In the much beloved tradition of Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), we join two misfits on an unforgettable odyssey. For a young orphan "human bean", the sight of a giant outside her window is terrifying, and she fears for her life when he whisks her away to an enchanted land. This Big Friendly Giant is not like other giants, however. The job of this larger-than-life vegetarian is to blow magical dreams into children's bedrooms, and together they embark on a quest to save England from the "gizzard-gulping" giants who don't have the BFG's tender heart. The cheeky BFG ultimately shows that heroes can come in all sizes. See the play that inspired the new Steven Spielberg movie coming out July 2016.

Dallas West Branch has partnered up with Girls Inc. to do STEAM activities during the summer.
06-02-16- Art Bots - Do you like to draw? What if you could build a robot that would create art for you? In this program, you will create an Art Bot with markers for legs that will create drawings as it moves across a paper. If you've ever been interested in building a robot, Art Bots are great place to start experimenting.
06-23-16-3D Books - Create stories that pop right off the page! Combine storytelling, art, and the science behind 3D imaging to create your own three-dimensional book. You'll learn how to draw images that look 3D when viewed with 3D glasses, and then use those skills to draw your own 3D story to take home.
06-30-16-Beginning Printmaking - Learn a basic printmaking technique and create original works of art.
