Pokemon Trading Card Events - Spring 2023
Hosted by two youth community members in partnership, Pokemon events often consist of both trading and player vs. player card game options. Kids who have not traded or played before are able to learn from each other using a set of house rules adapted from the Pokemon Trading Card Game Rulebook by the youth leaders.
A youth community member worked closely with the Librarians and The Arts Bus to envision a Cosplay event with many elements: costume building, performance, and roleplay.

Bike Club, May - June 2023 & Bike to School Day, May 22, 2023
A series of Monday afterschool bike rides, partnering with Morgan Easton from Ridgeline to empower kids with safe riding skills. Kids learned or practiced hand signals for road riding, using hand brakes when going down street and trail hills, and trail riding skills.
For those kids that attend public schools, May 22nd was Randolph Schools' first Bike to School Day organized and run by local volunteers with support from Kimball Library, Ridgeline, Randolph Schools, and Randolph Police. Over 30 kids met up at locations all around town at 8:00am on a Monday to ride their bikes to school together.
