As always, school vacation week at the Woonsocket Harris Public Library is packed with activities for teens. On Monday February 18th Lisa Goodnow from Rob Roy Academy will be here to talk about everything associated with the academy, the history, the classes they have, and even financial aid. This event is from 3:00 to 4:00 and is open to everyone and will be held in the back of the Children’s Room.

Then on Wednesday, February 20th the library presents Bath Bombs! From 6:00 to 7:00 in the Children’s Program Room. You’ll get a chance to take home your own fizzing scented addition to bath time after being taught how they are made. Supplies are limited so space is only available for the first 20 participants. This event is open to kids over ten as well as adults. Sign up by calling 769-9044 or stop by to register.

Don’t forget the regular Teen time is still being held every Friday from 2:00 to 4:30. This is a chance for anyone in middle school or high school to hang out, eat lots of snacks and play with the new Playstation VR.

Soon after the markets closed with the Dow dropping more than 600 points, Trump tweeted he will increase tariffs on 300 billion dollars worth of Chinese goods from 10 to 15 percent starting on September 1st. Trump's tweets earlier in the day contributed to the bad day on Wall Street. He ordered U.S. companies to quit doing business with China.       North Korea is testing missiles again.

It is the seventh time since May that North Korea has tested its missile system.        President Trump wants to keep blocking some Twitter followers. His lawyers filed court papers today seeking a hearing by the full 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York on his right to block people from his personal account.
