Library hosts yo-yo show
MOKENA — The Mokena Library District celebrated National Library Week with special programs, games and activities the week of April 8.
Duncan yo-yo champion Barry North brought “around the world,” “skin the cat,” “the dog bite,” “loop-de-loop” and a plethora of other yo-yo tricks to the library April 14.
More than 50 people enjoyed the performance, and for many it brought back great memories of their youth. Everyone went home with a yo-yo and a new skill, the how-to’s of spinning a yo-yo.
