Tim and the Space Cadets write songs about the important things in life: snow days, pizza parties and summer vacations. The secret to their success is an ability to craft songs that exclude no one. They have achieved "a level of catchy power pop that pleases young kids as well as their older siblings," said Time Out New York.

Patrons will have the chance to try out the new games on Saturday, February 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Teen Central area, located on the second floor of Greenwich Library.
"Video games are now a mainstream form of entertainment for all ages and the medium of choice for the millennial generation," said Library Director Carol Mahoney. "Libraries across the country have embraced gaming by offering both video game collections and gaming programs for children, youth, and seniors. Libraries see it as a way to engage people by providing programs that support literacy, team-building and intermixing media content for learning. Video activities require traditional text literacy in order to succeed, and people can have fun participating in a social activity at the same time."
