On Saturday, August 11th, the Space Unicats will do battle against teens from other Suffolk County Libraries. Teens will be quizzed on their knowledge of eight books selected by the Battle of the Books committee in an epic interlibrary showdown for bragging rights and medals. Awards are also given out for best uniform, sportsmanship and team spirit.
Special thanks to the Friends of the Library, money raised by their 2017 fundraising season is paying for uniforms and transportation. An Out of This World Thank You goes to Hampton Library staff member Milo for creating our Space Unicat logo.
Join us for an exciting trip to Suffolk County’s Vanderbilt Mansion, Museum & Planetarium located in Centerport. Explore the grounds of the Eagle’s Nest Estate and enjoy lunch and then an afternoon under the stars at the Planetarium. Permission slips can be picked up from the Library. Registration is required. For teens grades 7 & up
