Enjoy these quick challenges that you can do at home to entertain yourself this summer (or any time!) when you are not reading books. Brought to you by the Children’s Librarians of Buncombe County.
It is so important to keep your brain AND your body active! These challenges will help you do just that.

• Blind Drawing: You need at least two people for this - one person describes a picture that they are looking at while the other person (or people) draw what they hear. Once finished, compare the images to see the differences and similarities!
Materials:
- A picture to describe (we found simple drawings online),
- Paper to draw on and a pencil/pen/marker for each of the artists that are drawing

It is so important to keep your brain AND your body active! These challenges will help you do just that.

• Yank Me Around: Stack plastic cups into a tower with a sheet of cardstock in between each cup. Adjust the number of cups depending on the level of difficulty that you desire – 2? 3? 5?! Quickly and carefully yank out each piece of cardstock so that the cups fall and nest into a single stack. If you knock the tower over, you must start over!

Materials:
-Several plastic cups (Solo cups work well)
-Sheets of cardstock to stack in between (we cut each full piece of cardstock into four quarters)

Miss Whitley is here to teach how to make some tasty treats!

Watermelon pizza:

1 seedless watermelon, cut into 4 1 inch thick rounds
2 cups ricotta cheese
1 8 ounce block cream cheese, room temperature
¼ cup honey (can use maple or agave, up to you!)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups mixed berries (or one berry, either way!)
½ cup sweetened coconut flakes, toasted

Spread out coconut flakes on a microwave-safe plate. Try to keep them in one even layer. Microwave in 30 second intervals for 1 ½ to 2 minutes until golden. Let cool.

In a large bowl, mix ricotta, cream cheese, honey, and vanilla until smooth.

Spread all over watermelon rounds, top with coconut and berries. Enjoy!

Questions about how Confederate monuments’ proper places will be decided came to a cataclysm in Charlottesville, Va., last August, causing one death, multiple injuries and an acceleration of the evolving national debate. Locally, disputes over what to do with fixtures as prominent as Asheville’s Vance Monument have led to heated discussions and soul-searching about a path forward.

The focus of this program is to present when and where monuments were placed, who placed them, who paid for them, and a look at how they were presented to the public when they were placed. We also hope to shed light on the social and political times of Asheville, Buncombe County and North Carolina, during the time that they were erected.

Professor Fitzhugh Brundage, Chair of UNC Chapel Hill’s History Department, will headline a program on interpreting and dealing with Civil War monuments. The title of Professor Brundage’s talk will be, “A Vexing and Awkward Debate: The Legacy of a Confederate Landscape.”

The program will begin with two brief presentations by local historians. Roy Harris will survey Buncombe County’s Confederate monuments and Jon Elliston will review the history of the local white supremacy movement that undergirded the introduction of the monuments.
