Maker Club Defined.

What do you do at Maker Club?
We make things! At each session, we’ll focus on a different DIY.org skill area (cardboard, Perler beads, tape, mechanical engineering, and others!). Choose from suggested projects, or come up with your own. You can also get ideas for more things to make at home, work together on ideas, help brainstorm future Club projects, and show off your work.

Who is Maker Club for?
Children and teens ages 7 and up. With that in mind, children 10 and under will need help with the projects and must be accompanied by an adult. In Maker Club, we use real tools, some of which are sharp or hot – Maker Club projects are not appropriate for preschoolers.

Do I need to sign up for DIY.org to be a part of Maker Club?
Nope! DIY.org is just one way to share your work with others and ask questions. You don’t need to sign up if you don’t want to.

Do I need to come to every session, or stay for the whole session?
No, and no. You can come to as many or as few session as you want, and stay for a short time or for the whole two hours.

Monday, April 21 at 2pm
NOPL @ N. Syracuse

Cap off the long Central NY winter with this enchanting film about love’s power to thaw the deepest snows and warm the frostiest of hearts! To Queen Elsa of Arendelle, her magical powers of ice are a curse that must be hidden away. After she accidentally traps the kingdom in eternal winter, it’s up to the fiercely optimistic Princess Anna – with the help of a team of weird, lovable characters she meets along the way – to restore summer to Arendelle and save her sister from the icy prison she’s made for herself. Rated PG for some action and very mild rude humor.

Disney, 1 hr 42 minutes. Rated PG. Popcorn will be served!



Grudge MatchGrudge Match

NOPL @Cicero

Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone star as old boxing rivals who come out of retirement for one final match. On their first encounter in decades, their long-festering feud erupts into an unintentionally hilarious melee that instantly goes viral. The sudden social media frenzy transforms their local grudge match into a must-see HBO event. Now, if they can just survive the training, they may actually live to fight again!

Warner Bros. Films, 1 hour 53 minutes. Rate PG-13. Popcorn will be served.

When Zarina’s wild ideas get her into trouble, she flees Pixie Hollow and joins forces with the scheming pirates of Skull Rock, who make her captain of their ship.

Tinker Bell and her friends must embark on an epic adventure to find Zarina, and together they go sword-to-sword with the band of pirates led by a cabin boy named James, who’ll soon be known as Captain Hook. Enjoy the laughter, heart, magic and thrills of The Pirate Fairy!

Give Yoga a Try.

Many people think of Yoga as an exercise regimen or as a meditation practice. Yoga can be either of these but it can also be much more. Over the past 20 years in the US, this activity has moved from way out on the fringe into the mainstream. If you haven’t tried yoga, aren’t you curious about it?

NOPL @ North Syracuse is offering sessions at the library: there’s no cost, no walls of mirrors, no prerequisite fitness level or performance expectations. Everyone belongs, especially beginners who have never identified with the hyper-flexible people posing in yoga pictures. Please bring your own yoga mat; there will also be a limited number available to purchase for $15 courtesy of ‘Yoga with Linda.’

A certified Yoga instructor, Linda Haverlock, will be at the North Syracuse Library for five consecutive Saturdays. For more information about the instructor, please visit www.yogawithlindah.com

Registration is required for each class. Space is limited, so sign up early.
