What's Going on @ Your Library!

Hello SummerSchool is finally out!  Yay!  Don’t get bored, follow your true north to the library.  Check out the post above for all the info on how to interact w/this blog to earn badges & books.  Did you know all you have to do is sign up to get your first badge?  Or that saying “hey” to your local librarian is also a worth a badge?  That’s well on your way to a free prize!

Also, attending programs is “badge-worthy.”  Many of our locations are offering amazing programs throughout the summer…we’ll have a weekly highlight post of stuff for teens here, but don’t forget to check out your local library’s home page (like Northgate)  for all programs!  Check ’em out and see you soon!
