TAG on Monday!

Hey TAG folk - if you're not suffering too terribly from the after-effects of finals / the heat / endless reruns on TV, stop by the library on Monday, around 4PM. We're going to be working on a craft project, codenamed: "Elton's Specs." Not to be missed. Oh, and of course: treats for showing up!
