Passive Program: Button Wars

Do you own or have access to a button machine? 
Then you are minutes away from a fantastic passive program for teens!

Example: Pirates vs. Ninjas
Have the teens choose sides in the Button Wars by coming to the Reference Desk and asking for a button supporting a specific side. It's simple, quick and painless for the staff! And the best part? All you need is to count your buttons before hand and then count how many are left at the end of your "war" and there you go, instant stats!
