Sometimes, you need to let off some stress. While actually popping bubble wrap is definitely more satisfying, this virtual version is still pretty fun.

Finally, how do you keep up with everything happening out there on the Internet? You still have until the end of the week to fill out our Teen Tech Survey–we’ll be randomly choosing a few completed surveys and giving away some prizes!

Look for the Teen Tech Survey in the Teen Area of the Peace Dale Library or print one up now! Fill it out, drop it off in the box in the Teen Area of library.
