Windsor Public Library will be having a bi-weekly Yo-Yo Club for ALL ages (kids, teens AND adults!). Yo-Yo Club will meet every other Wednesday at 2:30pm starting Wed. June 24th. New yo-yo students receive a card with a trick list on it. Learn cool tricks and earn proficiencies of Novice, Expert, Master, Pro, and Grand Master! Classes are taught by our director, who also happens to be a former international yo-yo performer! Bring your own yo-yo, or let us help you purchase a yo-yo for use. Yo-yos are also available to borrow for classes and to check out through the library. Many thanks to All For KIDZ, producers of The NED Show, for their donation of yo-yos, holsters, and extra string!

There’s a lesson here: if the director has a special talent, the library can plan a whole program around it! Christine Porter offered the first workshop in February and 20 people came. Another good turnout happened in April– so the Library launched an official club as soon as school closed for the summer.
