Yo Yo Demonstration
Come yo yo around with Graeme Stellar, Yo Yo Master and everyday high school kid. Witness some cool tricks and learn how the yo-yo came into existence. Graeme will demonstrate the many uses of a yo yo, teach everyone some simple tricks and wrap up with a quick Q&A. Free yo yos provided for all attendees. Parents are welcome to attend with younger children. Graeme feels you're never too young (or old) to play with a yo yo. For further information, please call the Children's Department at 401-247-1920 ext. 4. Registration is not required to attend this free program.
More About Town of Barrington Public Library
The library is recognized as one of the finest in Rhode Island with a mission to provide free, diverse and easily accessible materials, services and programs that educate, inform, enrich and entertain Barrington residents, according to Director Debbie Barchi. It is a member of the Ocean State Lending consortium of libraries, which share an online catalog. It offers databases that can be accessed online at the library or from a home or business. The library strives to serve all age groups and their special needs. One of its most popular adult programs is a film series in an auditorium that boasts state-of-the-art visual equipment, a wide screen and padded stadium seating. Meeting space is available for a small fee. The library offers copy machines and homedelivery of materials. Hundreds of story hours for children from babies to pre-teens draw thousands of participants each year. The picturesque two-story library occupies most of the square footage of the retrofitted and refurbished former high school next to the Town Hall.
