een Henna Workshop at the Somers Library - Thursday, May 31st from 4:30-6:00 pm. For centuries mehndi, the art of henna painting on the body has been practiced in India, Africa, and the Middle East, where the henna plant is believed to bring love, good fortune, and protection. When you adorn yourself with mehndi you are the recipient of an ancient female art form, a tradition that has been passed from one generation to the next. The henna we will be using is all natural, made from finely sifted henna, lemon juice and essential oils. With proper care a henna stain can last between 2-3 weeks. This is a hands on workshop where you will create your very own henna designs and everyone who wants one will go home with a henna by Margie. This program is intended for teens/tweens entering grades 6 and up (as of September 2018). Space is limited, please register on our online events calendar at www.somerslibrary.org or call the library at 232-5717. IMPORTANT: All Participants must have a signed permission slip from their parent or guardian. Margie Nugent is an accomplished body artist and owner of Making Faces Parties in Mount Kisco, NY.

Review
Great book. The Baudelaire's continue their miserable lives escaping from Count Olaf, who is trying to steal their fortune. They encounter mushrooms, a mechanical monster, and a distressing message from a lost friend. Read the book to find out why the 11 addition to this series only makes it better.

Good book. The story of a great American who traveled to California during the Gold Rush mixed with the story of the San Fransisco Earthquake, 1906.

This book was amazing. It had a wonderful plot line and it always left you with a cliff hanger. I would recommend this book.
