second extravaganzas. The book this month is Coraline by Neil Gaiman. Grades 4-6, children under 12 must have a caregiver in the building. Sponsored by the Sherman Family Fund.
