Free Ice Cream!

Now that I have everyone's attention, I will need to clarify and sadly disappoint a few of you.  There is free chocolate ice cream for students in grades 6-12 and college students on Monday, February 18 at 4:00 PM.  As the teen librarian, I have a few goals in life when it comes to work and one of them is to find a way to feed teens at the library and say, "It's educational."  Yes, I will be giving your teen sugar, but I will also teach them about history of ice cream and how to correctly taste test ice cream.  "It tastes like chocolate ice cream," is not an acceptable answer and most likely will not be uttered by participants.  I can say this with confidence because the past two years teens have done chocolate tastings at the library and teens most often describe the samples as "smooth, nutty, or earthy."  So while your teens may only hear the words "free ice cream,"  you will be pleased to know that they will walk away with more than just a sugar buzz... they will walk away with a greater appreciation for everyone's favorite dessert.  Spaces are limited and registration is required
