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.

Fallout continues following New York City Police Commissioner James O'Neill's decision to fire Officer Daniel Pantaleo, over the arrest and death of Eric Garner. Garner was infamously heard on video saying he couldn't breathe as Pantaleo held him in a chokehold in 2014. Pantaleo's attorney is vowing legal action to get his job back.        The White House is looking at a possible payroll tax cut to prevent a recession. Trump administration economists are also looking at other possible tax breaks to stave off a downturn.        Planned Parenthood is leaving the federal family planning program, rather than comply with new abortion restrictions. In a statement Monday, the non-profit organization says the Trump Administration forced grantees out of Title Ten through "an unethical and dangerous gag rule" on health care providers.        Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren is apologizing for her past claims of Native American ancestry. The Massachusetts senator apologized yesterday at a Native American forum in Sioux City, Iowa and said she has learned many things. Warren released a DNA test last October after facing ridicule over her supposed Native American history.        A former accountant for the Walt Disney Company says the entertainment giant inflated its revenue for years. Sandra Kuba worked for Disney for 18 years before she was fired in 2017. Kuba says she's told the SEC that employees in the company's parks-and-resorts division systematically overstated revenue by billions of dollars.        One of the great achievements in public health is under fire after a new study found it may be affecting children's intelligence. The fluoridation of water, which reduced cavities as well as socioeconomic disparities in dental disease, might be linked to lower IQs in children. The study found fluoride exposure during pregnancy was associated with lower scores in children ages three to four.
