#1… I am taken from mine, and shut up in a wooden case, from which I am never released, and yet I am used by almost everybody.  What am I?

#2… I am the beginning o the end, and the end of time and space. I am essential to creation, and I surround every place. What am I?

#3… There are 3 stoves. A glass stove, a brick stove, and a wood stove. You only have one match. Which do you light up first?

#4… Two fathers and two sons went duck hunting. Each shot a duck but they shot only three ducks in all. How come?

#5… What comes once in a minute, twice in a moment, but never in a thousand years?

Riddles, Riddles, Riddles…. part 2

#6… I never was, am always to be.  No one ever saw me, now ever will.  And yet, I am the confidence of all, To live and breath on this terrestrial ball. What am I?

#7… What is it that you cannot hold even ten minutes, even though it is lighter than a feather?

#8… Who spends the day at the window, goes to the table for meals, and hides at night?

#9… There was a green house. Inside the green house there was a white house.  Inside the white house there was a red house. Inside the red house there were lots of babies.  What is it?

#10… There are four brothers in this world that were born all together.  The first runs and never wearies.  The second eats and is never full.  The third drinks and is always thirsty.  The fourth sings a song that is never good.

MAKE Magazine Skill School

MAKE Magazine Skill School

Make Magazine ran an  awesome section in their April/May edition (Vol. 50) highlighting basic for more than 60 fundamental skills makers should master. From working with metals, woods, fabric, and paper to what kids of glues, screws, and drill bits to use for projects.  They even cover safety measures and what to do when accidents happen.  Check it out either via this link, http://makezine.com/tag/make50/, or come into Mancos Library and borrow our copy of Make (in the Teen Space).

Teen Nights @ Mancos Library

Teen Nights @ Mancos Library

Print

TEEN NIGHTS @ MANCOS LIBRARY… A FEW RULES…
• Teen Nights are exclusively for teens 13 to 19 years old (this means no 12 year olds and no 20 year olds, only teens. If children or adults wish to find out more they are welcome to do so, but they may not come to “hang out” on these nights).
• All teens that show up must stay for a least an hour and there may be no running in and out of the library (This means, come to stay not just come to grab snacks that are made available for those who want to participate in these events).

For Teen Game Nights
 If all game systems or game tables are in use, a teen may reserve the next available station (This means that since Teen Game Night is 3 hours long, switching systems every hour gives everyone a chance to play. Fairness is something we should already know).
 Games must remain at the librarian’s station until you intend to play and when you are done playing, please, return game to case and bring back to the librarian.
During Teen Movie Night
 Movies are not typically 3 hours long, therefore, the remainder of the time spent at Teen Movie Night is filled with anime or short videos that the teens select.
 No movie shown, nor any “filler video” shared, at Teen Movie Night will be rated higher than PG-13 or TV-14.
Be Responsible and Respectful of All Participants…
Most Importantly, Have Fun!!!
