Wedgie Power! Capt. Underpants Party Aug 13
He’s bald. He’s hypnotized. He likes to shout, “tra-la-laaaa.” And aside from a red curtain tied around his neck, all he wears are white cotton underpants. Kids know him as Captain Underpants, the evil school principal-turned underdressed superhero and the star of an extremely popular series of kids’ books.
To celebrate the release of the eighth book in author Dav Pilkey’s series, Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy Tinkletrousers, the library is hosting a fun-filled Captain Underpants party 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, August 13, in the Children’s Room.
Kids are invited to stop in for all kinds of Wedgie Power fun: games (Doo-Doo Toss, Underwear Fling and Professor Poopypants Name Change O’matic), contests (Guess What’s in the Dirty Diaper), making flip books, prizes and even a visit with Captain Browserpants (a certain library mascot in disguise).
Partygoers can be heroes themselves by helping local kids in need. Anyone who donates a new school supply item will receive a coupon for one free children’s book from the library’s BookCellar used books store. The library will be a Salvation Army Back to School 2012 collection site July 30 through August 17.
The Salvation Army’s supplies drive helps local children start the school year ready to learn. They are asking for folders, glue sticks, wide-rule notebooks, washable markers, colored pencils, watercolor paints, scientific calculators, compasses, pencil cases, three-ring binders, loose-leaf paper, protractors, graph paper and backpacks.
The Captain Underpants Party is free; no registration required.
